After discovering his ex-girlfriend fatally strangled while visiting South Carolina for her high school graduation, an Ohio teen was detained on suspicion of her murder.

After Natalie Martin, also 18, was discovered dead in her hotel room on Maison Drive in Myrtle Beach on June 7, WMBF reported that Blake William Linkous, 18, was in arrest on murder charges.

According to her friend Brooklyn Ferrell, Martin, of Roseville, was at the beach town celebrating her graduation from Philo High School last month.

According to the publication, Linkous was detained by the Horry County Police Department on Thursday and charged with homicide.

Martin is alleged to have been manually strangled by Linkous on Tuesday before she abandoned her body.

Martin and Likous were Philo High School classmates who dated for a few years before recently splitting up, according to Ferrell, who spoke to The Sun News.

Tuesday afternoon found Linkous still being held without bond.

According to social media posts, a vigil will be held in Martin’s honor on the soccer field at Phil High School on June 15.

Martin was employed by Sundale Kids as a childcare worker at the time of her passing, according to her obituary.

“Natalie lived her life to the fullest with joy, laughter, and love,” the message said.

“She brought true happiness to all that knew her. She had a free, pure and wild spirit with a contagious laugh, a personality out of this world that could bring anyone out of their darkest of days. Her glowing blonde hair and beautiful blue eyes represented that she was truly an angel here on Earth.”
