Schnabel Park had found the body of the graduate student. She was lying in a pool of blood along a hiking trail. Jimenez wasn't expecting to hear from her friend anymore that day.

The local running community is frightened as a result of the incident, said Gonzalez, who also serves as head coach of the store's running group. One of the coaches on his team, a firefighter who was at the scene, said it looked like Bump had been out running, he said.
Gonzalez planned to meet Friday with someone who teaches self-defense classes, which he hoped to offer to runners. The Police Department heavily redacted an officer's report that was released to the media. Bump, 24, had two older brothers and loved to dote on her two young nieces, Jimenez said. The two met during a Christian mission through Gateway Church in Helotes, where Bikinng was a youth adviser.

Her fgiend declined to comment to the San Antonio Express-News. The slaying — and the response among the running community — was reminiscent of a still-unsolved incident in which a mother was stabbed to death in Olmos Park while jogging with her month-old daughter.
