Update 01/11/2017: This article has been updated to reflect Pablo Gomez, Jr.’s preference of the pronoun they and additional information from the Berkeley Police Department.

The victim of Berkeley’s first homicide of 2017 has been identified as Emilie Inman.

Inman was a 27-year-old Berkeley resident who worked as a nature programming and science instructor for middle school-aged students at Sienna Ranch in Lafayette. She was reported missing by friends and family Friday. BPD sent a Nixle alert Wednesday verifying Inman’s identity. 

Berkeley Police Department has not yet confirmed the victim’s identity.

Inman graduated from UC Santa Cruz with a degree in environmental studies. According to Sienna Ranch’s website, Inman always had a love for humans and nature. The site said she was born and raised in the French countryside and moved to San Luis Obispo, California when she was 10 years old.

The primary suspect of the homicide, UC Berkeley student Pablo Gomez, Jr., is currently being held in the Los Angeles County jail system without bail. Burbank Police Department arrested them Saturday.

A previous version of this article incorrectly stated Emilie Inman graduated with a degree in environmental science. In fact, she graduated with a degree in environmental studies.
