“Emily was mega fun and loved everybody. She was alwayz doing things 4 ppl without even thinking about it. People talking hate would piss her off more than what peeps call her. She never cared what anybody said about her. She was always free and independent and her own girl.
“We have a tribute to our friend at http://discordia.loveshade.org/xtra/emily.html.”
Emily Sander / Zoey Zane is gone but, thanks to the Net, there’s no chance she’ll be forgotten any time soon.
She was murdered and the police are still looking for her killer.
If you have any information of the whereabouts of Isreal Mireles, please call El Dorado Police at 316-321-9120. Please do not call the police unless you have direct information on this case, the police are working hard to track down Israel Mireles, and unnecessary calls only hinder their efforts.

Emily was outgoing and liked to have fun. She made friends very quickly and easily. She bubbled with energy, and was well liked. Like Dorothy in the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz who dreamed of going “somewhere over the rainbow,” Emily dreamed big dreams.
She wanted to have a body piercing studio or become a music video director. Or both. And those were just a beginning, before she moved on to directing
movies. Her enthusiasm, creative spirit and zeal for life were obvious.
While not as obvious, Emily also had a practical side. At age 17, she began attending community college to study business. During the day, she worked as a secretary to earn money. Her head may have been in the clouds, but her feet were on the ground. Even if they were dancing.
She also made a little money posing sans clothing, which unfortunately became an overwhelming part of her news coverage, especially in the headlines. Before the connection was made between college coed Emily Sander and nude model Zoey Zane, most of the stories of her case were from news sources inside of
Kansas–the “missing girl story” was largely local. But as often happens in America when the phrases “nude model” or “naked teen” or “porn star” are thrown about, everything boiled over.
Unfortunately, Emily Sander will likely be remembered by the public as the nude model, or even the porno model, who was fatally stabbed. But as far as we know, Zoey didn’t pose in any sexually explicit photos with anyone, although some of her solo shots were suggestive. But that too was a part of her expressing herself, of being free, and of sharing with others. Those who have seen her modeling photos have seen a sense of playful fun, of life, and even of dance.
Ironically, under her model name of Zoey Zane, Emily posed in a costume reminiscent of one of the friends of Dorothy, the Tin Man. It’s ironic because the costume apparently wasn’t Emily’s idea. But her modeling name may have been–the first two letters of “Zoey” are “Oz” spelled backwards. In any case, she made it all work.
She grew up her little girl roleplaying into her adult modeling, easily switching from Tin Man to Cow Girl to Princess.
Emily was physically affectionate with her family and friends, and outgoing and friendly with new people. She loved hip-hop dancing, and saw life as a chance to have fun, and share that fun with others. She seemed to enjoy life the most when helping others enjoy life too.
Meanwhile, “Emily’s body was released to her family after forensic examinations and an autopsy,” says KSN.com, “however, the cause of death has been sealed.”
A viewing is scheduled for this Wednesday, December 5, at Carlson Funeral home in El Dorado, says the story, adding:
“The funeral is set for Thursday, December 6th at 1p.m.
“The main suspect in the case 24-year-old Israel Mireles is still on the run. Mireles is believed to be heading to Mexico with his 16-year-old girlfriend Victoria Martens.”
