The woman who leapt to her death from a radio tower this week has been identified as Alori Joh, an emerging singer on the hip hop scene.

Her death was confirmed by the coroner who identified the singer by her legal name Loriana Johnson, according to Our Weekly. Her body was found at the base of a radio transmission tower Monday afternoon in unincorporated Rancho Dominguez near Compton.

Alori Joh was just 25, and friends and family have been honoring the Carson native with videos, photos and other remembrances on Twitter and hip hop blogs. She was known for collaborating with Top Dawg Entertainment artists such as Kendrick Lamar, ScHoolBoy Q and Ab-Soul.

Here is a sampling of the work Joh leaves behind:
