Visitation, funeral scheduled for slain Cobb County girl Abbey Hebert

Final arrangements have been made for Abbey Hebert, the 17-year-old Cobb County girl allegedly stabbed to death Saturday by her step-cousin.

Visitation will be held from 1:30 to 4 p.m. Thursday at Northstar Church, located at 3413 Blue Springs Road NW in Kennesaw. A funeral service will follow at the same location.

Hebert, a senior at Allatoona High School, was found dead Saturday morning outside her family’s Acworth home. Eighteen-year-old Olivia Smith, the niece of Hebert’s stepfather, was arrested at the scene and has been charged with felony murder.

Cobb County police have not released information about a possible motive, but warrants obtained by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution allege the girls had an”argument” before Smith grabbed a kitchen knife and attacked Hebert, following her outside and stabbing her multiple times while a neighbor watched.

Smith and Hebert were, by most accounts, close friends. Earlier Saturday morning, they had gone to Chick-fil-A to pick up breakfast, and warrants allege they smoked “suspected marijuana” and began to eat together before the attack.

Hebert’s father, Steve, posted on Facebook that her Allatoona High classmates will wear T-shirts honoring her at the school’s Friday night football game against Starr’s Mill. The shirts say “#abbeystrong” and bear the colors of her favorite college football team, LSU.
