& # 39; She said he would often argue with her about small things, that he would try to control her life, & # 39; Lekaj & # 39; s good friend Katie Valstar told Daily Mail Australia.

& # 39; Her father asked her all the time if she had a boyfriend and it really gave her the feeling that she couldn't do anything without running past them.

& # 39; It was very stressful for her that she had everything on her back, she told me that she wanted to leave the house.

& # 39; She had been to my house a few times, but I had never been to her because her parents didn't even want her to have friends.

& # 39; She often hung on the phone because she didn't want to get caught and got into trouble because she wasn't studying. & # 39;

Mrs. Lekaj spent her last night partying with Mrs. Valstar at The Dog and Duck, their favorite place in Adelaide.

It was a night out to celebrate an intense exam period for the smart medical student.

She was admitted to the University of South Australia after a Year 12 score of 99.35.

After their night out, Mrs. Lekaj stayed in Mrs. Valstar's house, where she stayed until about 1 p.m. on Sunday.

When she finally jumped into her white Mercedes-Benz sedan to drive home, she told her best friend she would call when she arrived.

& # 39; But she never did & # 39 ;, Valstar said.

& # 39; Her last words were "I love you, I will send you a message when I get home".

& # 39; Knowing that I was the last person to see her alive, it's really hard to come to terms. & # 39;
