[Mirror>The boy, who had been diagnosed as having an autistic syndrome, told his family that he had an alter ego called Ed who had instructed him to kill someone.
Elizabeth's mother Alison described how the family had found her death "difficult to accept" and how she was now placing "flowers on her grave when I should be putting them in her hair".
It says: "Elizabeth was very family orientated, she would spend a lot of her time at home chatting about all sorts of stuff, she was a great talker.
"She would spend time with her grandma and phone and visit her often. Elizabeth was mature beyond her years and was at the stage of her life that she was becoming comfortable with whom she was; we were so proud of her.
"Elizabeth would have been celebrating her 18th birthday on the 8th September; it should have been a day of celebration.
"We have no further milestones to look forward to, no A-level results, driving lessons and university applications. Our sadness will last forever."Discuss this story with fellow Project Casting fans on Facebook. On Twitter, follow us at @projectcasting.
