A murdered teenager allegedly named the man and woman who stabbed her to death with her final breaths.
Lizette Andrea Cuesta was found soaked with blood crawling along the side of a road in Livermore, California by a UPS worker driving to work early Monday morning.
When police arrived, Lizette managed to give them sufficiently ‘compelling information’ for them to arrest her friends Daniel Gross and Melissa Leonardo on suspicion of her murder.
Sgt. Ray Kelly, from Alameda County Sheriff said: She was a very strong person, a beautiful girl.
‘She was fighting to survive and part of that fight was helping us find the people who did this.
According to BuzzFeed, Sgt. Kelly believes Lizette was tied up before she died, and added: ‘She was really suffering but she stayed with us and really fought to live.
‘She stayed present and gave us compelling information before she died,
‘We know the three were friends and (Cuesta) got into the car consensually that night.
‘The two suspects are in a relationship and live together but we are still gathering information as to why this happened.’
Lizette, a student at San Jose City College, was called ‘a loveable person and very smart’ by her aunt Amparo Lopez.
