Dying stabbing victim names killers


A 19-year-old stabbing victim dragged her bloodied body 90 metres to get help from a passing motorist and used her final words to identify her alleged killers. Ray Kelly told the San Francisco Chronicle.

"I hope it'll be encouraging to their family that their daughter did have the spirit to fight", he said.

First responders requested an emergency helicopter and the woman was air-lifted to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley, where she was pronounced dead about two hours later.

Her relative Joana Cervantez said, "She was a very happy person, very friendly, kind".

A TEEN found fatally stabbed on the roadside has named her "killers" with her dying breath, California cops have said.

After she was brutally stabbed, Cuesta had crawled almost 100 metres - the length of a football field - to get to the road, where she had some chance of being seen by people in passing cars. One of the men said he could not determine her hair color due to the amount of blood. "I'm going to leave it at that", Kelly said.

The Alameda County Sheriff's office confirms that 19-year-old Daniel Gross and 25-year-old Melissa Leonardo were booked for murder Tuesday morning.

"We know the three were friends and [Cuesta] got into the vehicle consensually that night", Kelly told Buzzfeed News. "The last thing we believe she was able to do was point us in the direction of the people that killed her, and that's pretty remarkable". "She was really suffering but she stayed with us and really fought to live". "She would fall and get right back up and try it", Yanez said. I'm proud of her.

Alameda County officials say Cuesta told investigators who hurt her shortly before dying at a hospital.

Cuesta had moved to Tracy to live with her father. She won. She showed them. "If she wanted that trick bad enough she would get it". Kelly described her as a friend of the couple, whose Facebook pages indicate they are engaged.
