"We were supposed to meet here because she was supposed to teach me how to skateboard", Cuesta's friend Lucy Uribe said. I don't believe he did this.

Cuesta willingly got in the auto with Gross and Leonardo, according to Alameda County Sheriff's Sgt. She brought peace to herself and peace to me and my family.

"There was a rumor she had no arm (and) that's not true", Kelly said. "I'm honestly speechless. I thought he was better than this". Our deepest condolences to her family and friends.

CHP Officers and Alameda County Fire Paramedics responded to the scene and discovered a 19 year old woman suffering from life threatening stab wounds and other injuries. According to the police officers, there was a blood trail that evidence showed that Lizette had bravely crawled for nearly 100 yards along the Livermore road where she was later discovered by a motorist.

Kelly said he could not discuss a motive in the killing because the investigation was ongoing.

"That was very compelling information", Alameda County Sheriff's Office spokesman Sgt.

In the news coverage and social media commentary on the crime, The Bee has found nothing shedding further light on the relationship between the victim and her alleged killers.

Cuesta had "brutal" stab wounds on her body when she was airlifted to the hospital, where she later died. He said the two smoked marijuana and had sex the night she was killed. "She won, you know". "If she wanted that trick bad enough she would get it". "She didn't feel safe skating in Tracy", he said, referring to the victims's love for skateboarding.

Gross said he and his fiancé, Leonardo, knew Cuesta as they all worked together at a fast food restaurant in Tracy. "She further stated that Leonardo often displayed 'an attitude'".

Cuesta had bled so much it was impossible to tell her hair color and looked at first to have lost one of her arms.

He said Leonardo had nothing to do with what happened early Monday other than driving to and from Livermore. "We love her, she will always be in our hearts and it's really hard". Then, she was left dying on the road. He also said they smoked marijuana that day and he had sex with the teen in the back seat of the vehicle his fiancé was driving.
