“The family was left with no closure, and they’re suffering tremendously because of the death and the manner in which our victim passed away, was murdered,” Segovia said.

Police are talking to residents in the complex and the surrounding area because “we always believe that somebody saw something that they may not even realize that’s going to be able to help us on this case,” said Det. Segovia.
