'Remarkable': Dying US woman's last words were to identify her 'killers'

Friends ID'd as suspects in brutal death of California woman left to die on side of road

Vigil Held For 19-Year-Old Woman Left By Roadside With Fatal Stab Wounds

Alameda County Sheriff's Office have identified 19-year-old Lizette Andrea Cuesta as the victim of Monday's deadly stabbing.

"We know the three were friends and [Cuesta] got into the auto consensually that night", Kelly 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 fighting spirit helped the 19-year-old use her final words to identify the suspects before she died at a hospital. He told FOX40 the young woman was in such bad shape he couldn't make out the color of her hair.

The 19-year-old had crawled on her stomach for almost 100 yards along the roadway, leaving a trail of blood behind her.

"I've been around a long time, and I can only think of two to three times that I'm aware of in our agency that we've been able to get a dying declaration like that", Sgt.

"Her internal fortitude, to stay alive and to fight, is pretty remarkable", Kelly said.

Daniel Gross, 19, and Melissa Leonardo, 25, both of Modesto, were arrested on February 13 over the murder of Lizette Andrea Cuesta, 19.

Adding, 'The fact that Lizette was so strong and able to survive was really a testament to her character as a person'. They were transported to the Santa Rita Jail where they were being held. "She knew she had to get up, and I commend that". He told KRON4 that he was driving when he saw her.

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.

Cuesta's aunt and her cousin set up a GoFundMe page for the teenager's funeral expenses.

Lizette, a student at San Jose City College, was called "a loveable person and very smart" by her aunt Amparo Lopez. She said the teen was the oldest of three siblings, and leaves behind a brother and sister, Lopez said. "When they did this to her they figured, you know, they got away with it", Cuesta's father tells CBS News.

Ray Cuesta said that, despite her death, he feels like his daughter won the battle against her killers. She was always fearless, strong. Authorities-who believe Cuesta was at one point tied up-have yet to provide a motive for the killing, and friends are at a loss. She brought peace to herself and peace to me and my family.
