Manteca Bulletin - - Local/ State -

LIVER­MORE (AP) — A driver who found a 19-year-old Cal­i­for­nia stab­bing vic­tim soaked in blood and drag­ging her­self along the side of a road said he and his friend gave her a blan­ket and prayed with her be­fore he lp ar­rived.

The vic­tim, Lizette Cuesta of Tracy, later iden­ti­fied the sus­pects be­fore she died at a hos­pi­tal.

Richard Load­holt said Cuesta had so much blood in her hair when they found her that he could not tell what color it was.

He told KCRA-TV in Sacra­mento that they gave her a blan­ket and kept her awake and talk­ing af­ter they found her early Mon­day in Liver­more.

“I hope it will be en­cour­ag­ing to her fam­ily to know that their daugh­ter did have that spirit to fight,” Load­holt told the sta­tion.

Alameda County sher­iff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly said Tues­day that two peo­ple ar­rested in the stab­bing were friends of the vic­tim.
