Driver recalls finding Tracy stabbing victim along road
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.
