A man and woman were later arrested after Cuesta told the good samaritan the names of her attackers. The ID of her attackers would be the last words she would ever speak, according to motorist Richard Loadholt.
Loadholt and a friend found Cuesta soaked in blood, fighting for her life and dragging herself along the side of a road in Livermore.
They gave her a blanket and Loadholt said he prayed with Cuesta and kept her awake and talking until help arrived.
“I hope it will be encouraging to her family to know that their daughter did have that spirit to fight,” Loadholt said.
Alameda County sheriff’s Sgt. Ray Kelly said Cuesta had been out in freezing weather for several hours before she was found.
Cuesta was transported to an area a hospital where she later died from her injuries, Kelly said.
Cuesta willingly got in the car of Daniel Gross, 19, and his girlfriend, Melissa Leonardo, 25, both of Modesto, before she was beaten and stabbed, Kelly said. Kelly said he couldn’t discuss a motive in the killing because the investigation was ongoing. source
“The fact that Lizette was so strong and able to survive was really a testament to her character as a person,” Kelly said.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends at this difficult time.
