According to police, a 19-year-old who had been kidnapped and killed in a random attack at a Whittier park over the weekend was discovered dead.

The event took place close to Penn Park’s parking lots on Sunday just after midnight.

According to family members, an armed man approached Andrea Vazquez and her boyfriend as they were in their car and started shooting at them. Her sister Edlyn Vazquez claims that Andrea was gone when the boyfriend returned after he had left.

As soon as he turned around to ask for help, my sister was kidnapped.

Gabriel Esparza: Who is he?

A 20-year-old Whittier resident named Gabriel Esparza was taken into custody on Monday at his place of employment in Lakewood.

He is currently being held without bail at the Whittier Police Department jail after being charged with murder and kidnapping.

Police deemed this murder to be random. The suspect at Penn Park appeared to have randomly chosen Andrea Vazquez and her male companion, according to the most recent information.

In Moreno Valley, late on Monday night, Andrea’s body was found in a grassy area close to Alessandro Boulevard and Merwin Street. Andrea worked at a Cerritos mall while attending Fullerton College to study fashion design.

After the incident, Edlyn allegedly used Apple’s Find My iPhone feature to track down Andrea for a short while.

“Driving down Highway 60, I came across it. I started tracking it because that was the last known location I had for her, and it came to an end in Moreno Valley,” she continued.

A weapon that was allegedly used in the crime was discovered in the interim. Andrea’s white 2013 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck was also discovered.

The case will be presented to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office on Wednesday, according to the police.
