In a weekend incident at Penn Park in Whittier, a 19-year-old woman who had been abducted during a gunshot was found dead. Andrea Vazquez has been named as the woman.

According to the police, the young victim was killed in what appeared to be a random and senseless attack. The incident took place close to the parking spaces for Penn Park on Sunday shortly after midnight.

Andrea Vazquez: Who was she?

The age of Andrea Vazquez was 19. She was discovered dead late on Monday night in a Moreno Valley vegetation area west of Alessandro Boulevard and Merwin Street. She was a Fullerton College fashion design student who worked at a Cerritos mall.

Family members claim that Andrea Vazquez and her boyfriend were there when an armed assailant came up to their car and began shooting at them. Her sister, Edlyn Vazquez, revealed that the boyfriend left the area during the commotion. Andrea was nowhere to be found when he returned. The suspect at Penn Park seems to have picked Andrea Vazquez and her male companion at random, according to a police news release.

Gabriel Esparza, a 20-year-old resident of Whittier, was apprehended on Monday at his place of employment in Lakewood, according to the authorities. He was then taken into custody and accused of both kidnapping and murder. He was detained in the jail run by the Whittier Police Department. Esparza is currently being held without bond.

The sister of Andrea, Edlyn Vazquez, stated, “I tracked it to… going down the 60. The last known location I have of her is in Moreno Valley, where I began to follow the location when it stopped.

As part of their ongoing investigation, authorities have also retrieved a weapon they believe was used in the crime. In addition, Andrea’s 2013 White Toyota Tacoma pickup truck has been found.
