Lizette Andrea Cuesta, 19-Year-Old Stabbing Victim, Identifies Suspects From Deathbed

Cuesta crawled about 100 yards up to a road in Livermore, where she was found around 2 a.m.by two good Samaritans from Modesto who were on their way to work. "That's something I'll always remember about her", said Alexandra Spohn who used to skateboard with Cuesta.

Alameda County sheriff's sergeant Ray Kelly said on Tuesday that the murder suspects were friends with the victim.

When the four delivery workers found the woman in the middle of the road, she was covered in so much blood that they couldn't tell the color of her hair.

He told KCRA-TV in Sacramento he gave her a blanket and kept her awake and talking until help arrived. "If she wanted to do something, she would get it done".

"We know the three were friends and [Cuesta] got into the auto consensually that night", Kelly said. "She knew she had to get up and I commend that", he said.

Authorities said a blood trail showed Cuesta crawled almost 100 yards along the roadway before being discovered by a passing motorist, Sgt.

She was airlifted to hospital but died about two hours later.

"Prior to her death, she was able to provide us with pertinent information about her attackers", said Kelly. "She was really suffering but she stayed with us and really fought to live".

"Her internal fortitude, to stay alive and to fight, is pretty remarkable", Kelly said.

The declaration led to a "tremendous" amount of evidence and the arrests of Daniel Gross, 19, and Melissa Leonardo, 25, at their south Modesto home, The Modesto Bee reported.

Both suspects are in custody at Santa Rita Jail.

Grasty told FOX40 people who know the couple think that jealousy could have been directed at Cuesta.

"We know the three were friends and [Cuesta] got into the vehicle consensually that night", Kelly said.

'The two suspects are in a relationship and live together but we are still gathering information as to why this happened'. Ray Kelly told the San Francisco Chronicle.

"That was very compelling information. I love her", he continued. She said the teen was the oldest of three siblings, and leaves behind a brother and sister, Lopez said.

To date it remained unclear in what capacity she had known her killers, the frequency of their friendship and what may have transpired moments leading up to the teen being set on.

Roberto Cuesta, the victim's uncle, said, "I hope those people pay for that, it's just who would do that?"
