LOS ANGELES (CBS) — A vigil was held Thursday for the girl police say was found dumped, nude and in a plastic container along the 5 Freeway near Boyle Heights.

Police believe the container was possibly pushed from a moving vehicle.  Homicide detectives are still working the case.

KCAL9’s Rita Garcia talked to friends and family of the 17-year-old they remembered as a bright, loved girl who got along with everyone.

They were still in a state of shock…searching for answers. They all said the same thing. Who would do such a thing to Michelle Lozano?

Michelle was the oldest of six. She had told her mom she was going to take a walk to the store. That’s the last any of her loved ones saw of her.

They can’t fathom, or maybe it’s better they don’t…how she could have come to such a grisly and unfortunate end.

Her friends and family told Garcia that Michelle had hate and love tattooed on her wrists. Fitting they feel now — love for their sister and hate for the person who ended her life.
