LINCOLN HEIGHTS (CBSLA.com) — Friends and family of 22-year-old Bree’Anna Guzman held a candlelight vigil Thursday, two years to the day the Lincoln Heights mother went missing.
Her body was found, near an Atwater Village freeway off-ramp, about a month later.
Suraya Fadel reported from the vigil, held not far from where Guzman’s body was found.
She spoke to the victim’s mother who said the wound of losing her daughter is still deep.
“It’s become a little bittersweet,” said Darlene Guzman Duran, “But it’s our day to day to keep going.”
The day after Christmas two years ago, Bree’Anna said she was going to the drug store and was never seen alive again.
“She said ‘I’ll be right back mom’, and that didn’t happen,” says her mother.
A $75,000 reward is being offered to find her killer.
“I’m going to keep going until I find what I’m looking for,” said Duran.
Finding her daughter’s killer is priority number one.
“It would give me a whole lot of peace,” Duran says.
Police said this is not a cold case and they believe someone out there knows something that could help them solve the murder.
