‘Sara was funny, kind and a great mother,’ a family friend said. ‘She was the kind of person to give you the shirt off her back.’
‘Her son, I mean, I don’t know if he comprehends that she’s never going to come back,’ another friend told KPTV. ‘It takes an evil, evil person to do something like that.’
The family has declined to comment to local media as of yet.
Police said in a statement they would release the suspect’s identity ‘at a later date’.
