Livermore stabbing victim remembered as vibrant, joyful

LIVERMORE (KRON) — Family and friends gathered on Tuesday night to honor the life of a 19-year-old who was brutally stabbed and dumped on a rural Livermore road.

The grisly stabbing of Lizette Cuesta came as a shock to her peers who remembered her vibrant and fun to be around.

Her friend’s father, who happens to be a pastor, started off the evening with prayer. He had everyone lift a candle that symbolized the light Cuesta brought to their lives.

“These candles represent something very beautiful,” the pastor said. “Your candles represent a light that cannot be extinguished.”

The two suspects accused of stabbing Cuesta, 19-year-old Daniel Gross and 25-year-old Melissa Leonardo are due in court Wednesday morning.

A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Cuesta’s family.
