On February 12, authorities in California witnessed a heartbreaking scene when they responded to a call and discovered a 19-year-old woman dying on the side of the road.
Lizette Andrea Cuesta had sustained life-threatening injuries, including multiple stab wounds. When she was found around 2 a.m, she was covered in so much blood that police officers were unable to identify her hair color.
So what happened?
Cuesta was attacked and injured by two assailants who then drove to a road in Livermore to dump her. It's unclear whether or not the pair of criminals realized that Cuesta was still alive when they disposed of her, but that's a mistake that would come back to bite them.
The officers from the Alameda County Sheriff's Office had no leads that would be able to help them find those who were responsible for hurting Cuesta, but the teen was not ready to give up fighting.
She was airlifted to a hospital, and despite her severe life-threatening injuries, she was able to help the police find her killers.
How did she do it?
