Candlelight vigil held to remember slain mother
Family and friends gathered Sunday to remember a young mother whose body was found by road workers amid bushes near the 2 Freeway and Riverside Drive.
The woman, Bree'Anna Guzman, 22, left her Lincoln Heights home on the evening of Dec. 26, the last time she was seen alive.
More than a month later, a woman's body was found by Caltrans workers near the Riverside Drive onramp to the 2 Freeway in Elysian Valley. She was naked from the waist down, wearing only one sock.
"We just want to know why," said Celina Ararcaon, Guzman's best friend. "Why would somebody even bother her? She was somebody's best friend, somebody's daughter, somebody's mother."
Guzman had two daughters, a 5-year-old and a 1-year-old.
