LAREDO, Tex. (KGNS) - It’s been nearly a week since Gracie Espinoza was found dead near a park in central Laredo.

The question remains, who did it?

The hashtag “Justice for Gracie” is trending on several posts on social media, all asking for answers and those who are responsible to be held accountable in the death of Gracie Espinoza.

“Tiene que arrestar, tienen que ver un culpable.”

Mayra Rivera pleads for justice, saying there has to be an arrest, someone has to answer for the death of her daughter 19-year-old Gracie Espinoza.

“This is very difficult, I never expected this to happen to my family. This is a crime has no name.”

Family, friends, and former classmates gathered to say their goodbyes at a funeral service Monday morning.

Mayra says despite her grief, she wants the truth to come out about her daughter’s death.

“My heart knows who did this but I can’t give out names, but I know who did this.”

She recounts the last day she spent with her daughter and what worried Gracie hours before.

“The night before I was with her cooking and when I took her home she told me, ‘mom, I’m scared.’ And I said, ‘what are you scared off?’ She said, ‘well, I don’t know.’”

Mayra pleads for answers she knows are there.

“There has to be proof, because she couldn’t have done this to herself.”

Despite it being nearly a week, police have only said they are talking to people close to the case and that it’s “complicated.”

Police are asking for anyone with information on the case to come forward by either submitting a tip through their app, calling 795-2800, or Crime Stoppers at 727-TIPS.
