There is nothing more scary than losing a family member. But the prospect of not knowing what happened to them is much scarier. This family lost their beloved member and are now left looking for answers about what happened…
25-year-old Yesica Martínez was on her way home from her new job when the unexpected happened. The young mother apparently messaged her husband Mario Morales that she was on her way home but never showed up.
“This is just a dream. I’m going to wake up and she’s going to come home and we’re going to be happy,” Morales said.
The 25-year-old had just started a new waitressing job on Thursday night. And on Friday her car was found having been involved in a crash at Woodall Rogers Freeway in Dallas, but Martínez was missing.
“My sister was the most amazing person,” Martínez’s distraught sister, Adriana Diaz, said. “She didn’t deserve this.”
The local sheriff shared that they got a report about a crash at about 1 a.m. the same night it happened. Martínez’s family says they were told she was heard arguing with a man on her 911 call.
“But you could hear her asking for help,” Manzo added.
Her family shared that her phone and glasses were found in the car wreck. Which they flagged as strange. “She can’t see without her glasses. There was no reason for her to be like, ‘Oh, let me set my glasses down so I can walk around blind.’ That’s just not logical for her to do,” Diaz stated.
“And we told them, given the circumstances of what happened, we didn’t believe she just left,” Morales added.
On Sunday, the family found the young mother’s body. It was found behind a fence that had to be cut through by first responders.
The fence was located across several lanes of the North Stemmons Freeway southbound service road, and below the freeway where her SUV crashed.
“We have been looking for three days, non-stop,” Diaz added. According to local law enforcement officials, her death is being investigated as unexplained. “It seems like a nightmare,” Diaz said.
Her family is now left with a lot of unanswered questions. “What did they know? What did they do?” Manzo said. they are asking people to come forward if they have any information about the accident or death. “Any information helps,” Manzo added.
“She was the one I went to for everything, even though she was my little sister,” Diaz said of her sister.
The family has organized a GoFundMe to help with Yesica’s funeral costs and expenses.
