  • Stabbing victim moments from death tells cops who killed her

The 19-year-old Tracy woman was found stabbed and crawling along a rural East Bay road early Monday.

Suffering from multiple life-threatening stab wounds and other injuries, Lizette Andrea Cuesta was able to drag herself to the side of a road in Livermore, California, when a vehicle saw her around 2 a.m. Monday morning and quickly called for help, police said.

Despite having been beaten and stabbed multiple times, she was able to crawl 100 yards to the road where she was spotted.

Cuesta was taken by helicopter to Eden Hospital in Castro Valley, where she gave investigators what's known as a "dying declaration".

"Her internal fortitude, to stay alive and to fight, is pretty remarkable", Kelly said. Ray Kelly, Alameda County Sheriff's spokesperson, told BuzzFeed News.

The woman was then able to give authorities a name that led them to arrest a woman and man, both 19, at a Modesto, CA, home later Monday. "The two suspects are in a relationship and live together but we are still gathering information as to why this happened".

"We know that she was crawling out to the roadway to get help - (that) is what we suspect", he added.

The woman was found near Tesla Road about two miles west of the Carnegie State Vehicular Recreation Area early Monday morning.

Cuesta was found severely injured by motorist Richard Loadholt and a friend who were driving by at about 2am. "She was always a fighter, she was always courageous, strong, a leader".

"Initially they thought the woman may have had a severed arm - that was not true - She has her arm under her body as she crawled", said Sgt.

"The last thing we believe she was able to do was to point us in the direction of the people who killed her", said Sgt.

Lizette clung to life for hours after her attack and just before she died, she told police who attacked her. But neighbor Jamie Marie Smith says she still feels uneasy.

"That was very compelling information", Kelly said.

Two 19-year-olds were arrested after allegedly beating, stabbing and leaving the young woman for dead.

The agency will seek murder charges against the pair, both believed to be 19 years old.
