The mother of the 18-year-old made a heartfelt plea on social media over the weekend.

“I am very lucky I am sitting here writing this instead of writing her obituary. She sustained several serious injuries including two brain bleeds, a fractured skull, the whole right side of her face is fractured and broken, a couple breaks on the left side of her face, three chipped teeth and a severely broken hand/finger which she had surgery for 2 days ago,” the post reads.
“The reason for this post is not for sympathy but to ask if anyone has information about what happened or who the monster is that did this to my little girl.”

Anyone with new information, about this investigation is asked to contact Det. Naccarato of North Division Criminal Investigations Bureau at 1-888-579-1520 ext. 2677.
