Pecos Family Grieves the Loss of Their Daughter 1/13/14
PECOS - 28-year-old Kristina Lopez was found dead in her home in the City of Pecos late Saturday night. The scene was originally called in as a suicide, but Lopezís family tells CBS7 they donít believe Kristina would take her own life.
Kristinaís brother Joe Lopez told CBS 7, "Kristina was a caring person who loved her children with all her heart. She would never do anything that would put her kids in harm. She would never take her life."
The family says that the police's person of interest is the father of Kristinaís children. The family went on to say the scene was only manufactured to look as if Kristina had taken her own life.
The oldest child was with grandparents at the time of Lopez's death, but the two younger children were at home when it happened. The family says one of the children saw at least some of the scene unfold.
Kristinaís body was taken to Lubbock for an autopsy, which is scheduled for Wednesday.
The family will sell sandwich plates for $7 as a fundraiser at the Best Western Swiss Chalet, 141 S Frontage Rd., on Tuesday afternoon from 4p.m. to 6 p.m.
