OKEECHOBEE, FL (WFLX) - Monday night, candles placed in the shape of a cross flicker as traffic speeds by along State Road 70 in Okeechobee.
The candles mark the spot where two young women were killed early Sunday as they went out for a late night snack.
Across town, Eva Chavez holds a picture of her daughter, 21 year-old Hilda Medrano. The caption reads "Cherish the moments." But now those moments are gone. "She was very creative. She liked a lot of things," Chavez said through a translator.
Medrano was working at the Home Depot and taking college classes -- studying to be an ultrasound tech.
