Alyssa was the victim of a deadly hit-and-run on May 28. DPS says around 3:30 a.m., an unidentified vehicle struck Alyssa and fled. She was later pronounced dead at the scene.
“Lots of anger and hate and everything. Just a lot of ifs, could have, would have, but I can’t change it. I can’t help it at all,” Pamela said.
The family say the accident happened so suddenly that many people close to her didn’t want to believe it, including her best friend Judy Nguyen. “I texted her. I was like ‘ha ha it’s a funny text when it’s all over so I know you’re alive’ and I guess a few hours have passed and she doesn’t. just never called me. “
It was true, and DPS is still investigating who killed Alyssa.
“Just give us answers like why didn’t you stop? I mean you could have stopped. You could have called. Just do whatever it takes,” Pamela said.
