One year after woman found murdered, family longs for answers

Family wants answers one year after woman's death

SAN ANTONIO - Sarah Gaitan first went missing in October of 2015, the 24-year-old's remains were found in a Guadalupe County field after months of desperate searching.

Her aunt, Joann Zepada, held a vigil at her resting place Sunday in hopes of keeping her story alive.

"The pain of living and not knowing what happened to her, it's a nightmare," Zepada said.

Sarah left behind four kids. 

Zepada said while authorities have been helpful, they've had no leads in the case. 

"It's been a year and we haven't heard anything," Zepada said. "I'm just hoping someone realizes that we're not going to forget, we're not going to stop, it's not going to get buried under the rug and they're not going to get away with it."

Other families with missing family members also joined Zepada Sunday for support.

"We all have I guess one thing in common and that's a missing loved one, and we all know what it's been like... they have really been with me every step of the way," Zepada said.

Gaitan's resting place is not quite complete yet.

She recently set up a GoFundMe page to raise money for Gaitan's headstone.
