“We’re a broken family. I’m a broken mom,” said Erika Rodriguez, Andrade’s mother.

She said her daughter wanted to do something with her life. She was an honor roll student, volunteered in her community, and donated blood regularly.

Police are reviewing surveillance video to try to find the suspect, but they do not have a license plate.

The family asked people if they know anyone that fixed the front right headlight on a white truck to tell authorities, or if they see any suspicious damage on a vehicle for them to call Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS.

Andrade also had one year left to graduate with her Bachelor’s degree.

Surveillance video below shows footage from the scene.

Authorities are not sure if the suspect’s vehicle was the first or second truck in the video.
