TYLER, TX– It was a homegoing fit for a princess at an East Texas high school’s football stadium.
Balloons filled the sky in honor of Kayla Gomez- Orozco, the 10-year-old girl found dead after she disappeared from church.
While the community mourns, police are piecing together the details of Kayla’s murder.
She vanished during prayer service Tuesday at her church in Bullard. Less than a week later, Kayla’s body was discovered in a well three miles from the church.
Cops believe her own uncle, identified as 24-year-old Gustavo Zavala-Garcia, is responsible. He’s been charged with capital murder.
On Monday, family and friends wrote letters, released balloons, all while wearing Kayla’s favorite color — pink.
