Pamela Cabriales had just had a meal with her friends and was inside her car when she was mercilessly killed by two teenagers – one of them only 14 years of age.
The nightmare took place on February 20 as the 32-year-old mother of a 6-year-old boy sat in her vehicle in Denver. She was pronounced dead at the hospital.
The killers ran away and authorities closed the highway to find them, Denver police informed the public.
Pamela’s brother, Alex, talked about the death of his dear sister.
“It was inhumane what they did to my sister. It was terrible. I mean I don’t want to be graphic, but I was at the hospital with her,” he said according to KDVR News.
“The whole top of her head was blown off, her brain was exposed. The community needs to know what these people did. My sister was beautiful.”

He revealed that their older brother was also gunned down and died as a result back in 1994 when he was only 14.
The 14-year-old suspect and his 18-year-old accomplice Neshan Johnson have been charged with the murder of Pamela Cabriales.
Her brother has called for everyone in their community to stand together following the tragedy.
“This is a call to action. (Denver prosecutor) Beth McCann has the power to make sure these two individuals never walk free a day in their life and don’t kill anyone else,” he said, according to KDVR.
“It’s not even for us. It’s for the community, for other families. We don’t want other families to go through.
“We didn’t speak up or say anything then. It got swept under the rug. I know the head of the DA’s office believes in rehabilitation, especially with minors. but there are just some individuals you cannot offer rehabilitation to. You need to look at severity of crime, their record.”
