Her cause of death has yet to be revealed by the coroner’s office.

“Nobody ever wants to see your child in the bathtub the way I found her,” Jacqueline told the outlet.

“The curtains were closed, so I did n’t see her — but when I opened those curtains. I just want justice for my baby.”

Texas Rangers later identified undocumented migrant Rafael Romero as a suspect in the teen’s killing.

“She was always there for everyone — charming, young, and full of energy. That was all just cut short.”

Edna Police Chief Rick Boone wrote in a Facebook update on Sunday how committed his department is to finding justice for Lizbeth.

“As you know, we are a small department and this can call for a great demand to be put on my officers,” Boone wrote.

“They not only stepped up during their own shifts, but worked many hours willingly on their days off and past their own shift times.”

In the post, he thanked over 13 agencies and organizations who had aided in the investigation.

A GoFundMe has also been set up on behalf of the Medina family to raise money for funeral expenses.
