Southern Humboldt Woman Shot in Face Needs Multiple Surgeries
A shooting on Wade Road in Southern Humboldt left two victims. One, Melissa Vallecillo, faces multiple surgeries in the next few months. A GoFundMe page set up to defray medical expenses and help family members come to her side reports that it will take some time for her to recover. According to the page, doctors ” have removed one of the two bullets to her face.” She will be transferred to another hospital for reconstructive surgery.
The page describes the woman as being the victim of a home invasion robbery. So far, law enforcement has released few details about the case. They have only stated that the shots appeared to come from outside a trailer and no suspect has been arrested.
The GoFundMe page states that Vallecillo (known as Meli) is able to squeeze loved one’s hands and “move her head and legs.” It also says that she will “need to go through multiple surgeries and extensive care, but she is expected to pull through ok.”
