Sunday marks one month from the day that 18-year-old Jennika Suazo was found dead in her own home. Eureka Police have not yet revealed many details but they are calling her death suspicious. Her family wants to make sure the teenager is remembered and justice is served. They plan on holding a candlelight walk Sunday starting at 6 p.m. at 322 P Street near where she was found deceased.

Relative Gina Portillo said that her family has just received word that Jennika had graduated early from Zoe Barnum High School. Jennika, who planned to be a nurse, died before she found out that she had succeeded on the first step of her dream. In a way, this walk will be the graduation ceremony she never got.
