— Neighbors, friends and coworkers identified the woman killed Thursday as Iris Contreras.

"She was sweet and a talker," said Tienda Guadalupe employee Lidia Leon.

Contreras worked at the store on Main Street for a year, said Leon, adding that it was unlike her to not show up for work.

"I had a feeling something was wrong," said Leon at the store this afternoon. "I started calling her at 10 a.m. when the store opened and nothing."

It wasn't until some customers arrived mid-afternoon Thursday, that Leon said she found out what happened to her coworker.
