“It’s sad — individuals for some reason are not having any regards for others’ lives or their own,” said Figueroa.
Johnny Ward told FOX6 News he is a relative of White’s ex-boyfriend, and said Lucinda was like family.
“She was a wonderful woman, known her when she went to school, known her mother, she was always a kind young lady. This really hurts, and it hurts for both sides,” Ward said.
