Family and friends of Jeremy Sanchez visited the site near the San Gabriel River where the 17-year old missing South El Monte High School student’s body was found late Wednesday. Many not only mourned his brutal stabbing death but were in shock after police arrested Sanchez’s close friend as a suspect in his murder.

“We knew he was like bisexual, you know,” close friend Nelly Mendoza told Fox11 News. “We never thought in 2018 it would be a problem.”
