AURORA, Colo. — Aurora Police investigators are getting a lot of tips in a street racing accident last Sunday that killed a Commerce City teenager. But there are still no arrests in the case.
Friday night, more than 100 of the boy’s family and friends held a candlelight vigil to remember the happy and gregarious 17-year-old.
They gathered in the dark to shine a light on the love for Louis Guerrero-Sanchez.
They also pleaded for those who killed him to turn themselves in.
“They should just come forward,” says Louis’s cousin, Roger Valdez.
Valdez was sitting behind Louis after they’d finished drag racing on Smith Road near Ensenada—when a speeding BMW suddenly hit their driver side door.
That car had been reported stolen in Denver last month. The owner had left it running, unattended according to police.
“I blacked out a couple of seconds. Saw my cousin just lying there,” says Valdez.
Louis died two days later.
