A dying teenager tried to talk to her mother after being stabbed, but blood so badly wounded gurgling from her mouth.
Julia Cutter was waiting outside the restaurant where her daughter, Savannah Burford, 19, worked to take her home when Savannah was brutally stabbed by her co-worker Gabriel Enrique Turcios, 18, on Wednesday in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.
Happened By chance I looked … and she walks towards the car … and then Gabe was there. I didn’t know what he was doing … and then he fell, “said Cutter, who ran to his daughter.
‘You could tell he was trying to tell me something, but the blood was gurgling from his mouth. Blood floated all over the sidewalk. “
When Savannah lost consciousness, Cutter said she told her daughter: amo I love you.
Amo I love you and I will always be with you, and I will always think of you, and when something happens to me, I will be buried with you.
‘That’s what I told him. I love you, I will always think of you, and when I die I will be buried with you. “
‘I couldn’t save her. I took off my coat and tried to stop the bleeding and I couldn’t, “Cutter said while sobbing.
Police arrested Turcios a few blocks from the attack moments later. Cutter and his family said Turcios had been harassing the teenager, adding that the restaurant they worked together did nothing to keep him apart from her.
Turcios is accused of first degree murder and aggravated assault. His bond was set at $ 1 million and he must return to court on March 6.
Savannah’s brother, Jared Burford said: “She didn’t deserve this.” I was 19 years old and was brutally murdered. “
