The Advocate further published If anyone wants to go to Walnut Beach around 6 to honor Maren, we can bring candles and light them for her. All are welcome."

Sanchez was believed to be the target of a stabbing after turning down a date proposal for the upcoming prom at Jonathan Law High School, which was scheduled for tonight.  The prom has been postponed out of respect for the Sanchez family and friends, and the Milford Community.
