Alexa Denice Montez

Age 16

Boerne, Texas

Her father’s “greatest gift,” he said

A proud cheerleader, she was a beauty. “Her smile was contagious,” a friend said.

She loved volunteering in the nursery at Kingsborough Ridge Baptist Church in San Antonio, her father said, and hoped to become an obstetrician. She was “the greatest gift God had ever given me.”

Alexa Denice Montez, 16, was found shot and killed in her mother’s boyfriend’s mansion in Boerne, Texas, alongside her half-sister London Bribiescas, 10, and their mother. The Bexar County Medical Examiner’s office ruled Alexa and London’s deaths as homicides, but as of Jan. 31, 2019, police had no suspects.
