HOUSTON, TX – Lots of unanswered questions following MacArthur High School’s prom Friday night at the Hyatt North Houston.  The next morning, 17 year old prom-goer Jacqueline Gomez was found dead in her hotel room there.

In her Aldine community, people are trying to make sense of the loss.

“Pretty much a shock, we’re safe in this area and you just dont think about that something like that can happen in our area,” said Jeremy Nauta.

Commencement, a word that many associate with the end – of high school or college – really means the beginning, of the future that awaits you. Jacqeline Gomez had her whole life ahead of her.

As a community and school mourns, police have already commenced their investigation of how and why she died.
