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.
