 BENTON COUNTY, WA- A family member of one of the victims reacts to the triple homicide.

Alexa Torres is the twin sister of Abigail Torres, the 23-year-old found dead Saturday morning on a Benton County farm, along with two other victims, Victoria Torres, 19, and David Perez Saucedo, 23.

Alexa Torres confirmed that her sister Abigail Torres attended New Horizons High School in Pasco and was still a resident of the city.  She also said Abigail was a single mother of two young children.  Abigail was also in her second trimester of pregnancy and was expecting a baby girl.

“I talked to her on Friday, and nothing seemed to be wrong,” said Alexa Torres, “and she told me she had just been looking for a job.”

Alexa recently moved to North Dakota, but her and her sister remained close.  Most of their family lives in Texas and they have a stepmother that stays in the Tri-Cities.

“She was very caring and a very strong woman.  I just hope that she's in a better place now,” said Alexa.

Alexa also said she never remembered her sister mentioning having a close friendship with the other two victims, but she thought they knew each other through mutual friends.

The coroner's office and the sheriff's office are expected to release more about the triple homicide soon.
