Family and friends of Aisha Ximena Nava Mireles gathered this past Saturday in Compton because they want answers into her death.
On March 28, the 18-year-old left home to meet with a friend in the city of Hawaiian Gardens. Unfortunately, she didn’t return home and was discovered the next morning about 13 miles away.
Natalie Mireles, Aisha’s mother, told ABC 7 a coroner initially told her they believed the girl’s death was a suicide, but now say the cause of death has been postponed until further investigation. But The family wants answers!
Family and friends of Mireles say there is no way she would have taken her own life and supposedly, there’s evidence that could lead investigators to believe she was murdered. Days after Aisha’s death, her mother went down to the area where she was found and discovered what she said was her daughter’s tooth, as well as a lens from her eyeglasses and backpack. How was this missed?

“I hope that this protest does a difference because she deserves better than this,” said Jacqueline Aguilar, Nava’s friend. “I know she didn’t kill herself. I know someone did it to her. I just hope that she didn’t suffer.”
Her mother is demanding a full investigation into the case. What do y’all think?
