      I hope the police are investigating this to the fullest, they need to be checking friends and their phone records to see who was the last person they were in contact with. They wouldn’t get in the car with anyone to go all the way out to Pittsburg. This is really sad, I do know what it’s like to lose a family member especially a young woman in this way, so we are praying for your friends and family.

    Thats shady.. i went to Mt. Diablo wit brianna. she kinda hung with the wrong crowd, especially dudes she talked to, but wasn’t really a bad person herself.. it’s crazy becuz most ppl i know really frm tha city out here were her and her friends, but i didn’t assume it was her off top. I read somebody write a comment about her dimples and just assumed it was her and it really was.. R.I.P
