View Comments

ENNIS (CBSDFW.COM) – Moriah Gonzales was only 15 years old when her life was violently cut short. “They just took her life away,” said her grieving mother.

Cynthia Gonzales still remembers the last night she saw her daughter. “I gave her a hug that Friday evening. I told her that I loved her and she told me that she loved me,” recalled Cynthia. “She gave me a hug. I’ll never forget that.”

The next day, on March 17, Ennis police found Moriah’s body on a gravel road. It had been dumped there and set on fire.

A cross with flowers and cards remains at the spot along Knighthurst Drive where Moriah’s charred body was found.

Detectives are looking for 18-year-old Jennifer Samantha Puente for the murder. Ennis police say Puente has threaten to kill several other people and set their bodies on fire.

“I know that they’ll never replace my Moriah, but I want them to pay for what they did to my baby,” said Cynthia as she wiped away tears.

Investigators say Puente has ties to North Texas, but she may be in Laredo where she has family.
