Family and friends say he was visiting her home for just the second time, brought there by a mutual friend when he attacked her, beating her stabbing her, and eventually slitting her throat.

“He really really brutalized your sister. He did. I heard exactly what he did to her. She didn’t deserve that. I just keep thinking that she was scared, she was hurt and she was alone and this man was doing this to her and there was nothing he could do about it.” said Capek’s older sister Marlina Rodriguez.

Neighbors say Capek did try and climb out a window but was pulled back in, even though an Uber driver tried and failed to help out of the window.

Capek leaves four children without a mother and with very little money to help raise them.
