    I was shocked to hear this on the news yesterday! I 100% bought the boyfriend's story that she died in her sleep from an alcohol and pills overdose. They seemed like any other loving high school couple at prom, from listening to the news slant at the time. I do remember the family and friends saying she wouldn't have taken pills, but I chalked it up to them being in denial. Then it faded from the news.

    According to a non-MSM source I was reading, this guy was too old IMHO to take her to a prom and get a hotel room. He needed to date someone his own age. Well, he doesn't have to worry about it any longer. RIP Jacqueline.

    She did have high blood alcohol level and pills in her system. Which is probably why he wasn't charged until now. And he is only charged with assault, not murder. Because medical examiner isn't sure if she died from an overdose or from choking.


    "Exley said Herrera told police conflicting stories about whether Gomez agreed to the choking. The prosecutor said an autopsy showed the girl had deep hemorrhaging all the way around her neck. She also had hydrocodone in her system and a blood alcohol level of .21 leaving medical examiners unclear about whether she died from the choking or an overdose, Exley said."

    He was 18, she was 17. They are pretty much the same age. I don't think age is an issue here.

    I recently watched parts of a movie on Lifetime called "Sugar daddies." In that movie, "a sugar daddy" killed a young female by chocking her during sex, because he enjoyed choking people during sex. Sounds like the same sort of deal. In the case of Jaqueline, since they can't say if she died from an overdose or from choking, he isn't being charged with murder.
    I hope he gets the stiffest penalty possible for an assault.
