Taylor-Theberge said Savannah just got engaged and called her a week ago to share the news and show her the ring.
“This guy coerced her to go under the (inaudible) that they were going to be engaged and he wanted her to meet his family,” she explained.
She says she was shocked to learn her daughter’s fiancé was 29-year-old Raymond Weber.
“I almost fell out when I saw who it was because she had been involved with him in the past and it was a bad experience,” Taylor-Theberge said.
After watching the disturbing livestream video, Taylor-Theberge identified Savannah as one of the victims by looking at her tattoos and features. Police on Tuesday confirmed to CBS13 that Savannah was one of the victims.
At this time, police aren’t releasing the identity of the 15-year-old girl, per the request of her family.
She says Savannah’s 27th birthday would have been this week and tells CBS13 she worked and lived in Utah and believes the engagement is what led her to California.READ MORE: Gov. Newsom, Lawmakers Reach Deal To Get California Children Back In Classrooms
“She was a good girl and this was somebody that manipulated her and took advantage of her. She was not a drug addict street person,” she explained.
Savannah’s best friend Meg Grubbs is heartbroken over Savannah’s passing and thinks about Savannah’s 4-year-old son.
“She was an amazing mother and did everything that she could to make her little boy happy,” Grubbs explained.
