Villalobos planned to be a fashion designer and wanted to start her own line of denim jeans. Her aunt and and other family members spent a horrific night Friday, frantically trying to find her at area hospitals. Reports of two unidentified victims at County-USC hospital on Saturday sent them racing there. By late afternoon, authorities confirmed that Villalobos was among the dead.
