No closure for family of 18-year-old mother killed in auto-ped accident

Alamo Police are investigating a fatal auto-pedestrian accident that occurred Saturday around 6 a.m.
Investigators said 18-year-old Judith Solis was walking in the middle of the road when she was hit by a Ford Explorer on Alamo Road South and Loma Linda.
Her uncle, Albert Solis, said the news has been tough on the family.
"Shocked. No one is prepared for this ever, and I just stayed on the couch and just started crying," recalled Solis.
Police are still trying to figure out why Judith was walking alone that morning.
Albert said not knowing what happened to his beloved niece is what has been the most difficult.
"Everything is sketchy. There's this story, there's that story, but we still don't know [and] that's the hardest part right now," said Solis, "that we don't have that closure of knowing her last moments or the circumstances surrounding her last moments."
He believes people were with Judith that night.
He wants them to come forward so that the family may have some peace of mind.
"Leave that cowardness behind and come forward and speak. Let us know. We want to know, we're all hurting as a family. We hurt because we don't have those answers," he said.
Longing for answers the family is trying to stay strong, remembering the young woman they love so much.
"She was a very good hearted person. She loved to laugh, she loved to joke around with the family," remembers Solis.
Judith leaves behind a 7-month-old son.
Her funeral will be held tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. at Saint Jude's Catholic Church in Pharr.
Police say there are no pending charges against the driver as he did stop to render aid.
They are still actively investigating this case and say they are talking to witnesses.
Anyone with any information is being asked to call Alamo Police at (956) 787-1454.
