Itzell Sanchez’ mother, Claudia Sanchez, told KTRK-TV that her daughter Sanchez had recently got back together with the 21-year-old, and said he had been physically and emotionally abusive toward her. She spoke of her regret that she had not prevented the reunion – which happened just two days before Itzell’s murder on Wednesday.

The coroner has yet to officially identify the deceased male.
What we know so far about Itzell Sanchez
Witnesses said they heard screaming as the couple was arguing moments before gunshots rang out, according to investigators. One woman was heard yelling ‘No’ several times before the gunshot were heard, investigators said.
Claudia Sanchez said she is filled with regret for not stepping in more forcefully to shield her daughter from a toxic relationship.
‘I regret that,’ Claudia told KTRK-TV.
‘I will all my life because I saw the signs. I didn’t do anything about it.’
Itzell had briefly broken up with her boyfriend but recently informed her mother that she would be resuming the relationship despite her objections.
She told her mother that she was in love. ‘He would hit her and make her feel guilty for hitting her,’ Claudia said.
‘We kept telling my daughter to stay away from this guy, he’s not good.’
Claudia received a telephone call early on Wednesday asking her to appear at the crime scene in west Houston.
‘I saw two people in those black bags and I said, “Is my daughter in those bags?” and they said yes,’ the bereaved mother said.
Claudia said that Itzell and her boyfriend were both at a party. Soon afterward, they went to an apartment complex where one of Itzell’s friends lived.
