Memorial for Murdered Teen Removed

A memorial dedicated to a murdered teen has now been removed.

The memorial was set up for 15-year-old Alyssa Otremba who was kidnapped, raped and stabbed to death in 2011 on her way back home from Arbor View High School.

According to police, Javier Righetti raped and murdered her. Her burned body was found a few days later. He is set to go to trial March 2014. His trial has already been delayed twice.

Family and friends set up a memorial where her body was found near Oso Blanca Road and Grand Teton Drive. However, the memorial was taken down because home builders DR Horton are developing the section land.

The city of Las Vegas points out that permanent memorial for Otremba is set up at Floyd Lamb Park at Tule Springs as part of a memorial to people who have lost their lives in Clark County.
