Memorial events begin for Tieton teen killed in a car crash
YAKIMA, Wash- The community of Tieton was rocked last Friday when a teenager was killed in a car crash on his way to school. Monday at Keith and Keith funeral home on Yakima Avenue, the first of a week of memorial events for Alejandra Verduzco took place. Friends, family, and classmates gathered for a viewing.
Verduzco was known to his friends as Alex. They told KNDO the seventeen year old was well known and liked. With less than 400 students, Highland High School was a tight knit community. The superintendent says his death has had a tremendous impact on the school.
Details about upcoming memorial events for Alex will be available Tuesday. They will include a memorial service, a rosary, and a funeral.
