Mourners remember life of Susana Cisneros

By: Tara Morgan - bio | email

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Heartbreaking new details tonight in the case of a murdered pregnant woman. Mourners from as far as California are in Richmond to pay respects to 24-year-old Susana Cisneros and her unborn baby boy. This as the hunt for her suspected killer ramps up in Central Virginia.

Dozens of mourners poured in to Bliley Funeral Home. Susana Cisneros' brother says the viewing is almost too much to bear, especially for his mother.

"My family is feeling bad," he said. "It breaks my heart seeing my sister with the baby in her arms."

With Cisneros in the casket, her baby boy, who she wanted to name Christopher. Her brother says relatives from California and Illinois are in town to honor her memory.

Susana leaves behind eight siblings. 12-year-old Daniel Cisneros grew up with Susana in Mexico. He thought of her as a sister.

"She could have been a great mom and I hope they do stop the guy who killed her," he said.

Police say detectives are following up on tips, but suspect Gregory Nelson Junior is nowhere to be found. His picture is flashing on billboards throughout metro Richmond.

I spoke with Nelson's mother, Francine, by phone from her Woodbridge home. She says their hearts go out to the Cisneros family that she and Nelson's father are devastated. Francine Nelson adds they're very sorry for everything and hopes her son surrenders and doesn't harm himself. I conveyed the condolences to Susana's brother.

"We don't have anything against anybody we thank everybody who supports us," he said.

Cisneros says he's confident police will bring Nelson to justice.

"I believe they will get him in quick," he said. "He cannot run for too long."

A private funeral will be held Saturday followed by a second viewing for family. The remembrances will continue on Sunday.
