While homicide detectives work to find the person who shot and killed two teenagers in Libby Lake Park Tuesday, the sister of one victim said the park needs more lights and police presence.

The bodies of Fernando Felix Solano, 16, and Sandra Salgado, 14, were found around 10:30 p.m. on May 3 in the northeast area of the park located north of the San Luis Rey River and east of Douglas Drive.

Solano’s 12-year old sister Yessica said the two teenagers met at school and had been boyfriend and girlfriend for just a short time.

Yessica said her brother was a good boy and a loving son who helped take care of the family.

Solano was a student at El Camino High School and is pictured as a freshman in the school’s yearbook but the assistant principal said Solano stopped attending school last year.

Students told NBCSanDiego that Salgado attended Chavez Middle School.

Yessica Solano said her family believes the park needs more lights and police presence. She also asked the public to help solve the murders.

Anyone who has information about Tuesday nights killings should call police because, she said, the violence will continue if whoever killed her brother and his girlfriend are not caught.

Tip lines are available to handle information on the case anonymously. Call the Oceanside Police Department's information line at 760 435-4910.

The public can also call San Diego Crime Stoppers at 888-580-8477.

San Diego Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest.
