    Friends honored Priscilla Pimienta at High Tech High’s prom on May 28, 2011.

    Friends describe Priscilla Pimienta as “outgoing” and the “nicest person” who “everyone loved.”

    She also apparently loved to walk around without shoes.

    So when friends and family wanted to remember the High Tech High senior on what would've been her prom night, they decided to forgo the heels and attend the dance without shoes in Priscilla's memory.

    Like most high school seniors, Priscilla was excited to attend  prom and looking forward to college. For Priscilla, it was going to be Sonoma State University in the fall.

    Then, on May 24, her body was discovered inside her family's Bay Terraces home along with her parents, Georgina and Alfredo, and her little sister Emily.

    Three of the bodies were discovered in the family’s backyard swimming pool, and a fourth was in a bathtub, police said.

    Investigators believe Alfredo killed his wife and two daughters before committing suicide Tuesday morning at their Bay Terraces home.

    He was apparently grief-stricken over his son’s death and had marital issues, a source told NBCSanDiego.

    Alfredo was the last of his family members to die at 162 Parkcreek Ct., according to a Medical Examiner’s Office report released Wednesday.

    A family member reported discovering the bodies at 6:40 a.m. Alfredo asked the relative to come to the property for a “business transaction,” San Diego police said Tuesday.

    Funerals for the family have not yet been arranged.

    A memorial fund has been set up to help relatives of the family. Donations to the Prissy and Emily Memorial Fund can be made at any Wells Fargo Bank branch or can be mailed to High Tech High.
