Portions of San Diego highways will be named in honor of two local teens killed more than three years ago.
The violent murders of both teens shook the San Diego community to its core.
Chelsea disappeared on February 25, 2010. The Poway High School cross-country athlete was last seen alive when she went for an after-school run that she would never finish near Rancho Bernardo Community Park.
Her body was discovered March 2, 2010 in the Lake Hodges area. Chelsea had been kidnapped, sexually assaulted and killed by John Gardner, who also confessed to killing 14-year-old Amber who went missing in February 2009.
The San Diego County Board of Supervisors and the California Legislature both unanimously approved to have the signs placed along the two highways.
Private donations were raised to create the memorial signage.
The King and Dubois families spoke Monday morning, thanking donors and lawmakers for the memorial.
