The Murder of Analissa Monares-Leon

Just before 5 a.m. on an October morning in 2007, shots were fired into the West Dakota Avenue home killing Analissa Monares-Leon. 

Analissa was a 7 year old in Tucson, Arizona. She is said to have been sensitive, courageous, and loved helping other people. Analissa loved school and her smile could light up a room. 

That night Analissa was sleeping on the living room couch when shots were fired. She was struck and killed. According to police this was not a random shooting but no further details were provided to say why they feel this. 

Neighbors say that there was a Chevy Tahoe and an Oldsmobile sedan in the area around 1:30 that morning. They also reported seeing 2 men under 25 in the area (one was wearing a baseball cap) just after the shooting.
