Kathryn "Katie" Sepich
New Information On Brutal Death Of Katie Sepich
September 3, 2003--
She had a great big smile and great big eyes. She was the kind of girl that when she walked into the room, she just lit the room up. She was the center of attention, she was the life of the party. Thats how Dave Sepich, father of New Mexico State Student Katie Sepich, remembers his daughter.
The Sepich family remains in shock over the news of Katies death. As weve reported, Katies body was found Sunday morning just east of Las Cruces. Though the Sheriffs Department is not yet releasing much information into the cause of death, they are saying that she appears to have been sexually assaulted. They also say she was not killed with a gun.
Tuesday, Katies father Dave Sepich spoke by telephone with KFOX News at Nine. He says his daughter was hardworking. She had worked in her familys business since she was thirteen, and was working to pay her own way through New Mexico State. Eventually, she planned to pursue a career in marketing or in media communications. Its just amazing now that were learning the breath of how many peoples lives she touched, much more than we ever imagined, said her father.
It was in the area of east Las Cruces where Katie and some of her friends went to a party last Saturday night. Sheriffs deputies say that some point around three oclock in the morning, Katie left the party without her friends, and without her boyfriend, though no one seems to know why. There were about 50 to 60 people at the party, and deputies say it was in the three blocks between the party and her house, that Katie disappeared.
As the Sepich family continues to wait for justice, Dave Sepich wants the public to know that they are the ones who may hold the key to who is responsible. Any information at all, even though they may not think its important, wed appreciate people to come forward.
