On Friday night, Geovanni Molina, Mendoza’s cousin, stated that while nothing can bring Norelis back, there is a remarkable sense of relief.
According to the family, all the law enforcement agencies involved, particularly the Hudson County Prosecutor’s Office, did an exceptional job and they would like to express their gratitude.
