Bayron Nieves was killed early Sunday morning after a man broke into a fast food restaurant on East 116th Street demanding money from the registry.
Earlier Friday, Leah Mishkin of CBS2 spoke with neighbors of the victim’s family.
“I feel sorry for her family. My condolences to her family,” Elizabeth Aponte told Mishkin. “I can’t imagine losing a child. I have three children.
Aponte described the Nieves family as polite and private, and said her mother always says hello and goodbye in passing.
“It’s sad that she was going to lose her life at a young age, especially as she just started working and trying to be productive in life,” Aponte added.

The community gathered in front of the Burger King for a candlelight vigil on Thursday, and the candles were still burning a day later. Many who passed the memorial stopped to pay their respects.
“It’s a shame, because that girl is someone’s child,” Ali Jordan said. “I really had to pay for it because it was bad.”
Kenya Webb left flowers and a teddy bear.
“He was not going to kill any 19-year-old girl,” he said. “No, no, it’s not acceptable here.”
Signs on the wall carry messages that read, “I wish you could come back” and “Harlem will never forget you.”
“I really, really hope they find out who did this, I have. I’m angry,” Webb said.
The NYPD is scheduled to share an update on the investigation at 2:30 p.m. Watch live streaming on CBSN New York.
