CAMDEN, N.J. (FOX 29) - Friends, family and loved ones said their final goodbyes to 17-year-old Nerreada Robles Saturday. The teen’s life tragically taken while walking to her best friend’s home.
White horses drew a glass carriage carrying the casket of Nerreada Robles to her final resting place in a somber and intimate goodbye to the Woodrow Wilson High School senior Saturday morning.
Loved ones gathering at the Antioch Baptist Church on Ferry Avenue in Camden, New Jersey, just three miles from where police say Nerreada was killed Feb. 13 when a Camden County police cruiser hit her.
