Funeral Plans Made After Body Was Misidentified


Family members said the CSU Bakersfield student tried to save her friend after she fell into the water.

"You help other people before you help yourself, and that's the first thing she did, she didn't think twice about it," said Daniel Orozco, Alondra Orozco brother.

Daniel said while the pictures did resemble their sister, they had doubts about whether it was really her.

Daniel said he then asked to see the body and that a Chaplain told him he could. But when they got closer, Daniel said he was told over and over again that he couldn't and would have to wait until his sister was brought to a funeral home in Delano.

So Orozco's family started planning a funeral.

"We had everything organized, we had services times, we had church times, cemetery times, and then Monday we find out none of this is true."

That's when Daniel said his family received a call from the family of the other woman who was swept away, Shreya Singh, who said they were informed that Singh was the one who was found last week, not Orozco.
