"The day after Felicia went missing, a man went over to mow the grass in this field," said Carrie Ruiz.
"When he walked up into the field, he could see something there and that's when he found Felicia's body."
"My husband Lou passed by the field that morning after Felicia went missing," sobbed Felicia's mother, Carrie Ruiz.
"He didn't even know his baby girl had been left for dead in the weeds right there."
Police believe Lisa Huerta and Jay Ferrel -- behind bars for the murder of Felicia -- were hiding in wait by this vacant house for Felicia and Jesus to arrive.
"Sometimes I stand out by the window and picture Felicia walking up to the house," said mother Carrie Ruiz.
"Our house used to be so full of life; then all of a sudden, it was gone."
Felicia's headstone decorated on what would have been her 28th birthday. "The cemetery staff said they've never seen parents that come so frequently, so they gave us our own bench next to her grave," said mother Carrie Ruiz. "We go every day to clean off her headstone and talk to her a bit."
Felicia's parents, Lou and Carrie Ruiz.
"It's been a hard road for us and the past 11 years, we've been living and breathing this," said mother Carrie Ruiz.
"We're never going to stop until we're buried right next to her."
Cops say Jay Ferrel, Lisa Huerta and Jesus Salazar told Felicia they were going to a Halloween party Oct. 30, 1999. Police say that was a ruse and that together they killed the innocent girl in cold blood.
"Felicia was the type of person to really put you at ease," said mother Carrie Ruiz.
"She had that kind of personailty from the moment she was put on this earth."
"Felicia was the type who didn't see the bad in anybody," said mother Carrie Ruiz.
"She was too trusting, and that's what got her killed.
She never in a million years thought anybody would hurt her like that."
Age progression drawing released by the Houston Police Department of what Jesus Gerardo Salazar might look like today.
Felicia Ruiz was just 17 years old when cops say she was brutally murdered by Jesus Gerardo Salazar.
Cops say Jesus Salazar has the word "Flaco" tattooed on the top of his left wrist/hand with dots on each knuckle, as well as a rosary on his left middle finger.
Cops think Salazar could be sticking close to his mother -- Estella Rosa Esquivel Rivera Salazar. She is not considered a suspect in the case.
