Susie Latweeka, left, is comforted by cousin Fiaora Tuitasi near the location in Long Beach where Latweeka's mother, Vanessa Malaepule, was found shot to death along with four others. The five were found in a brush-shrouded area next to the Santa Fe Avenue offramp on the 405 Freeway in Long Beach. Authorities described the site as a homeless encampment. Relatives say Malaepule wasn't homeless, just visiting a friend.
