Tucson police have released the 9-1-1 tapes from the family of Rosaura Hernandez after they found her dead in her apartment.
Her family believes Rosaura may still be alive if police had responded to their calls for help sooner.
Rosura’s mother said her daughter was planning to break up with her live-in boyfriend, 21-year-old Joshua Hilarie, on May 6.
Rosura went to the apartment on that day to collect her belongings.
When she didn’t return calls or texts, her family said they became frantic.
They went to the apartment several times to check on Rosaura, but got no response so they contacted police multiple times.
Police responded to the apartment about four hours after the first call and told Rosaura’s family they couldn’t enter the apartment, and they left.
Two hours later, Rosaura’s grandmother kicked in the window and the family found Rosaura dead.
The medical examiner’s report says Rosaura was stabbed multiple times and strangled.
Hilaire has been charged with her mother.
Back in June, a Tucson police spokesman told the News 4 Tucson Investigators that police did not break down the door because they felt they didn’t have enough evidence to enter the apartment without a warrant.
