It is with a heavy heart that I report on the death of 17-year-old Trinity Cornejo. Her mother, Chrisa, believes that her daughter’s cause of death was the result of an accidental fentanyl overdose. Though the police have not confirmed this as of yet, Chrisa is speaking out in the hopes that other young people will learn from her daughter’s tragic mistake.
Trinity was a kind and gracious young woman, who was loved by her family and friends. She attended Troy High School in Fullerton, California and was described by her mother as “the light of our lives.” She leaves behind her mother and 6-year-old sister, Paz.
Chrisa says that Trinity had come home after a party with friends on September 30 and was later found unresponsive by Trinity’s aunt. This was reportedly her first time trying drugs and her mother hopes that her death will not be in vain, and that others will learn from it.
At just 17 years old, Trinity’s life was cut tragically short. My heart goes out to her family and friends during this difficult time. May she Rest In Peace.
