Castro’s family is now speaking up about her apparently abusive relationship with Landaeta, saying they had been worried about it for years before her death on Thursday morning.

Her father, Marty Castro, told ABC7 how he took every chance to try to stop her from seeing him, saying: ‘Every time I saw her, I would beg her, “Don’t talk to him, leave him.”

‘And it seemed like the more I did that, the more she would see him.’

He and the victim’s grandmother, Danielle Gannon, described Castro as an independent woman.

She had attended Menlo-Atherton High School, from where she earned her GED, and was working as a Door Dash driver at the time of her death.

Castro was ‘determined to raise her daughters on her own,’ Gannon said.

But she apparently faced some problems in her relationship with Landaeta, whom Gannon alleged ‘is a diagnosed schizophrenic on  meds.’ She claimed he ‘would use that as an excuse for his behavior.

‘He drank excessively and you’re not supposed to do that on those kinds of medications,’ Gannon explained.

Marty is now warning parents: ‘If there’s somebody out there abusing your daughter, don’t take off. Don’t let it go. Don’t take “no” for an answer.

‘You will feel responsible no matter what anyone says.’
