FOX San Antonio - FOLLOW UP STORIES

She was 95 years old, bedridden and living in an assisted living community when she died in a fire. Now her granddaughter, Yvonne Lozano, is having to relive the painful memories after a fire killed 4 mentally challenged men on Norwood 2 weeks ago. Ramona Martinez's family thought her death would be the last in this sort of living facility. But as Lozano told us today the City of San Antonio should have done something sooner. Now Martinez's family and the D.A.'s office is waiting for a proposed ordinance that would regulate these facilities to be done.
District Attorney Susan Reed says, "I need the city to do their ordinance. Its up to them". Reed says if an individual breaks a law or an ordinace it makes it easier to show reckless negligence in the event of a death.
The City of San Antonio has said it will be ready to show the City Council a proposed ordinance in October.

Hundreds remember dead Texas cheerleader

COLORADO CITY, Texas (AP) -- Hundreds of people are joining the parents of a 13-year-old Texas cheerleader to remember the teenager who disappeared in December 2010 and turned up dead last month.
Through songs and prayers they remembered Hailey Darlene Dunn's short life. The memorial was held Sunday at Colorado Middle School where Hailey was a cheerleader.
Dunn's body was found in March near Lake J.B. Thomas in Scurry County, about 20 miles northwest of Dunn's hometown of Colorado City. Last month, officials confirmed the remains belonged to Dunn.
An investigation into Dunn's death continues. Officials have not released a manner and cause of death. No arrests have been made.
Authorities initially named Shawn Adkins as a person of interest. He was Hailey's mother's boyfriend when the teenager disappeared. He has not been charged.
