Family and friends of 23-year-old Cheyenne Sarah Watkins are holding a justice walk in her memory Saturday morning.

The 23-year-old woman was found dead last month in a home in the area of Kid Place and Westwood Boulevard. The Coroner's Office said she died of a gunshot wound to the head.

“She was a victim all the way around," said family friend Julie Doughty. "Any 23-year-old girl who is murdered and left in a vacant house. Nobody deserves that I don’t care what kind of lifestyle you are living.”

Relatives tell 23 ABC they last saw Watkins on May 28. A family member filed a missing person's report on May 31.She was found dead on June 1.

The walk will take place on Saturday July 21 at 10 a.m. starting at Railroad Park in Tehachapi.

“This is to have the community get involved in helping us find out who did this.”

Prior to the walk, there will be a balloon release.
