It was said that a young Manuel was under peer pressure from older teens to carry out a robbery that evening and Debbie was the unlucky victim.
Manuel shot Debbie in the mouth and this affected her jaw and some of her teeth.

Manuel was eventually released from prison and kissed Debbie upon their first reunion on the same spot had shot her.
The lady sees Manuel - who lot his biological mum and relatives while in prison - as an adopted son.
