Patricia Alatorre, a Bakersfield girl who turned 13 less than two months ago, was nicknamed “slim” because she was so skinny and was remembered as spunky and sweet by her teachers. Monday evening, a vigil had formed in south Bakersfield. Around 300 people gathered to remember the life of the girl who family members described as someone who aspired to drive dirt bikes and loved fishing.
