Natalia Valbuena, 15, little sister of Spc. Diego A.
Valbuena, 23, one of the two Fort Drum soldiers found dead of stab wounds
Tuesday in their Evans Mills apartment, spoke Thursday by phone from her home in
Port St. Lucie, Fla. Her parents, Fernando and Guerty Valbuena, were too
distraught to speak to the press about the loss of their son, the second of four
Family members of Spc. Valbuena and Spc. Waide T. James, 20,
Port St. John, Fla., spoke Thursday about the young men: their commitment to the
military, their friendship, their hopes for the future.
They also spoke
of the little they knew of their relationship with Spc. Joshua S. Hunter, 20,
Ona, W.Va., the fellow soldier now accused of their gruesome double murder.
