She had an after-school job at the Rock Bar and Restaurant in Aurora and worked on the night of May 8. Juliana’s mother, Lisa Serrano, was there, celebrating her 40th birthday. The mother later told police that her daughter departed around 9 p.m. in the company of three male teens. The mother identified one of them as 17-year-old Kenneth Gallegos.
