The following are some tributes posted on social media to honor the life and the legacy of the deceased.
It is hard for me to believe that 20 year-old Rosimar Rodríguez Gómez was kidnapped on island 100 miles by 35 miles and nobody knows where she is or what happened to her. She is one of at least 18 women who have disappeared in #PuertoRico this year. https://t.co/ahp39psOT8
