The California Highway Patrol has identified two people of interest and recovered the Lexus believed to have hit and killed Fresno State student Devan Nicole Elayda early Saturday morning.

A CHP spokesman said Tuesday that the persons of interest are male and female juveniles.

Elayda, who is from Hollister, was a TikTok fashion and beauty influencer with more than 50,000 followers. The 23-year-old also had nearly 5,000 followers on Instagram.

Additional Info Sought in Case

She was driving on Highway 180 near Cedar Avenue when it is believed that she decided to exchange seats with a passenger, according to the CHP.

An oncoming vehicle killed her when she exited the vehicle near the median at about 2:45 a.m. CHP officers pronounced Elayda dead at the scene.

The CHP continues to seek the public’s help with this case. If you have additional information, contact the CHP at (559) 262-0400 or Valley Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-7867. Tipsters will remain anonymous and may be eligible for a cash reward.
