By Bryan Callahan. CREATED Jul 26, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- It has been one week since 34-year-old Maricela Faurrieta's body was found dumped in an east Las Vegas Valley neighborhood.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police still have not identified anyone as a suspect or made any arrests in the case. However, they are looking for a person of interest who may know something about the woman's murder.

Faurrieta was found on Fairchild Street in the early morning hours of July 19. She was reportedly with a man, described as her boyfriend, on the evening of July 18.

Family members are working to cope with the loss of the mother of four children. They are also working to raise money for her funeral.

Her children were at a fundraising car wash Saturay and talked about how they miss their mother's laughter and her hugs and kisses.

Her funeral is set for Monday. Donations are being accepted at Wells Fargo. The account number is 6357062766.

Anyone with information about the man believed to have been her boyfriend is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
