The hardest part is that she was alone fighting for her life,” Goodwin’s mother, Stacy Goodwin-Pitino, told KTLA. “You are helpless. You can not do anything”. Sister Kaylee Goodwin was sorry she wasn’t with Tatum to keep her safe. “I wasn’t there to protect her,” she said through tears at the vigil. “She didn’t deserve this.” Goodwin-Pitino described her murdered daughter as “a happy-go-lucky person who would give you the shirt she was wearing on top of her.” Others agreed, saying the 27-year-old was a good and beloved friend in the close-knit Laguna Beach community. A construction worker discovered Goodwin’s body “in a secluded location” near the 200 block of Ocean Avenue around 8:20 a.m. Sunday. Police said the body showed signs of trauma consistent with a homicide and detectives found the scene “suspicious.” Goodwin’s cause of death has not yet been revealed. Goodwin had worked as an assistant manager at Carmelita’s restaurant in Laguna Beach for more than 4 years. Her friends said that after finishing her shift Saturday night, Goodwin joined them first at the nearby Hennessey’s Tavern and then at the Marine Room bar. Her battered body was found hours later a few steps from his workplace.
