THE BRONX -  

Family and friends said a final farewell to a 15-year-old girl who was murdered in Hunts Point last month.
 
The funeral for Destiny Sanchez was held at Saint Anselm Parish on Tinton Avenue and was followed by burial at Saint Raymond's Cemetery.
 
Sanchez's step-uncle, 34-year-old Luis Vega, has been arrested and charged with endangering the welfare of a child after prosecutors say he gave the teen alcohol not long before she died.
 
No arrests have been made in connection with her death.
