  • Case History

    The victim was located in an empty field near Yorktown Avenue and Newland Street in Huntington Beach.

    Police theorize that she got in a car with a man somewhere locally and the pair drove to a large field used for farming. The man parked the car and the pair talked while the man smoked, dropping a cigarette butt onto the dirt. Then he decided to rape her, and when she resisted, he punched her in the face.

    After the attack, the victim was pulled from the car and her throat slit. She was dragged to a nearby drainage ditch and abandoned around midnight.
