The information posted about that night is inaccurate, and I'm not sure if its deliberate or not.Read More Anybody can look up a 1982 calendar online and see September 4th 1982 was a Saturday night. It was Labor Day weekend just before the school year started. Now, I can't say for sure whether there was a Golfland in 1982, but where Golfland is today at Wolfe and ECR (El Camino Real) did not exist. It was the Woolworth Garden Center at that time. The report I read in the paper stated a driver delivering to Woolworth Garden Center found her. Not a year goes by that I don't think about Karen, especially in September. I remember the night I heard the news. I had just gotten home from camping at Pinnacles with my mom, step-dad, sister, and her friend who lived next door to us. When we got home, my next door neighbor called me and asked what Karen's last name was. When I told her Karen's name, she told me she had been murdered. She then brought over the newspaper for me to read the story. Karen and I dated that previous school year. Her murder was part of my desire to become a police officer. While I realize the colder the trail goes, the harder it is to find witnesses and evidence...I will never lose hope that her killer(s) will be brought to justice. And if I'm able to, I will be in that courtroom to see the face of the animal(s) that took such a wonderful life away from her family and friends. She will always have a place in my heart.

Since the article was silent about any offenses the teenagers may have committed, I assume theRead More teenagers did nothing wrong. That being the case, I wonder why they were "subsequently turned over to family members." Did the deputies responding to the call over react? Could this incident been hanclled better?
