In the afternoon of September 7, 1986, 18-year-old Caroline Garcia left her home in Roseville, California. She took a bus to visit her estranged husband Trinidad “Trino” Garcia.  Later, that night she met up with Trino at a park. While there, she mentioned to him that she planned on going to the house of a mutual friend, Chris Paoli.  

When she got to Chris’s house, Caroline told Chris a strange story. Earlier a drunken man harassed her at the bus stop.  Luckily for her, her friend David Allen Rundle intervened.  He chased the drunk man away and offered Caroline a ride home from Chris’s house. She never made it home.
