My dad used to talk about a girl he knew when he was in high school who was murdered by her ex-boyfriend. I'm not sure if she went to a Downey school, my dad went to Warren High and graduated in 1969. He said she had just broken up with him and she was getting ready for a date, and her old boyfriend showed up and stabbed her to death. Her brother came home and found her.

Does anyone remember this story? I am curious what happened to the murderer, hoping justice was served and he ended up in prison. My dad has passed away and I'm not sure what the girl's name was. It's just something he used to talk about but I don't remember him ever saying what happened with the case.

This is very old but I'm bumping it to see if anyone has any information. I've always wondered about this.
