Very creepy that 20 years later some evil animal is still wandering the bars probably picking up unsuspecting women. Dont trust anyone ladies.
I believe that he was a regular patron of her bar. Now this may frighten him as I believe he will read this; but the investigators need to reinvestigate all of the patrons at her bar. This was not done by a person who is intimate or well-known to her.

This is not the fault of the police department. This murder is one of opportunity and the murderer will probably never be caught on any other charge. If anyone were to contact me, I could probably be a great help. The police dept. knows how to get in touch with me. But please do not blame them for an animal's actions.

Wow is all I can say!! For someone to get on here and write these false accusations about my aunt Tina really makes me mad!!! My aunt Tina was a beautiful person inside and out with a very loving heart!! She was forced to have a black cloud over her head because someone murdered her daughter and the murderer was never taken down! She never had closure!! And for you to say that my cousin being murder is bad karma to her is just sickening. Your a cruel heartless person to be able to say such bad thing about a person you most likely do not no!! I don't see how you can sleep at night being such a hateful person!!! My aunt Tina has passed away now and she is with her daughter now!! I love you aunt Tina and Michelle may you both rest in peace together

What was the Kingsmen? If it is a bar is it still there? Does anyone know who they think may have done this? There are a lot of similarities to this case and that of DeAnna Lynn Johnson of Vacaville. A PERSON of interest in that case lived in this area around that time, so I was just WONDERING?

Michele knew her killer. It was someone she was close to. Yes, she was stalked by this person. I just want some justice for my sister.
I hope and pray that someday someone will have the heart and own up to this for her daughter and family...:-(
