I don't think so.All the DNA shows is they had sexual relations.I saw the girl after she was "missing".And so did at least 2 other people right next to Kennedy park. I know the guy that she was supposed to marry. He had a striking resemblance to Rhoades. I believe the killer is the girl, her best friend,at the time did it. She was jealous of Julie and now she denies knowing anything

Well you are an idiot. The creep is already on death row for the murder of an 8 year old boy whom he stabbed 70 times. I suppose his best friend killed him too because he was jealous of the new bike he got for christmas. He also has served time for the rape and attempted murder of another girl. By the way aren't you the trial whore that also witnessed Makayla Garrett getting kidnapped. Go back to your padded room Norman Bates.

Patti, what ever happened to the Tina Faelz investigation? I was in High School in Pleasanton at the time and that rocked us, but I can hardly find any information about it. It's hard to understand.

Tina Faelz! Yeah I was young (Elementary School) and living in P-Town when that happened!

I check on it every few years or so... Used to be a good little discussion going on about it with some old locals flinging a few suspects names around. Not much about her at current though... Here's what I found that mentions her... First link actually names some suspects!

I was a freshman at Foothill when Tina was killed. She was my friend, and it was such a shock to all of us...things like that didn't happen in Pleasanton. I was thinking about her today, like I have many times over the years, and wondering if they ever solved her murder, so I did a web search, and found this and a Jan 2008 article in the Contra Costa Times. One thing that was mentioned was that Tina came home late from school the day before she was killed, and she wanted karate lessons, but no one ever knew why. It was because she was being tormented by some of the "popular" girls in school and on the bus. A couple of them had threatened her, so she didn't want to take the bus home. I will never forget how those same girls clamored for attention when the press came to the school after she was killed, saying how they were her friends, and they would miss her so much. It makes me sick to this day to even think about it. I'm not saying they killed her, but she never would have walked home under the freeway if it hadn't been for them. I hope that whoever did kill Tina rots in hell, and that the girls who tormented her and drove her to take the freeway underpass that day suffer with that knowledge everyday of their miserable lives. I hope that Tina has found her peace.

I read the report about her killer and looked for comments from her friends. I am so sorry you have lived with this for so many years. I wonder if those "popular" girls have lived with any guilt or did they rewrite their own history to conveniently forget their role in her death. I'm glad she had friends.

What happened about the subject of Julie? I was 11 when this happened. Unfortunately, it's when I first learned about murder and pedophiles. I was never allowed to go to Festival Cinemas or the Pizza Joint by myself. So sad. I just saw this story on ID TV. RIP Julie.
