As usual, 24-year-old Carla left her apartment around
10:00 p.m. to jog to her boyfriend Casey’s apartment two miles away. She
planned to spend the night with him and jog back home the next morning.
Carla lived in a fairly safe neighborhood in Centervale, but Casey
lived in a dilapidated apartment complex that was mostly hidden off the
main road, between a bar called Bikers-R-Us and a two-story county
office complex used by probation officers and drug rehab counselors.
Carla usually arrived between 10:15 p.m. and 10:30 p.m.,
but when she failed to reach his place by 11:00 p.m., Casey got
worried. He started calling Carla on her cell phone, but the calls kept
going to her voice mail. He called and informed the police. Before
calling the police, however, he hid the methamphetamine that he had
already prepared for a couple of Carla’s clients who were supposed to
arrive at midnight. He also hid the marijuana that he was planning to
smoke with Carla.
The police found Carla’s body within ten minutes in an
area covered with trees, between the main road and the apartment complex
where Casey lived. An investigation showed that Carla had been sexually
assaulted. She had died of strangulation.
