    CA - Becky Friedli, 18, Vicki & Jon Hayward, Palm Desert, Sept 2006 **ARREST**

    I did a search and couldn't find a thread for this family. Its a case I remembered vaguely from 2006. There isn't much out there that I can find.

    Rebecca “Becky” Annaleigh Friedli was killed in a fire Sept. 17, along with her mother and her mother’s boyfriend at their Palm Desert area home. They were apparently killed before the fire.
    It seemed to become a cold case very fast.
    The last news story I see states they hadn't even identified the mom and boyfriend's bodies.

    I found thias site which has a articles on the case, I don't think it's fair people are fingering the Ex husband though.

    I think maybe the LE know or strongly suspect who it is but maybe they don't have enough proof for a conviction to be made?

    Mugshots released of Pinyon Pines suspects

    Riverside, Calif. - From Riverside County Sheriff's Department Public Information Officer Deputy Armando Munoz: On March 11th, 2014 at 2:14pm investigators from the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Central Homicide Division along with investigators from the Riverside County District Attorney's Office arrested Cristin Smith at the Palm Springs Airport.

    Also on March 11th, 2014 at 4:09pm, investigators with the Riverside County Sheriff's Department Central Homicide Division along with officers from the California Highway Patrol arrested Robert Pape in Salton City, on Treadwell Blvd and Desert Air. Both subjects have been booked for homicide at the Robert Presley Detention Center in Riverside.
    Private investigators say 18-year-old Rebecca Friedli came home to find her mom Vicki and stepdad Jon Hayward dead in the living room, with the killers still inside the house. Evidence indicates Rebecca ran out, but in the remote area of Pinyon Pines, there was no one to help. She was caught, shot, placed on a wheelbarrow and set on fire. The murderers then set the house ablaze.
    The night before the murder, a former boyfriend and a friend of his had an argument with Becky at Denny's in Palm Desert, California, where she worked as a waitress. She got off work at 7pm so the argument occurred prior. From what is known the altercation was so intense that it resulted in the friend and former boyfriend being ejected from Denny's. Then of course there was the close friend who picked Becky up from her house at 8 pm (an hour after she got off work at Denny's). That close friend appeared to be the last person to see Becky alive He dropped her back at her house sometime before 1am the next day.
