    CA - Tina Faelz, 14, stabbed to death, Pleasanton, 5 April 1984

    Before 14-year-old Tina Faelz was found stabbed to death near Pleasanton's Foothill High School in 1984, she and her schoolmate Steven Carlson were not known to have interacted except for the time she told him to leave one of her friends alone.

    It wasn't until nearly three decades years later that authorities linked the brutal killing to Carlson by his blood on Tina's purse, Alameda County deputy district attorney Stacie Pettigrew said Tuesday at the opening of the murder trial for the 46-year-old transient.

    Jury deliberations begin Wednesday at the trial for a 46-year-old homeless man linked by DNA evidence to his freshman classmate's brutal killing in Pleasanton 30 years ago...

    Tina was stabbed and slashed 44 times with a short blade after school at the foot of a culvert that she and other students from the Valley Trail neighborhood used to travel underneath Interstate 680. Carlson's family lived close enough to the culvert that he told police that he and his friends sat on his roof to watch the police investigation that day.

    Pettigrew called witnesses who said Carlson was intoxicated and angry from being trapped in a dumpster by other students when he was seen on campus around lunchtime. He was seen walking toward the culvert, which is right by his house, just over two hours before Tina was found dead.
