Yamauchi's loved ones don't want people to forget that the 33-year-old mother was raped and strangled on Dec 16, 2008 before her body was found behind the 4th Street Tavern...

Castrillo said she was texting with Ashley that night and she seemed fine and was socializing in a familiar place with friends. But Yamauchi's body was found the next morning wedged between a car and a fence in the parking lot behind the tavern...

"We threw every resource that we had at it," said San Rafael police Sgt. Carl Huber. He said the unsolved case haunts and frustrates investigators, especially because suspect DNA degraded in the rain that fell that night.

Yamauchi, a single mother and a resident of Greenbrae, was last seen alive on the night of Dec. 15, 2008 at the Fourth Street Tavern in downtown San Rafael. Police said she went out the back door with a man she had met at the bar, but the man’s identity is unknown...

“Unfortunately, there is nothing new to report,” San Rafael Police Department Public Information Officer Margo Rohrbacher told The Rafu Shimpo on Tuesday. “The reward is still available, but no new promising leads.”
