    CA - Robin Hoynes, 21, stabbed to death, Torrance, 30 Oct 1984

    Another tear-jerker. I couldn't stop reading this one.


    Halloween will again be celebrated at the Hoynes home, 23 years after tragedy.
    The news came to Wendy Castaneda on Halloween 1984 when, dressed as a lion, the then-16-year-old was pulled from her biology class.
    Her cousin was waiting in the hall, crying.
    "Robin was stabbed at work last night," her cousin said of Castaneda's sister.
    "Did she die?" Castaneda remembers asking.
    "Yeah, she did."
