    CA - Lyle 'Kathy' Foster, 24, shot to death, Ontario, 22 March 1990 *Arrest*


    "March 22, 1990, slaying of a 24-year-old transvestite prostitute. Now, 25 years later, the reporter wrote that DNA evidence points to the killer as being someone I wrote about on Navel Gazing six years ago: a Santa Ana murder suspect whose last name is tatted in large letters on his neck.

    Richard Reil is the suspect from this case:

    Meanwhile, detectives in Ontario working the cold case murder of transvestite prostitute Lyle William Foster"

    "ONTARIO, Calif. (AP) — Twenty-five years after a transvestite prostitute was found shot to death in Ontario, detectives say they have matched scientific evidence recovered from the crime scene to an Orange County man awaiting trial in another killing.

    Police say DNA evidence links 49-year-old Richard Reil to the March 22, 1990, slaying of Lyle William Foster."

    Suspect, Richard Reil

    "Unlike other cases where family members push homicide detectives for years to solve cases, none did on Foster’s behalf. Detectives have not located any family members to tell them about Reil.

    In 1990, no family members showed up to claim Foster’s body and friends knew little about his past, other than he spoke and read Spanish, and possibly had an 8-year-old daughter named Rebecca.

    County officials buried him in San Bernardino County Cemetery.

    But “Kathy” had friends who took her death hard.

    She was a person, and a fine person regardless of what she is,” friend and roommate Bill said shortly after her death. “We all have our peculiarities, but she was still a person and she deserved better.”

    A native of Avenal, a community near Visalia, Kathy’s parents were believed to be dead. She had two brothers and a half-sister, but they had not seen one another in years."

    Tragic. Prayers for Kathy. How sad to be murdered and have no family that misses you. The suspect really gives me the creeps. I hope they throw the book at him!
