    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.

    Well, the hearings have been postponed until October due to Smith's medical issues.

    [HR][/HR]Pinyon Pines suspect Cristin Smith has lump in chest
    Colin Atagi, The Desert Sun 1:54 p.m. PDT August 1, 2014

    Motion hearings were pushed back Friday for the two suspects in the 2006 Pinyon Pines triple homicide, but one of them may undergo a medical evaluation before his next court appearance.

    The defense requested an MRI be performed on Cristin Smith, who already underwent medical examinations for an injury he suffered in Afghanistan while serving the U.S. Army. But now it appears he has a lump in his chest.

    [HR][/HR]Judge orders medical test for Cristin Smith
    KESQ & CBS Local 2 News Staff, newsline3@kesq.com
    POSTED: 04:04 PM PDT Aug 01, 2014

    The attorney for Cristin Conrad Smith said the judge told him he needed to be seen by a doctor by August 8. Smith's attorney made the request because there's speculation the lump could be male breast cancer. He wants his client to undergo an MRI.

    [HR][/HR]D.A. Paul Zellerbach ordered to appear for Pape hearing
    City News Service 1:01 p.m. PDT September 15, 2014

    Riverside County District Attorney Paul Zellerbach was ordered Monday to appear as a witness at a rescheduled Oct. 6 hearing on a motion to dismiss charges against one of two men accused in a 2006 triple murder in Pinyon Pines.

    Zellerbach was subpoenaed by the attorney for Robert Lars Pape to appear at the hearing on the dismissal motion filed by the defense.

    At a hearing Monday in Indio, Riverside County Superior Court Judge Charles Stafford ordered Zellerbach to be personally present for the hearing on the motion, which the judge rescheduled to Oct. 6 so the prosecutor could have more time to respond.

    Pape's attorney, Richard Blumenfeld, contends in his dismissal motion that the prosecution's case is "entirely circumstantial and paper thin, and rests in no small part upon assumptions and suppositions as to means, motive and opportunity which do not withstand scrutiny when measured against the objective facts."

    Ah I lost my response stupid app. I remember Becky as well as both of the guys arrested everyone thought it was the assemblywoman from cathedral city's son I can't remember his name or her boyfriend Jacob. I went to Palm Springs High School and the Cristian and Rob went to Palm Desert High School. It's surprisingly a small community in the desert cities everyone knows each other. It's so weird that these guys were arrested I always thought of them to be religious and the one guy Cristian was an ROTC meat head. I can think of 2 other people off the top of my head who knew Becky that have been arrested for 2 separate murders Amanda Lasby is facing murder charges from 2011 for killing her infant daughter and Brian Ogle who is facing charges from 2010-2011ish for killing his uncle http://m.kesq.com/Murder-Charges-Filed-Against-Nephew-In-Uncle-s-Killing/499102
    I sincerely hope these are the right guys it's scary to think people capable of murder can be amongst everyone else. Don't worry I don't want to be an insider on this case! I know I keep you busy enough with the Belvedere/Flint case. Great job Bessie! You are truly awesome for keeping these cases going and keeping the integrity of the victims by moderating and creating new threads with thorough updates.

    They won't be hard to find later, when technology improves.

    Picking my jaw up off the floor. How embarrassing for LE. They make this grand gesture 8 years later, and it unravels in less than a year. I feel awful for the families and friends of the deceased.

    Just caught this case on 48 hours, on the ID channel. I guess there has been no new evidence in the case. As of March 2016.

    Robert Pape and Christian Smith have been recharged for these murders. Let's hope these 3 people get justice this time around!!

    "Pape and Smith were charged with murder in 2014 but that case was dismissed. Authorities say they uncovered new evidence and re-charged the men on Wednesday. They wouldn't detail what new evidence has been gathered."

    Most of the case probably depends on how well the crime scene was searched, analyzed, if evidence was properly sampled and stored. I pray one day these three innocents will receive justice.

    Just read through this thread....I had missed this case when it was first posted. I just watched the 48 Hours episode on YouTube and it seems so odd to me that the charges were dropped two years ago without any real explanation. Sure would like to know more about that. It seems like these two were the obvious perps....and their cell phones being turned off during the time the murders were committed certainly seems suspicious. Hope these families get justice this time around.
