Case History Children discovered the fully dressed remains of a young female, possibly a transient, in the bushes in front of 198 Bruno Street in Daly City. She had been apparently forced to take on overdose of prescription drugs and then strangled. The autopsy identified the prescription drugs as imipramine and desimpramine - anti-depressants often used to relieve agitated psychotic symptoms. There was no evidence that she was a habitual drug user. There was no evidence of sexual assault. She did not have identification or a house key on her. Earlier she was seen buying a pack of cigarettes at Vern's Diner on Mission Street in Daly City. Some people across the street were having a garage sale and they saw her fighting with a male, but did not intervene. When investigators interviewed people from Vern's and other businesses and residences in the area, no one recognized her. Her fingerprints were sent to law enforcement agencies throughout the country, but received no hits.
