    Fairfield police confirmed tonight that they are investigating the discovery of a dead teenage girl found in Allan Witt Park this morning as a homicide.

    Police confirmed that the victim is a teenager who was reported missing from Suisun City by a guardian after she did not return home from school Thursday.

    I wonder what the COD is. It was ruled a homicide yet there was no signs of trauma to the body. I wonder what they are seeing to lead them to this conclusion so quickly. At least with it being a homicide they will investigate it thoroughly IMO.

    I had to go to Fairfield yesterday. I saw the park with crime scene tape, police, and news trucks. Poor girl, I wonder what happened. Reports are that she was naked.

    The girl was reportedly strangled. We found out this morning by a disheartening series of events that she went to middle school with my daughter two blocks from our house. We live on the outskirts of town in a small community separated from the actual city.

    There is a newly built community park right next to the middle school, however the park where she was found was a few miles from here in the downtown area.

    This morning, a news reporter's actions proved to us that as much as we think we're teaching our kids about safety, we can never be sure they are getting the message.

    This morning, our 11 year old son, "A" was playing with friends at the community park next to the school. A reporter from a KTXL Fox 40 news was there interviewing kids about the murder of the young girl.

    She approached our son and asked if he knew "G". The girl has been identified but to my knowledge, her name hasn't been released. Our son told us that he heard of her and said he knew the girl's friend. He only knew 'something happened at the park" and since the reporter asked about the girl, he thought something must've happened to her.

    The reporter asked him if he had the friend's phone #. "A" said he had it stored in his cell phone but he'd left his phone at home. The reporter gave "A" her phone to use and told him to call home and ask someone to get the girl's # out of his cell phone. We saw a strange # on caller ID. My bf answered. "A" said "Dad, can you get my phone and give me a #?" This is when we realized he'd left without his phone and assumed he was using a friend's phone as he has done on occasion. House rule is that you take your phone when you leave the house. I heard my bf say "COME HOME".

    In less than 2 minutes, "A" was in the house. Long story short...the reporter urged "A" to get a ride home with some man that was at the park with his son. The reporter followed the man's car to our house and was waiting across the street for "A" to come back outside with the #.

    When "A' told us he'd gotten a ride home from someone and a reporter was outside waiting for him, we about died. My bf, "V", a police officer, went outside to deal with the reporter and find out what man "A" had gotten into the car with. The man was gone. "A" said it was his friend's dad. (Not ok).
    The reporter was waiting across the street. When "V" got outside he asked her name and to see her credentials. She said "Why?". He said 'lady are you effin kidding me?" She saw nothing wrong with her actions and when "V" started walking toward her, she started walking backwards and had the nerve to say "I don't feel comfortable with you". He told her she had nothing to fear and told her he was a police officer. He reminded her that she had talked to our son without permission, urged him to get in the car with a stranger and was sitting outside our home, waiting for our child to come out with another minor's phone #.

    I'm furious with her actions and shocked that our son was so trusting because she was a 'tv reporter'. I will identify her if its ok with the mods.

    About the victim...she attended Green Valley Middle School. I don't know if her name starts with J or G. Our daughter spelled it with a G when she texted us a pic of her.

    She was in foster care in Suisun City, which is only separated from Fairfield by railroad tracks. Although the cities are basically one big town, unless she got a ride from someone, she would have had to catch a city bus to/from school because it's too far to walk to Suisun from out here.

    It has been mentioned that she sometimes cut class. Police say she wasn't known to be a runaway.

    Her grandmother started a FB page when she went missing. I don't FB so I haven't seen it, however the link was sent to my sister on her page so I can get it if need be. Since she is now an unidentified murder victim I don't know if Mods would want identifying info posted here yet.

    Mods...should I post the link??

    Wasn't there another 13yr old girl, also found dead in a park, in the general area, maybe last summer? I think she was in a baseball field in Sacto suburb? I wonder if there is any connection?

    The NERVE of that woman ! I would have been livid. Your husband showed great restraint ---good for him. I am sure he learned that on the job. But he must have been so angry, knowing what he sees on the streets.

    I hope it was a good learning experience for your son. He did many 'right' things--like coming home when he was told to. And since he knew the kid, he assumed the Dad was OK to ride with. It is hard to explain to kids that it is not always that way--even though compared to riding with a stranger, it is the lesser of 2 evils. Our poor kids---so complicated for them these days.

    Katydid, thanks for your comforting words. Yes "V" did show great restraint. He has been a cop for 20 yrs. and has more patience than I can begin to understand. I stayed inside to #1, talk to our son and #2, keep from committing an assault and battery in the presence of a police officer.

    The first thing I said was "what is the rule about talking to strangers?" and the tears came pouring down. I said "sweetheart, do you know why that reporter is asking about that little girl?" He said "I think so". So I told him a girl was killed and left at another park across town. I assumed the reporter was at our neighborhood park because it's new and you can always find kids there. Well, turns out, the reporter told him stuff we didn't know. HE told us she went to Green Valley Middle School. That info hadn't been released yet.
    That also angered me. He goes to a nearby elementary school and is afraid to go to school now. She had no business talking to him without consent about something so traumatizing. Her name is Marin Austin, Fox TV- Sacramento.

    You made me feel a lot better. Our son was being a kid. He told his dad later that "Jake's dad" brought him home. We don't know Jake and told him he is not allowed to get in ANYBODY'S car without our permission. Hopefully he understands stranger danger includes everybody other than the list of people we gave him today.

    I think 11 and 12 are such difficult ages for our kids. They are 'grown' but yet not really. They make great and responsible decisions, and then do something silly, in the next moment. It is a really intense learning curve because they are supposed to learn independence and autonomy but they are going to make mistakes. Your son was swept up in an unusual situation and was trying to make responsible choices under a stressful situation. Reporters are professional manipulators---it is their job to convince people to do things and open up. So your son was up against a huge challenge. She should have never gone after a minor like that. Pathetic.

    Great memory you have...yes, it was Jessica Funk-Haslam
    CA-13 yr old Jessica Funk-Haslam found dead in park - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community

    In the recent case, the body was dumped in a park in an open parking lot. Allen Witt Park has 2 entrances. The main entrance is on West Texas St. From that entrance, you can turn right and go to the enclosed swimming pool, a gym, tennis courts and 2 of the 4 baseball/softball diamonds . There are 2 small parking areas that dead end there.

    If you turn to the left from the entrance, you can drive all the way around the park in an "L" formation. The top of the "L" would be the exit/entrance at the other side of the park. That area has a big, open parking lot because it is where the largest picnic area of the park is. There is a big covered gazebo where the homeless have been living for years. We used to have our annual family picnics there until the homeless became permanent residents.

    From the gazebo at night, you have a clear view of the parking lot, but from the parking lot you can't see under the gazebo. Long time Fairfield residents know that. According to a witness, the body was dumped in the open lot. Either he wasn't from here or not a native. He would've known there were people in the park.

    I hope there were some witnesses that can describe the car. Maybe they can then pick it up on some cameras around town. If he dumped her at 5 am then it might be possible to see the car on a bank camera somewhere, since there wouldnt be that much traffic out.

    That article says they are looking at surrounding businesses for their video cams. I bet they will be able to see the car since it was at 5 am-ish. Not that many other cars out and so maybe they can get a tag #.
