Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS.

Monsters Among Us: Mark Vincent Olvera raped and killed Tina Hendricks; Sentenced to life in prison

From Olvera’s appeal: In June 1989, an eighteen year old girl named Tina Hendricks was sexually battered and then murdered by strangulation, and her body was thrown into a canal in a Lake County park.   Evidence accumulated by law enforcement authorities revealed that, on the night of the murder, the victim was in a bar dancing and drinking into the early hours of the morning.   Olvera was also in the bar and witnesses testified that he attempted to dance and talk with the victim.   Certain eyewitness testimony also indicated that the victim left the bar with Olvera.   Forensic evidence indicated that the semen retrieved from the victim’s vagina matched the DNA provided by Olvera’s blood samples, and hairs found in the car he was driving that night were indistinguishable from the victim’s.   The hair was not DNA tested, however.

Olvera was charged in the death of Tina Hendricks and the jury found him guilty of first-degree murder 1 and sexual battery.2  The trial court sentenced him to a term of life imprisonment, with a mandatory term of twenty-five years on the murder conviction and a consecutive life sentence on the sexual battery conviction.

Before trial, DNA testing was done on at least four individuals:  Olvera (who is Hispanic);  Tom Hopwood, the victim’s boyfriend;  “Johnny” Lockerd, an individual who was also at the bar that night and who some witnesses identified as being the individual who left with the victim;  and a fourth individual, Ken Bowles, a friend of Olvera’s.
