Dennis and Ione Huber, Pollock

Their daughter Denise, 23 was missing after her car was found abandoned  beside a So. California freeway, June 3, 1991.  In July 1994, her frozen body was  discovered in a freezer inside a rental truck in Arizona.  The trial for her killer, John Famalaro, began in May 1997.  Famalaro was accused of kidnapping, bounding and sexually assaulting Denise before cinching a plastic bag over her head and smashing her head 31 times with a hammer and a roofer's nail puller.  He was convicted of first degree murder with special circumstances of kidnapping and sodomy. Sentenced September 1997 to the death penalty. NOTE: July 7, 2011: Twenty years later, The California Supreme Court has affirmed the death penalty given to John Famalaro, that he had received a fair trial in Orange County.  However this does not mean that Famalaro's potential execution is imminent and his defense team will continue to make appeals.
