In July 1992, a farmworker in San Mateo County, California, found the body of 25-year-old Juliette Rivera near an irrigation pond. Her head had been bashed in on the left side with a blunt object and she was already in an advanced stage of decomposition, even though she had only been reported missing 10 days before she was found.
Police quickly zeroed in on a suspect: Gregory Marc Riviera. He was 50 years old at the time of Juliette’s murder and was an acquaintance of hers, Law & Crime reported. The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office (SMCSO) found numerous inconsistencies in Riviera’s statement and issued a warrant for his arrest.
Riviera, however, had disappeared and his apartment in Alameda, California, was abandoned.
Thirty years passed without police arresting
