Full story: The Reporter

Seven years ago, a small, battered body was pulled from a lonely canal off Brown Road near Highway 113 in rural Vacaville.

Never forget Deanna Lynn Johnson who died in 1982. Her murder is has also gone unsolved.
It's time to step up DA. This is getting ridiculous. Why do we not have a cold case team solving these cases?? We were assured with DNA evidence that Deanna's murder would be solved.
GET ON IT!!!

Northern California is a very unsafe place for women. There are so many abusive sick minded men in Northern CA.

Men in this area expect too much from women. Recently, Commissioner David Haet in Solano County Superior Court has been noticed for being very abusive towards mothers in his court room. He is not above the law and should be held accountable for his abusive demeanor towards mothers who are seeking parental rights.

These abusive men are getting away with domestic violence in the Solano County court all the time. The court system in this area has given the message to our communities that men can get away with abusing women on all levels.

Once a man gets aways with domestic violence towards women numberous times there violence towards women increases, which leads to murdered women.

These men that are abusing women are from all walks of life. Some of whom are white collar professionals, which the general public tends to trust. Example Frank Kardos.

And just where do you get your facts to base this statement of Northern CA verse Southern CA?

It's my understanding that the police, her family and friends know who killed Deanna Lynn Johnson but there is no evidence to pin him and to this day none of the witnesses (I guess there are several) will admit seeing it happen.

If people know, but won't come forward, that is just pitiful.

To many people think law enforcement is like CSI, Cold Case, etc., (but they sure bitch when the various agencies purchase new advanced equipment) on TV and everything gets solved. Instead, blame the people that will not come forward with what they know. Especially in the Johnson case.

The supposed cold case team is a joke. How many cases have you heard of them working on?
I was called in for questioning when Deanna was murdered. I haven't heard anything from any kind of investigation in over 25 years. They're on top of it aren't they??!

Unfortunately you are absolutely right. The police were so sure that the DNA evidence would be the missing puzzle piece but apparently it wasn't.
I will never give up hope.

What a shame this is unsolved as well. I remember Deanna's case, it was shocking to hear of back then. Every year on that day I think of her and her family. Someone out there KNOWS what happened to both these young ladies.

Wow. You were called in for questioning? I lived here then but remember little about it. Wasn't she a 13-year-old who had gone to a party in her neighborhood in the then new subdivision off Elmira Road near the cemetery? And she was found on the railroad tracks?

I think her family would appreciate that you remember. For many years her mother annually ran a small display ad in The Reporter with her photo begging the responsible party to come forward. It's been a few years since she has run the ad. I think she may have moved away.

There are a number of people in Vacaville whom everybody knows got away with murder.
Who remembers the prominent city official who murdered his wife but it was closed as a suicide? He and his grown son still live here.

She was about my sister's age when this happened (Deanna). That these young ladies never got to go to college, get married, have children is about the saddest thing of all. To think that their killers may walk among us right here in Vacavile, and possibly are reproducing themselves is the scariest thing. I saw Deanna's poster on a bus in Vacaville about five years ago.

I have lived here in VV since 78 and remember it well and where she was found. A girl that would come to the family home every other day to walk with her to school the morning of her being found this girl didn't come to the house. So there are people who knew and still know what happeded and who did what but for what ever reason will not come forward. I just hope some day the whole story will have closure.The police and Da can only do so much with what ever evidence and witnesses they have, real life does not always have happy ending as on TV

So these people should be around 40 now? Isn't that an age where some of us start looking back on how we have lived and, in this case, maybe feel uncomfortable about knowledge we harbor about a kid who would never see 40?
Maybe it takes longer. Maybe for some, it never happens. Or maybe some would rather live under a shroud of guilt for the rest of their lives.

Right on. I always get angry when activists state that the Oakland or Richmond Police are not doing enough to solve crimes, when the "Don't snitch" rule is present in these cities. As far the CSI shows go, the one in Miami is the most ridiculous. In one silly episode Horatio Cain stopped a terrorist attack on a nuclear power plant with a sniper's rifle -- see we don't need the Dept. of Homeland Security.

A few weeks ago someone posted that one man that may have been involved in her murder died in a car accident-I called that Karma. If the people are still alive,we have to believe that God and Karma will deal with them, one day.

I feel sorry for this mother. She hasn't given up, even though she feels like everyone else has. She seems like a wonderful mom, and I hope she finds resolution.
