On June 26, 2016, 23-year old Deverrie Schiller was strangled to death in the central park area of California City, California. The investigation has not released in a suspect being publicly identified.
Unfortunately, someone took photos of Deverrie's murdered body at the crime scene and uploaded them to social media. The really disgusting action caused great trauma to Deverrie's mother, Debi Fones when she came across those images.
Debi in 2018 took the action of getting three billboards up in the California City area to spread awareness of the still unsolved murder investigation. The concept was taken from the recent film, "Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri".
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact the California City Police Tipline at 1-855-227-3656 if you have any information on the murder of Deverrie Schiller.

Thoughts? As of today, January 12, 2019, Deverrie's murder is unfortunately still unsolved as it was just uploaded to a non-profit group's website called Project Cold Case yesterday. The facebook page as well as the official website for the group will be posted here as they have an extensive listing of cold cases (mainly out of Florida where they are based in).
Deverrie's mother has since criticized local law enforcement, not in their lack of resources but in the department's interest in fighting the war on drugs rather than investigating homicides. We are usually supporters of law enforcement on this forum, but I will personally admit sometimes there is too much of a focus on drug usage and trafficking compared to violent felonies. Sadly this appears to be an issue in unsolved murders along with fugitive investigations.
Finally, I'm only referencing the crime scene photos being uploaded to social media because I'm outraged at the sheer disrespect of doing so. News flash to whoever did that, you notice law enforcement tends to never post crime scene photos of actual homicide victims up close, unless it's an unidentified Jane/John doe case.
Debi Fones is reportedly not in the best of health, so someone needs to do the right thing and help get justice for Deverrie's family, by ID'ing and putting her killer away behind bars.
