According to Project Cold Case's database, 44-year old Juanita Cardenas was strangled to death on July 8, 1995. The murder took place in an apartment on 316 S.L. street in the small town of Dinuba, California.
Newspaper archive websites did not have any information on this 1995 murder. However, a 1978 article did mention that the Tulare County residence where 28-year old Juanita Cardenas lived had a single rifle shot fired into it. Tulare County is where Dinuba is, so based on that and the age referenced in the 1978 article, this has to be the same victim.
Based on crime location, it is advised to contact the Tulare County Sheriff's Department at 559-802-9400 if you have any information on the murder of Juanita Cardenas.

Thoughts? As of today, July 2, 2019, Juanita Cardenas's murder is still listed in the Project Cold Case database. Her murder is the 384th unsolved murder case submitted to the non-profit group that was posted on their "Faces of Unsolved Homicide" memorial wall.
The thread title is "unsolved murder" rather than "unknown killer" since I don't have any archived news coverage to indicate if detectives are trying to indict an unknown suspect, or are looking for an indicted fugitive suspect. I do see that a relative and not law enforcement submitted Juanita's case to Project Cold Case, so there are still people trying to bring the responsible individual(s) to justice. Any additional details on this murder that could help in publicity efforts can be posted to here or submitted to us privately through the above website contact form.
