Summary: student at Santa Barbara (Calif.) City College who was abducted, raped, and strangled by an unidentified serial rapist from a friend's off-campus rented home in Reno, Nevada nearly a month earlier, in which the case attracted prominent national media attention after she was last seen sleeping on a couch on January 20 while visiting her hometown over winter break, but DNA evidence links her kidnapping to two other attacks on women, presumably by the suspected rapist, near the University of Nevada-Reno late in 2007 and an earlier campus attack also could be related.
