REDDING, California -Driving through northern California is such a peaceful, solace-filled, meditative journey. One could get caught up in beautiful dreams and thoughts with scenery so ancient, green, and mountainous; lakes that glitter silver-blue hues in the sunshine. The last thing it evokes is thoughts of a brutal murder in the midst of the beauty.

On September 7, 2018, a grim discovery was made in the Shasta Lake, Calif. woods. A young Native woman was found shot in the head. She was so disfigured that her own mother, Tammy Carpenter, would not be allowed to identify her.
