Myers’ badly-burned body was found last Saturday east of Santa Margarita. The teen had graduated from El Camino Junior High in Santa Maria. Family members say the young woman had won a modeling competition to go to Las Vegas.
“It boggles my mind how this could happen. We never expected this you know the way her life ended. No teenager is perfect but all teenagers have their problems and their moments, but this is just mind boggling what happened,” says Pastor Rick Bloom of Pacific Christian Center, who is currently counseling the Myers family.
Deputies were able to trace a vehicle sighted at the crime scene to a home in Nipomo. Earlier this week, deputies arrested Cody Miller, 20, of Fresno, Jason Greenwell, 20, of Nipomo, Ty Hill, 28, of Santa Maria, Jacob York, 18, of Nipomo and Rhonda Wisto, 47, of Nipomo on murder charges and booked them into San Luis Obispo County Jail.
