Description

Two-days before her sixteenth birthday, Mandi McMasters, a teenage girl was murdered, allegedly by Valentine Underwood, a marine. In the small desert town of Twentynine Palms, California, the marines are a major attraction because they are the only group of people with money to spare. The article focuses on the life of Debie McMasters, Mandi's mother and how the case involving Underwood was handled. Some residents of Twentynine Palms claim the police ignored the incident to avoid trouble with the marines. (April 1996)
