DEATH: March 5, 1996
Krystal, 13, disappeared from a convenience store in Texas City where she used the phone in hopes for a ride to a friends house in Bayou Vista, which is a short distance from there. Her body was found a few hours later under the I-10 bridge over the Trinity River in Chambers County. She had been strangled, beaten, sexually assaulted, and killed by ligature strangulation. Her face had been badly beaten.
Her case was a cold case for 14 years. The person that murdered and raped Krystal was arrested due to a DNA match in 2010.
Marilyn Monroe, Norma Jean Baker, was Krystal’s great aunt.
