Campus Murders Brianna Denison
On, Jan. 20, 2008, Brianna Denison, 19, was in her hometown of Reno, Nev., on a break from Santa Barbara City College in California when she was murdered. After disappearing from her friend's house, where she had been sleeping on the couch, her body was found in a vacant field in southeast Reno a month later.

Ten months after her disappearance, Reno Police Lt. Robert McDonald told ABCNews.com that authorities were led to James Michael Biela, 27, after receiving an anonymous tip. In addition to the murder charges in Denison's case, Biela was charged with sexual assault and first-degree kidnapping in a Dec. 16, 2007, attack on a Taiwanese exchange student.
