A break, and then heartbreak: Arrests in 2005 cold case murder bring answers, further questions for family of Noel …

VICTORVILLE — There’s a moment as Reuben Cornelius talks about his late brother, Noel, where his clear blue eyes — uncannily like his brother’s — seem to cloud over, and the weight of years’ worth of questions is evident.

“It’s amazing the things you don’t know about a person, even someone you love,” Reuben said. “His favorite color, his favorite food. We all had to go around the whole family and find that out.”

And the questions linger. They’ve lingered since the last day Noel was seen alive, at the apartment of a former family member. They’ve lingered in the years Noel was missing and the day detectives informed the family that a body found in the desert in 2005, burned beyond recognition, was identified to be Noel’s.

And the questions continue to linger, despite detectives finally making a break on

Widow pleads for answers in husband’s unsolved murder

SAN ANTONIO — Katrina Ornelas says theirs was a true love story.

“He was the maintenance man at my old apartment complex. So literally my husband came knocking at my door,” she said of a love story that quickly wrote itself.

“Two years later we were married,” she said.

But the love story came to a sudden end.

“By the time I knew it, I was talking to homicide.”

Ornelas’ husband, 41-year-old Nicholas Ciarrocchi, was shot on June 3rd outside an east side corner store. He died less than a mile from the home they had recently moved into.

It was the police car lights that she saw on the news that evening that changed her life.

“That’s how I really found out that that was my husband. That that was my car. It was via the news. That’s how I was informed that my husband had been murdered via 30 to 40 bullets into our car,” she said.

The shooter was never caught.

Family Still Searching For Answers In 43-Year-Old Cold-Case Killing

SOUTH LOS ANGELES (CBSLA) — Every year, Debra Thomas sends Christmas cards to detectives at the LAPD asking them not to forget her sister.

They haven’t, and now there’s a renewed effort to solve a murder mystery in South L.A. that is  more than 40 years old. It involves the killing of an elementary school teacher in her own home, and for the first time, her family is speaking out.

“Who did it? Where? Why?” the victim’s sister Thomas asked.

Those are the questions Thomas has been asking ever since she found out her older sister, Francine, was murdered.

“It makes you angry; it hurts you to the core,” she said.

In 1974, Francine Moran, 26, was a LAUSD teacher at 32nd Street Elementary School in South L.A. She was also working on her master’s degree in education at USC.

“Francine was quiet, she was very smart academically, very independent.” Thomas said.
