One night, Randall went out for a night on the town with a friend, but never came back home. His girlfriend tried to call him several times until she felt this was seriously wrong, so she called the police.
In the 90's, there lived a great, caring man named Randall. He lived in San Francisco with his girlfriend and their daughter.
Police searched until they reached by the Golden Gate Bridge side. What they found there was horrifying.
My god. It's Randall. He's dead.
He's been murdered by a sharp object. Now we know there's a perpetrator to find.
After learning it's a homicide, detectives were told that Randall was with someone that night, but couldn't find out exactly who it was.
Randall's girlfriend said he did go with a friend. But, who?
And we even have a match. The perpetrator was someone that Randall knew.
Hey! We found the knife that killed Randall, it had blood and fingerprints on it.
If only I didn't slit my hand. And it hurt.
Turns out, the killer cut himself with his murder weapon at the crime. That blood and finger prints belongs to a man, Paiva, who was friends with Randall and was the last person who's seen Randall that night.
I told you already, I was never with him that night. I was out of town, so not guilty!
That's a lie! I witnessed Randall going out with HIM.
Paiva, you stand guilty of Randall's murder. How do you plead?
Two days after that, Paiva remained his innocence, but the judge didn't buy it. Then Paiva was convicted of first-degree murder and sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole.
Prosecutors believe that Paiva picked Randall up and he drove near the Golden Gate Bridge where Paiva took out his knife and fatally stabbed Randall. During the stabbing, Paiva cut his hand and it bled on Randall's pants. Then Paiva threw the knife into the water and fled the scene in his car.
Randall saw Paiva as a friend and never knew who he really was. Randall didn't deserve that, no innocent person does.
Best part was finding the right perpetrator and finally bringing justice for Randall and his family.
