Default Rebecca Young in Miami

I was wondering if I can get more info. on the murder of Rebecca Young from Miami. I believe the time of the crime was around 1991.

Sure. She was murdered in a sugar cane field. There was a witness to the murder, who telephone police after it happened, but didn't give out his contact info, and hasn't called back. Police believe he would have gotten a good look at the suspect and the car, and want to speak with him again. I'm missing a few details, maybe one of the forum veterans can fill in the blanks, but hopefully this is a good start.

This is the one who was a suspected prostitute/drug user, right? And she was killed with a machete in a pretty brutal manner.

This was one of those segments that stuck with me.... *shiver*

I believe the murder took place in West Palm Beach county. RS mentioned how frustrating it was for law enforcement because they believe they knew who murdered her. I can't remember if they just couldn't find him or didn't have the evidence to arrest him. If they could locate the witness it would no doubt go a long way in identifying the killer and hopefully making an arrest.

Some of you guys might have better insight than I do, so maybe you can help me here. Things I totally don't get about the Rebecca Young case:

1. The suspect in the segment is depicted as a rather unkempt (and intoxicated) white male who had "told a prostitute he killed a black woman." According to Antonio's story, two Hispanic men--one possibly Cuban and the other possibly Mexican--had murdered Rebecca. How do the police figure this guy in? Do they think he physically murdered her, or did he have some other party carry it out? I understand it's just a re-enactment, but the man didn't exactly strike me as someone who typically ordered hits.

2. Why was Antonio not appealed to in Spanish? I think it could probably be safely assumed that his command of the English language wasn't fantastic as he called and reported in Spanish (although he would've had to know enough to understand the conversation between Rebecca and her killers, which is depicted as having been in English). Certainly if he were, by some chance, able to catch the segment, he'd recognize his own phone call to police, but what to do might not be apparent to him--especially if he hadn't really been aware of the show and its pretext, or didn't fully understand the instructions to call.

(Antonio did have a very distinct Cuban accent, and he seemed to use a lot of area-specific slang. I always have a hard time understanding all of his call. I can get the first couple of sentences very clearly, but when he starts on the license plate I get lost until he gets to they started to argue, the girl and him.)

Any thoughts on anything?

UM did run on spanish televison (Univision?) for a while, with episodes re-dubbed in Spanish.

I sincerely hope this episode was one of them.

Perhaps this episode was dubbed and they figured it would be redundant.

Are they sure that guy was white and not hispanic, too? Was it just from appearance or speech? Maybe he was just a lighter shade or more European descent than Indian descent?

Antonio was an idiot for waiting for a week to tell police what happened.

Snitching on violent drug dealers isn't the best way to ensure a prolonged and happy life.

I give Antonio credit for even calling in the first place.

Me too. It was evident in his voice how scared he was. I agree that it wasn't the best decision in the world to wait a week, sdb, but Antonio really did a lot more than a lot of people are willing to do. It might've taken weeks or months for someone to discover Rebecca if he hadn't eventually taken the initiative.

Antonio did have a gun, I wish he'd been able to shoot them, he might have saved her life. But he might have feared retaliation. What an ugly story. It makes me sad. Once that man beat her the first time, her life was in danger.

Or maybe years or maybe not even at all. The segment said that (i'm assuming because of the heat) she had past the stages of decomposition and was already beginning to mummify. It's possible with no witness, and animals carrying off bones she would have a been a missing person, never laid to rest, her family always wondering if she ran off or was harmed.

Sadly I probably would have done what Antonio did, hide in the cane field. It's very easy to say just shoot them but there are many variables to take into account. I certainly would have been able at least to help catch the guys that did this.

I agree with you. It's very easy to say, "Just do this or that" when you are watching the episode, but I imagined he was paralyzed with fear. So much so that he didn't even want to risk coming forward except for the message. I'm sure he feared that if anyone knew who he was, he'd face retaliation. But I wish he'd called back.

Pretty interesting how Robert Stack said at the beginning of the segment how this case was very frustrating for investigators because they knew who killed her but couldn't prove it. I wonder what they have or what they know that tells them who do it?
