The lead detective John Cabrera in the Dorothea Montalvo Puente case shows pictures of her from left to right dated 1982, when she was arrested, 1985, when she was released on parole, and 1988, when he took her down to police headquarters, during the Sacramento Old City Association's annual home tour on Sunday September 15, 2013 in Sacramento, Calif. He was viewing the home for the first time since when the murders took place. Puente was charged with nine murders but convicted of only three when she ran this as a boarding house.
