John Cabrera, right, the lead detective on the Dorothea Montalvo Puente case said he discovered one of the victims buried below his feet and several others in the yard as he gave a tour of the home she rented that has been remodeled and was part of the the Sacramento Old City Association's annual home tour on Sunday September 15, 2013 in Sacramento, Calif. A mannequin representing Puente is at right in the owner's yard. Puente was charged with nine murders but convicted of only three when she ran this as a boarding house.
