A man by the name of Barry Vinick was killed in his vehicle on Antelope Road in Citrus Heights sometime in the late 1990s, I believe. Was his killer ever found?

Barry Allan Vinick was found shot to death behind the wheel of an idling car in a parking lot on Antelope Road near Interstate 80 in August 1994.
Sacramento County sheriff’s officials said Vinick, 39, of Roseville had been shot once in the back of the head with a shotgun. His body was discovered about 3:45 a.m. in a late-model teal-green Camaro. Sheriff’s officials said he probably had not been dead for more than a half-hour when found.
Little information was available at the time of the shooting, and there are no reports in The Bee’s archives of any arrests in the case.
