Graham used to date Angela's mother and was their neighbor. He also had a history of sexual offenses against children. In 2003, he was convicted and sentenced to death. In 2009, he commited suicide in his jail cell.
Curtis Dean Anderson was later identified as Amber's killer, but he died before he could be charged. However, Nikki, Ilene, and Michaela's cases remain unsolved. In 2009, Jaycee Dugard was found alive where Angela had been killed in the city where she lived.
