Missing Teen Found Strangled To Death In Park

February 4, 2013 at 8:57 pm by  

Genelle Conway AllenFairfield, CA — Slow news day today. Aside from that nut in the bunker getting himself dead, I couldn’t really find anything I felt like writing up. But I did find one story out of California that doesn’t seem to be getting covered by the major news outlets, and that’s the death of 13-year-old Genelle Conway Allen.

Genelle was in foster care and reported missing on Thursday after she didn’t return home from Green Valley Middle School. On Friday, her nude body was found lying face down  on a cement median in Allan Witt Park.

“I got closer and closer. And the closer I got to her, the more it became real. And then I got right up to her, and I realized that was a human body,” said Eric May who initially thought Genelle’s body was a mannequin. “I tried to wake her up. I did. Absolutely. Look, I got three layers of clothes on. I know how to survive the cold. I was ready to take my outer clothes off and give it to her.”

There aren’t a lot of details, but reports are that Genelle was strangled. Investigators stated they won’t announce whether the teen was sexually assaulted for another six weeks. Detectives currently have no suspects but are hoping surveillance cameras from a nearby business, as well as the surveillance cameras at the park’s entrances and exits, may have captured the person(s) responsible for Genelle’s death.

If you can believe a comment left on Instagram, one boy said that he got off the bus with Genelle the day she was reported missing.

Speaking of unsolved deaths of a 13-year-old girl, did you know they still have not found the person responsible for killing Jodi Parrack? She was the 13-year-old Michigan girl who didn’t come home and was found lying dead in the local cemetery back in 2007. Crazy.

  • That’s sad. It’s not even that fucked up for this site, but it is sad. On another note, the comments on instagram are pretty much 13 year old kids trying to get sympathy because they ‘saw her around’ or for other deaths they have experienced. Ah kids. Makes you realize how innocent this girl really was

    This sucks!! They really need to come up with some type of chip to insert in these Pedi bastards, so they can keep track of them all. (Not saying they did this, but it usually is)

  • OutOfBubbleGum

    “I know how to survive the cold. I was ready to take my outer clothes off and give it to her.”

    Through a warm hole into the past, seconds by seconds, hours-by-hours, days-by-days, months-by-months, years-by-years, centuries-by-centuries, millennia by millennia, time passed with the story that
    was thought to be more of a myth left only on floating colossal words. And, still, it felt to him like a
    galaxy so far, far away from where his great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great granddad found that girl.

    “HELL NO!! Not this time. Not another stain on MY family’s memory” Hans would to anything to save his buddy Luke in a place named Hoth.

  • Twisted1

    Such a pretty girl, that is so sad. Makes you want to lock up your kids and never let them out of your sight till they are thirty. I was born in Aurora (lived in N. Aurora a majority of my early childhood). I have not been there in 25-30 years. Back when it was still kinda a farm town. Still got family in the area but most of them have moved to other towns.

  • Sam

    Am i just hopelessly old-fashioned to think 13 is awfully young to be wearing make-up and have a nose ring?

  • Sam

    ” Investigators stated they won’t announce whether the teen was sexually assaulted for another six weeks.”
    Why else would she be naked? Poor girl. RIP Genelle.

  • Lisa Mallo

    Jodi was my son’s clsssmate, our community is still on edge from what happened. The police keep claiming they’re so close to solving it. From what I’ve heard, they believe the guy is still around.

  • Lisa Mallo

    Also, Jodi was only 11 at the time.

  • Lisa Mallo

    Jodi was my son’s classmate, she was only 11. The police still claim to be very close to solving it,and from what i’ve heard, they believe the guy is still around. It’s a tiny village with no crime, what happened to Jodi is still fresh here. I hope her family and our community eventually get closure.

  • Lisa Mallo

    Obviously i’m new to this, I tried to delete my comments because I made a better version, but it just made it from “guest”. Sorry for the extra posts.

  • Have there been any rumors at all in the town? It’s been five years and you would have thought that at least one person’s name would have floated to the top and into the news.

  • Lisa Mallo

    Oh sure, that’s what small towns are good at. Many rumors, but one of the most disturbing was about it possibly being a local officer who lived next door to me. I don’t believe it though, I think it only got people wondering because his wife left him and he moved and now works for a different police force. The police are extremely closed mouth about the case though (which I understand) they never even released that she was raped. We only know that because they worked over the local sex offenders list HARD. That, and her mom has said it online.

  • WTF- I found DD a couple months ago and my area northern california is all over this site, its a sure sign i gotta move!!

  • Oh, wow. I didn’t know she was raped.

  • brandi

    could be a form of getting rid of evidence, just in case his saliva, hair or even pet’s hair got on her clothes. but i’m like you, i believe she was raped.

  • I’ve come here for a few years now and am originally from sacramento, over the last 6 months Norcal has shown up more and more… I moved away and when I was back for Christmas I was disgusted with how ghetto Norcal has gotten…

  • daMonBrooks

    I know its not true, though I always feel like those in foster care grow up way to fast, and have it a little more rough then the average kid. I’m assuming she had been wearing make up for most of her young life.

    Agreed though, to me make up on children is an attempt to sexualize them, (this is coming from somoene who is a Male, and has no desire to have kids, so I may be completely out of touch)

  • midniteshadows

    Why is it that out of thousands of missing children, only a handful are ever found? I would think, as mobile and electronically plugged in as we are, that more children would be found; or at least the remains. Where do all these kids disappear too?

    I guess in this case, the only saving grace is that her body was found and might yield enough evidence to capture whoever did this her.

  • midniteshadows

    Nope. I don’t think that you are hopelessly old-fashioned to think 13 is too young to be wearing make-up. I was never allowed to wear make-up until I was 16, and then only for special occasions like dances etc. The reasons being that it bleaches out your natural skin color, that it makes you look older (translated into “sexually mature”), expensive, and last, but not least, “You’re a kid. Enjoy being a kid.” Oh! “If you’re going to wear make-up, learn how to apply it correctly”.

  • anonymous

    i know genelles sibilings and mother, one thing the media and only very few people can tell you about her unless they are close,is that her mom made mistakes but isnt a horrible person and she was doing everything in her power to bring the kids home,and genelle loved her mother very much and couldnt wait to come back and be in her care once again. she truly had something special about her,she sweet girl with a big personality

  • Buffettgirl

    No Sam, you aren’t. I had one tube of pale pink lipstick at 14. I wasn’t allowed anything else until I was either 16 or got myself a job to pay for it. Hell, I wasn’t allowed to wear black until I was 16! These days I hardly ever wear makeup, which probably why I get carded so much at 42. Damn I hope they find the bastard that did this before they strike again…

  • Wildheart

    Word of advice – don’t move to Florida.

  • daMonBrooks

    I hope your son is doing well

  • captaingrumpy

    I don’t think they will solve it. Not enough evidence from what I hear. They will have their suspicions though.

  • LeaveMeBe

    But it is true, Damon, although it’s not the time in foster care that makes them grow up so fast. It’s the shit they went through before ending up in care. 🙁

  • Will everyone just quit with your brainless comments please? This is a 13 year old child with or without body piercings & make-up a foster child that didn’t get to live to see the next sunrise. Troubled as new reports have considered this young teen was she didn’t deserve to be treated like garbage before & after she died. The killer is still out there. The tragic part is who knows if Genelle ever felt loved? All of us including kids we just take having a family a loving home some food for granted.

  • No one is perfect this young teen had so much of a bright future in store for her. What teen doesn’t act out it’s just part of growing up. May her mother not feel guilt sometimes it’s out of a parent’s control. Most of the times teens outgrow destructive behavior it’s the rites of becoming an adult. Just looking at Genelle’s innocent face this is the face of America’s teenage girl. Only cypher bullies who hide behind their keyboard of their computer make cruel comments.

  • Do the WHOLE world a favor. Don’t post. Are you that evil hiding behind your keyboard of a computer? This is a 13 year old child so as you gloat happy she’s dead some of us have a heart unlike Sam the tin woman. Who the “f” cares if she wore make-up or had piercings she died.

  • Maybe you’re reading a different article about make-up instead of a murder
    of a 13 year old girl. Try posting to a make-up site instead you act like this
    teenage girl is still alive. Show some respect then again thinking make-up
    bleaches your skin you’re like the duck upside down in the photo. Not normal!

  • Sam

    Ah yes, i see. It’s so obvious now that i re-read my comment:
    Am i’m just hoappyeleshe’sly old-fashioned to think 13 is awfully young to be wdeadring make-up and have a nose ring?
    What the fuck are you talking about woman? Where did i say i was happy she’s dead? I merely noted something that struck me as odd about the article. Something that to me signifies a girl who tries too hard and too early to be a woman and who possibly made some poor decisions about where and who to hang out with. As in a possibly instrumental detail to the story? If anything the fact that she tries to paint over the child that she is makes the story even more sad. But oh no, i guess you know better what everybody is thinking when they post their comments, right? Idiot. If you’re that oversensitive then maybe this is not the site for you.

  • Sam

    Kay… so you just had a go at me for saying something that you perceived to be not nice about somebody, and then you turn around and blatantly do what you just chastised me for? I guess a ‘thank you’ is in order for showing yourself off as the hypocrit you are.

  • Cops are probably staying quiet b/c they suspect some one specific already, or may have evidence pointing in one direction. I hope this case is being investigated thoroughly, and not over looked b/c she is a ward of the state.

  • The boy on instagram that put up Genelle’s pic seems to know that she was raped, bc he made a comment about it.

  • midniteshadows

    I’m sorry you got sucked into this. I do believe Mary was replying to me. But I like your response.

  • midniteshadows

    Oh my! What a fine example of “We dun ned no educashun” you are. If you had paid attention in school, especially critical writing and reading, you would not have inferred that I thought this girl was alive or showed any disrespect.

    Instead, you would have correctly inferred that I was merely making a comment on 1 sentence of Sam’s and it was a generalization of girls wearing make-up with an example related to me.

    Nor does it surprise me that the subtleties of an upside down duck are entirely lost on someone like you.

  • daMonBrooks

    you cray cray

  • Today’s generation doesn’t use make up to look older as ours did. They use it almost as a form of art. I have a teenaged daughter who expresses herself through color, including crazy shades of hair color as well. I support it and have never regretted it. Her hair isn’t blue because she’s looking for attention, her face isn’t pierced out of rebellion, it’s because she likes those things (as do I). But she’s a great kid, who doesn’t skip school, not a delinquent, doesn’t do drugs, isn’t out at all hours and we have an EXCELLENT line of communication…Just like her older brother and I did when he was her age. Looks/Covers should not be used as a possible explanation for why these horrible things happen to our youth!

  • AMEN!

  • I think the important thing to remember here is that Foster Care doesn’t always mean better care!

  • Sam

    I’m glad you have a good relationship with your daughter, but I disagree with your first and last sentence. Just because your kid doesn’t, doesn’t mean other kids aren’t using makeup to look older. And though looks and covers shouldn’t be used as a definite explanation, I think they should definitely be used as a possible explanation. It simply gives us an idea, a direction in which to search, whether our premise turns out to be right or wrong.

  • G.I.R.L.

    Are we reading same comments? You are running onto the football field with a basketball.

  • G.I.R.L.

    I knew following you was an excellent decision.

  • “The tragic part is who knows if Genelle ever felt loved?” Wow, and that isn’t brainless? Hurtful to her family who is mourning her death? to her foster family? Her friends? and you’re ragging other people for their comments?

  • Athena

    Actually, foster care is part of the problem, too. Did you know the sexual abuse rate in foster homes is four times that of other households?

    There are some great foster parents out there. I know a couple myself and hope to become one someday. But there is an unfortunately large percentage (although still the minority, keep in mind) that have no business having their own kids, much less caring for someone else’s damaged goods. Foster care can be exceptionally hard on a child, and some foster parents compound that damage.

  • Athena

    I don’t agree with children having facial piercings due to the permanence and potential health risks associated with it, but I was wearing makeup at 13. Did I wear it to look older? I don’t know, I was already 5’10” with a D-cup. I guess you could say I was just rounding out the look. But, much like Fatima’s daughter, I primarily did it as a way to accessorize artistically. I would dye my hair and match my makeup for holidays or with outfits. It was ultra bold and colorful. Nudes and natural tones didn’t exist to me at the time. 😛

    Now, of course that’s not to say, “It’s okay for any 13-year-old to wear makeup.” You have to be able to judge their level of maturity and their motivations, and make the best decision for your child. Thinking that no 13-year-old should wear makeup? Yeah, that’s a tad old-fashioned by my standards. But that’s okay. 🙂

  • Christina

    Why are u guy fixed on her wearing makeup who gives a fuck she was killed and her family is griefing. foster care or not girls who are 12 and older wear makeup that is just how society is now a days. But to sit here and talk about her like she is nobody you guys especially u sam are too old for that. Show some damn respect.

  • Christina

    People like u I cant stand u are too old to be talking about a girl who just got killed show some repect for her and her family and friends

  • Buffettgirl

    OMFG – I haven’t laughed that hard in a while!

  • Buffettgirl

    Like the respect you are showing? Why on earth are her family and friends on a site like DD at a time like this? Shouldn’t they be grieving and not really giving a crap what anyone that didn’t know this girl has to say? BTW – the word is spelled “you” not “u”. Now please go elsewhere and troll…

  • Sam

    Oh no, you mean we won’t be BFF’s? I’m utterly devastated, i’m sure.

  • Thismy$2

    Everyday something sinister happens to the youth or the elderly. What the hell is this world coming to? The day she disappeared she wasn’t wearing anything that would warrant her being found the way she was. Hope they find the sick so and so asap!!

  • LeaveMeBe

    I didn’t mean to make it sound like our foster care system wasn’t part of the issue. I agree that foster care compounds the problems in many cases. Too many of the foster parents are not prepared for the multitude of issues these children bring with them and those are the really good ones with their hearts in the right place. When you throw in the apathetic ones and the horrible ones…well, out of the frying pan and into the fire. 🙁

    Like you, I have known and still know some really great ones. They are super special people who I deeply admire. I hope you do become a foster parent someday. There will be some lucky kids that have you in their lives. 🙂

  • From fugitive.com 2/8/13: “Fairfield police have made an arrest in connection with the murder of 13-year-old Genelle Conway-Allen, of Suisun City, whose body was found Feb. 1 in Alan Witt Park in Fairfield. Police are holding a news conference at 11:30 a.m. at the Fairfield City Council chambers to provide further details about the case.”

  • midniteshadows

    Thanks for the update. I wonder if this was random or if the killer knew Genelle. I’d be interested in knowing how the police suspected Alan Park so early into the investigation.

  • amber

    Doesn’t matter if your in foster care or wearing make up or piercings. Thats not a reason to be murdered, nobody deserves that at any age. Focus more on the life that was took

  • whitrome

    “Wearing anything that would warrant….” I understand that your intention is to remind people that this was a beautiful, innocent young lady that was killed. But I’d like to caution you to remember that NO woman, young or old, dressed provocatively or wearing a burqa, does anything to bring violence on themselves. Victim-blaming is dangerous, even by inference from statements like yours. Her attire, had it been suggestive, would not make this situation any less tragic or un-deserved.
