"A bloodhound with floppy ears and enough skin to cover two dogs, Yogi had joined the K-9 Unit of the Aurora (Colorado Police Department in 1991. The Berrelez case gave him a chance to prove that he was blessed with “an incredible nose,” according to his handler, Officer Jerry Nichols."

"It was just a gut feeling on my part," said Dave Miller, chief of Englewood's police division, who remembered finding a homicide victim in the same

"Alie suffered from asthma and needed medication four times a day.  She had been at Swedish Hospital in Denver for treatment two weeks before she was abducted.  She was so fond of a stuff rabbit that would glow in the dark, which she had at the hospital ."  

Marivel Berrelez, Alie's mom.   




"A spunky five-year-old, she had dimples when she laughed and soft doe like eyes that sparkled below a ragged fringe of coffee-colored hair. She loved to fly kites, to dance to Little Richard songs, and to watch The Little Mermaid on television. Alie giggled her way into the hearts of her neighbors and had just shared a pizza with one of them when she disappeared."
