David Santiago. (Silent Witness)

David Santiago, 22, was violently killed at the kind of party you should do your best to keep your teens away from: a rave.

"Basically a rave party is an illegal event with a lot of kids, a lot of underage drinking and a lot drugs," said Phoenix Police Sgt. Darren Burch.

This rave was on Saturday, Nov. 24, 2012 at a warehouse near McDowell and 23rd Ave. It lasted into the wee morning hours of Sunday. Just after 1:00 a.m., David walked outside.

"He was attacked by two people," said Birch, "One hit him in the face. David fell to the ground and the other person began stomping on his head causing such severe trauma that, about 10 days later, David died of his injuries."

Somebody had to have seen something because there may have been as many as 1,000 people at this rave. That's 1,000 possible witnesses that may be able tell police why someone would want to hurt David or provide descriptions of the suspects.

Sgt. Burch said it's a really cold case.

"It was so long ago that now detectives have labeled it a homicide," he said.

On July 27, 1988, Myron Traylor and his mom were walking in the area of 16th St. and Southern. Myron asked his mom if he could run into a restaurant and get a drink. She gave him permission and continued walking. Myron was never seen again. Investigators didn't believe Myron ran away.

"By all accounts, Myron was a good kid," Burch said. "He just got a paper route and was saving money for a trip to Disneyland with his church group."
