The Disappearance of Pearl Pinson
May 26, 2016 was a normal morning for 15 year old, Pearl Pinson, as she left home in Vallejo, California around 7am to walk to school. However, that would be the last time her family would see her.
Not far from her home, witnesses saw a Hispanic male with a gun dragging a bloody Pearl across the overpass on Interstate 780 near Taylor Avenue. Witnesses called 911 and reported hearing a gunshot as she was dragged to the 1997 gold Saturn. A witness was able to identify her abductor as 19 year old Fernando Castro. However, by the time police arrived, all that was left on the overpass was a spot of blood and Pearl's cell phone.
Pearl Pinson was a happy girl with dreams of becoming a veterinarian or firefighter. She is described as fiesty, having a big heart, and smart. Unfortunately, as far as we know these are still only dreams.
