  1. I remember this very well ! Dawn Driscoll went to Valhalla at the same time I did. In the 1977 Ragnarok yearbook, there is a large photo of Dawn in the middle of page 113. Dawn’s younger brother went to school with one of my brothers at Emerald Jr. High.
    Susan Driscoll was released in 1982 (at age 41) from Patton State Hospital in San Bernadino. She’d be around 75 or so now. Wonder what happened to her. She did have a degree of some sort in criminal psychology…go figure.

    1. I was one of Dawn’s closest friends in high school (at Valhalla) and was devastated by her death. Our group of friends went out the night before she was murdered (a football game I think). We had plans to go to the beach the next day but Dawn’s mom said she was away and couldn’t go. Later, we knew that was a lie. We sat together in geometry and when she wasn’t at school and didn’t answer her phone we all wondered what was wrong, but never imagined she was gone. It was a life changing tragedy for all of her friends. I think of her often. All of us gave her and her brother our own memorial service at her gravesite. I had written a poem that I read there, we also read a poem Dawn had recently written. It was hard for us to function and understand such a loss at only 16. I’m so sorry for your loss. I was shocked her mother was released. I knew her mom, she wasn’t a warm person, but Dawn spoke very lovingly of her.

      1. I would give anything to hear from you. Please 561-305-5353. Dawn’s sister Teresa Dulong. We had the same father. My father and Susan went to the same high school got married and had my sister. They got a divorce and she was adopted out by Susan s husband.

  2. My father was Jon Brent Dulong and he was my sister’s biological father. He gave up his rights to Driscol! I’m disgusted in the fact that he must have known Susan’s instability! My father gave up his rights in the 60’s thinking she would be taken care of and safe@
