The case of Anna Garcia first began on a hot, 92°F summer morning. A next door neighbor, Doug Greene, had decided to call police at 9:45 am to place his concern about Garcia because of her dog that had been barking all morning, which was highly unusual. Being that he had not seen or heard from her since the previous morning, he called her, then went over to her house to make sure nothing was wrong. Both the police and EMT arrived at 9:56 am.
