25-year-old John Rainwater and 22-year-old Lori Rainwater were a young married couple just starting out. The couple had a 15-month-old daughter at home and Lori had just got home from the hospital after delivering her son, who was just seven days old. The couple lived in Atascadero, CA and by all accounts were a loving family with lots of friends. John and Lisa were Christians who managed an apartment complex at 8750 El Camino Real located in Atascadero, a city with a population today of 29,000 and located in San Luis Obispo County. They were working hard to get their lives going and were excited about the future. The couple had a lifetime to look forward to, but one man changed all that on a chilly February morning in 1987.
