Jessica Martinez, 4, was kidnapped and killed in May 1990. The little girl disappeared while playing in front of her southwest Bakersfield apartment. Her body was found 11 days later, buried in a cotton field on Bear Mountain Boulevard.

The child's murder remains unsolved, 23 years later. Now, one investigator believes Bakersfield police are overlooking a key suspect.
