A year ago this week, Rosemont was thrust into the international spotlight with the death of a 13-year-old Albert Einstein Middle School student.
On March 6 of last year, Rosemont residents woke to news that a body had been found in a little league dugout at Rosemont Community Park.
It was later determined the girl, Jessica Funk-Haslam, had been beaten, stabbed and asphyxiated. She was remembered as friendly with a quirky style.
Authorities and the community pleaded for anyone with information to come forward; a massive community meeting was held, surveillance video was released .
Still, the Sacramento County Sheriff's Department was unable to identify any suspects. That's still the case, as detectives aren't pursuing any active leads, department spokesman Sgt. Jason Ramos said last week.
Last year, this publication wondered what legacy Jessica's death would have on Rosemont. And while TV cameras and national news coverage of her homicide have faded, neighborhood volunteers continue to step up their efforts to keep the area safe.
Recent posts on a Facebook group for Rosemont Neighborhood Watch call for volunteers to join a park-watch group, and efforts to clean up graffiti and work with the area's Problem-Oriented Policing officer continue.
