Yvonne Coleman, 15
Died Jan. 22, 1986
Yvonne Coleman, 15, was found strangled in Imperial Park near 118th Street and Yukon Avenue in Inglewood on Jan. 22, 1986.
Coleman was a student at Morningside High School in Inglewood. She was on her way home when she was killed.
In 2008, a cold-hit DNA link tied Coleman’s homicide, as well as the killings of three other women, to Michael Hughes. A decade earlier, Hughes had been convicted of first-degree homicide in the deaths of four women in the South L.A. area.
