It's been 18 years and Kathleen Heisey's family and friends still cry out of for justice.

They say they aren't getting it from the Bakersfield Police Department, so they reached out to us. By the dozen. They wanted us to tell them what detectives wouldn't. They wanted us to make sure the case wasn't forgotten.

They want justice. They want to know: Who killed Kathleen Heisey?

Greg Laskowski

Greg Laskowski worked for the Kern County crime lab for 35 years and was one of the crime scene investigators who examined the crime scene after Kathleen was found in her Bakersfield home.

Laskowski says his job was only to gather evidence and not focus on suspects. However, he immediately felt the crime was very personal and done with a lot of pent up rage.

He says he had never witnessed a crime scene where the killer had purposely posed the body to such an extent as seen in the Heisey case.

After retiring from the Kern County crime lab, Laskowski went on to teach forensic science at Bakersfield College. He now owns Criminalistics Services International, a corporation that provides consulting services in a variety of areas of forensic science.
