    Raped and murdered when she was on her way home from a Seattle pub (1993)
    Since she didn't have a license, she took taxi cabs a lot and knew the drivers, which was an original scenario of how she was murdered.
    She sometimes wrote songs with political and feminist ideas.
    Her suspected killer was arrested after evidence shown that the killer was in the area at the time of the killing (2003).
    She was one of the first female rockers in the grunge scene.
    Her murder helped inspire 'Home Alone,' an organization that offers self-defense classes and public education.
    Bands including Nirvana and Joan Jett performed benefit concerts to raise money to find information on the murder.
    She influenced a lot of female-fronted punk bands today, including The Distillers.
    7 Year Bitch wrote a tribute album called 'Viva Zapata,' which featured a painting of her on the cover.
