There is no doubt that this case would have layed dormant at the LACSD. Who was advocating to investigate further? No one except Marti Rulli. Dennis was very brave to tell the truth and expose himself to all of the abuse and skepticism that came his way. However, it was Marti Rulli who was the driving force behind the reopening. She collected the experts, she put the proper documents together, she beat the drum for this cause when Natalie's own sister was reluctant to stir up the hornet's nest. It is her determination that saw a reopening few believed would ever happen. People can question her motives all they want but they can't take that accomplishment away from her.
