Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

One of the longtime mysteries at Fullerton College was the whereabouts of student Lynsie Ekelund. The popular 20-year-old student disappeared from her quiet Placentia neighborhood in the early morning hours of February 17, 2001. In October 27, 2010, Christopher Michael McAmis, long considered a suspect, was arrested for killing Ekelund during an attempted rape in his Whittier apartment, then burying her body in a remote area of Santa Clarita. McAmis eventually pled guilty and was sentenced to 15 years to life. A memorial service was held for Ekelund on December 23, 2010. (Photo courtesy of Nancy Ekelund,Torch Spring 2009.)
