Cook and friend beat 10-year-old and strangled her to death in an Avila campsite to prevent her from testifying in 1979.

The Board of Parole Hearings denied the request of Randy Cook, now 55, to be released on parole from his life sentence in state prison for kidnapping and killing ten-year-old Tami Carpenter in Avila Beach in July of 1979.

In July 1979, ten-year-old Tami Carpenter was expected to testify against William Record in a child molestation case. At Record’s preliminary hearing in April 1979, Tami told the court the defendant had molested her twice — once at Burnardo’z Ice Cream Plant in Arroyo Grande and once after swimming at Avila Hot Springs.
