Blurred through the years is the real Dana. She lives on, though -- beautiful, shy, kind -- in the memories of those who knew her.

The innocent. The indicted. Who's who in the Dana Ireland tragedy.
Anatomy of a murder. The what and where of the attack.
Help came too late for Dana Ireland. From the moment she was hit by her attackers' car until the time an ambulance reached her, more than two hours passed. Here's how minutes -- and a life -- were lost.

Life has gone on since the Dec. 24, 1991, attack. Memories have faded. Witnesses have scattered. But each twist and turn in the seven-year bid to bring to justice those responsible means fresh injury, not only to Dana's family but to witnesses whose lives have been put on hold by this on-again, off-again case.
