DAVID OLYNE, 22
David Olyne was bound with wire and then beaten, kicked, stomped on and set on fire in Ceres in March 2014. A man has been found guilty of the murder but his sentencing has been repeatedly postponed. Activists believe that others were involved in the killing and have gotten away with murder.
