Sunday will mark the fifth year since Harold and Joni Tillman were seen alive at their La Cañada Flintridge home. Four days after a neighbor saw the Tillmans' Dodge Durango slip into their garage on Bramblewood Road the night of Feb. 6, 2000, detectives unearthed the couple's bodies near a wash in a nondescript area of Yucaipa.
