Alvarado said the city was investigating that operation and the case involving Gentry. Neither was charged with a crime.
In December 2004, the department received a subpoena from the U.S. Treasury Department for the personnel files of 31 officers regarding their moonlighting at a strip club, officials said.
Graves, a former police chief, said of the department, "It's just totally ridiculous.... My detectives worked. The department worked. It's just totally nothing now -- absolutely nothing."
Nothing is the response several victims' families say they get from the department.
Willie Guy has gotten nowhere with police regarding the June shooting death of his grandson Vincent Guy, 17.
"They won't tell you nothing," Guy said. "The run-around, that's exactly what I got."
Dart's family and friends say the department ignored them. Her neighbors say investigators disappeared a day or so after the body was removed.
Val Pampel, who lives across from the Dart home, said he "was hoping for some quick justice.... How hard were they looking? I don't know."
Pampel and others remarked on Dart's civility and vibrant attitude. She spoke several languages fluently and continued to learn in later years, taking painting classes and practicing the piano.
"When she died, it was quite a shock," said the Rev. Sidney Mauldin, her pastor. "We know her life came to an end by someone who neither valued life nor knew the excitement of life."
The pastor and family want to know who that someone is.
