Dianna D'Aiello is on the phone. She sounds exhausted. She's been up since 6 o'clock Thursday morning. "I tossed and turned all night," she says. That was before she, her mother and an aunt drove together to the Orange County Superior Court building in Santa Ana, where D'Aiello took a seat in Department 40 and spoke of the man who raped her, beat her into a coma and killed her unborn daughter. Or of the men who did. "Why do you think Kevin wasn't there today?"

The echoes ring with a haunting similarity: A 21-year-old Cypress man with everything to live for who grew so troubled when he broke up with his girlfriend that he committed himself to a psychiatric hospital. A 33-year-old Anaheim man who could not cope when his girlfriend told him goodby. A 41-year-old Huntington Beach man, despondent over recent split with his girlfriend.

Curtis Maddox recalls the four meaty arms jerking out of a passing car in Hitler-style salutes. Lance Lee, a salesclerk at Beachcomber's Surf Shop, tells of the man who came in the other day to sell his surfboard. "It had swastikas all over it," Lee said. "We bought it, but we had to paint them over."
