In the 1970s, disco-themed skating rinks were all the rage. In the '80s it was paintball battlefields, followed in the '90s by urban skateboard parks. And now comes the zip line - an elevated cable ride that zips harnessed riders downhill at high speeds, powered only by gravity. Across the nation, these rides stretch over canyons, vineyards, island tourist towns and even zoos. Since 2001, the number of zip lines built in the U.S. has soared from 10 to more than 200, according to zip line experts.

When it came to security, Lance E. Thomas left nothing to chance. Wherever he maneuvered near the glass display counter of his West Los Angeles watch renovation shop, there was a gun within reach. Merchants who visited Thomas regularly at his shop, the Watch Company, would watch in awe as he removed the weapons from their hiding spots--a .357 magnum handgun, a Smith & Wesson .38, a shotgun and other guns.

But now they believe the woman's death was the result of what they describe as one of the more bizarre murder cases to hit the upscale Pacific Palisades in some time.

Tracey Campbell and Shari Miller led very different lives. Campbell, a 15-year-old student, had recently moved to Los Angeles from Missoula, Mont., and lived quietly with four other family members in a one-room apartment, scarcely venturing outside her Westside neighborhood. Miller, six years older than Campbell, apparently lived out of her car and performed odd jobs when she could find them. She had a large circle of acquaintances and hung out at a bar known as the Meet Market.
