The parents of slain UCLA student Ronald Steven Baker said Friday that their son often visited the Chatsworth railroad tunnel that police claim had recently become a center of occult activity. Baker, 21, was found stabbed to death in the tunnel last month and police are investigating possible links between his murder and occult activities. "He and his friends had gone into that tunnel before," said Gaylon Baker, the young man's father.

A prison inmate pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he killed his roommate in a Chatsworth railroad tunnel in 1990, a slaying that investigators thought at the time might have been part of an occult ritual. Ronald Steven Baker, then a 21-year-old astrophysics major at UCLA with an interest in the occult, was found dead with his throat slashed and several stab wounds at the entrance of the tunnel on June 22, 1990.

Ronald Steven Baker, the UCLA student whose slaying is being investigated as possibly related to his study of the occult, had often gone to the Chatsworth railroad tunnel where he was found stabbed to death last month, his parents said Friday. While in high school, Baker, 21, and his friends often explored the tunnel, which runs through the rocky hills above Chatsworth Park. And Baker had told his parents last spring that he continued to go there occasionally.

Out of the hundreds of murders and other violent crimes in Los Angeles this year, state, county and local officials sponsored only 17 rewards for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the criminals. One case that received a reward was the slaying of 14-year-old Angela Migliore in Lancaster, whose body was found strangled near a road in October. Within a month after the crime, state and local governments had offered rewards in the case totaling $60,000.
