June 16–The Season 2 premiere of the “Murder Among Friends” television show will focus on the 2010 murder of Santa Maria teen Dystiny Myers. It is scheduled to air at 9 p.m. Thursday.
The 42-minute episode, titled “Date with Dystiny,” can be viewed on the Investigation Discovery channel.
The online description for the episode reads: “When firefighters extinguish a California brush fire, they unexpectedly ignite a twisted murder mystery — rife with forced prostitution, burning jealousy, and an almost unthinkable murder mastermind.”
The murder of the 15-year-old girl and the trial that followed, which involved five defendants, were closely watched within San Luis Obispo County.
Myers, after running away from a group home in 2010, wound up at the Nipomo residence of Rhonda Wisto, a methamphetamine dealer with gang connections. In September 2010, Wisto ordered Myers’ murder, saying the girl had disrespected Wisto. Three defendants — Ty Hill, Cody Miller and Jason Greenwell — later pleaded guilty to murder. Wisto and her son, Jacob York, maintained their innocence and took their case to a jury. All were convicted.
