Sheriff's deputies and California Highway Patrol officers called to the vicinity of eastbound Interstate 8 and Tavern Road about 9:30 p.m. on Oct. 13, 2005, found Daniel Rodriguez lying on the roadside with a head wound, according to the San Diego County Sheriff's Department's Homicide Cold Case Team and Crime Stoppers.
