Mom follows “Three Billboards” inspiration


A California mother is using inspiration from Hollywood in her quest to find her daughter’s killer.

 Three billboards strategically line the desert road near California City, California, sending a message of frustration and sorrow from the loved ones of 23-year-old Deverrie Schiller. 

 They read “Busting grow houses is good”, “Busting killers is better”, “Deverrie Schiller, 10-92/06-16 murder unsolved.”

 The signs are very much like those in the Oscar-winning film “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri.”

 The film centers around a mother’s anguish trying to catch her daughter’s killer-and stopping at nothing to keep the case in the public eye, even if it means going head-to-head with law enforcement.

 That character is notably similar to Debi Fones, the mother who has brought her own three billboards outside of California City. 

 It’s been nearly two years since 23-year-old Deverrie Schiller was strangled to death in the park just across the street from the home she shared with her mother.
