Cold Case Homicide

    We need your help!

    The Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for your help in solving a cold case homicide.  It has been 18 years since the victim in this case went missing from the Prescott area.  

    On September 19, 2002, 60-year-old Arleen Cilione was celebrating her birthday not knowing it would be her last.

    That evening, Arleen stopped at Donna’s Hut bar, went to the American Legion in Prescott, and returned to Donna’s Hut which was located off of West Goodwin Street in the Park Plaza shopping center.  Arleen was seen in the company of two men in front of Donna’s hut bar in the parking lot. A van was also in the parking lot and may have been involved in her disappearance. Four months later Arleen’s decomposed body was found off White Spar Road south of Prescott. Evidence showed Arleen had been murdered.

    Witnesses recalled seeing 2 taxi cabs parked in the Park Plaza parking lot on Goodwin right around 9 pm. YCSO detectives have identified both cab drivers, thanks to the public’s help.

    Arleen was a 60-year-old white female who was 5 feet 2 inches tall weighing 110 pounds with brown hair and brown eyes.

    Anyone with information on the names of the men Cilione was speaking within the parking lot or on the van and its occupants is asked to contact Yavapai Silent Witness.

    If you provide any information that leads to an arrest in this case, you could earn a cash reward.  To provide information please call Yavapai Silent Witness at 1-800-932-3232 or submit a tip at  Remember all tips are anonymous.
