Lies and cover-up by the very people sworn to serve and protect Clark County schools.
Contact 13 has it in black and white.
Clark County School District and Police Department employees detailing a cover-up after a boozy bash and a deadly DUI crash.
The pictures are horrific. The outcome, even more so.
"She was murdered!" cried Linda Peterson.
On his forearm, Frank Peterson chronicles the days... "2,356..." since he and his wife lost their only child. -- 24-year-old UNLV honor student Angela Peterson, who was crushed to death in 2009 when 18-year-old Kevin Miranda ran a red light at Flamingo Road and Rainbow Boulevard. He was sentenced to 16 years in prison.

The funeral director made the Petersons wait to see their daughter's body.
"He says you can't," Linda recalls. "We have to reconstruct her face!"
Miranda was driving drunk. He's in prison now, but the Petersons say justice is far from done. Frank said there needs responsibility and accountability.
"Criminal charges! As far as I'm concerned, isn't it against state law to serve alcohol to minors?" Linda said.
WATCH AS THE PETERSONS FILED A LAWSUIT AGAINST THE DISTRICT.
Before he got behind the wheel, court records show Kevin Miranda was at a party at the home of a school police dispatcher.
At the party, minors mingled, drank and even played beer pong with multiple school police officers and dispatchers.
Court records show some of the party attendees included host and dispatcher Rebecca Wamsley, Sgt. Brian Nebeker, dispatcher Tina Zuniga, Officer Mark Robbins, dispatcher Cynthia Ruelas, Dispatch Supervisor Armando Quintanilla and Sgt. Roberto Morales.
"Supposed to be protecting our children, not drinking with them!" said Linda Peterson.
Miranda left the party that night with his girlfriend -- the daughter of school police dispatcher Tina Zuniga.
Contact 13 obtained jailhouse recordings from the Petersons' lawyer where the two discuss what Miranda told a news reporter.
"I did what you asked me. You told me don't tell them anyone frickin' gave you alcohol, which no one did, okay, I told them that," Miranda said. "What else do you guys want from me? Seriously! I'm already f---ing rotting in here!"
That was toward the beginning of what would become an extensive cover-up orchestrated by the school district police department.
"This was from the top down," said Marc Cook, the Peterson family's attorney
Cook released settlement documents signed by dispatcher Cynthia Ruelas, Officer Mark Robbins and dispatcher Tina Zuniga, who was questioned about the beer pong during a videotaped civil deposition.
Marc Cook: Do you recall playing beer pong with Kevin?
Tina: Not with Kevin, no.
Marc: Who did you play beer pong with?
Tina: I believe it was Cynthia, Mark and Johnny, possibly, I don't remember exactly.
Kevin Miranda remembered.
In a second jailhouse recording where he's talking to Zuniga's daughter about what he told a news reporter.
Marissa Zuniga: Did you tell her you didn't drink with anybody?
Kevin Miranda: Yeah, I mean besides the beer pong, yeah.
Marissa: What about beer pong?
Kevin: What about beer pong what?
Marissa: What'd they ask you about that?
Kevin: Well they just said if I played with any adults.
Marissa: Did you?
Marissa: You told them that?
Kevin: Yeah, 'cause they have a picture of it.
Marissa: Well, my mom's gonna go to jail now.
Marissa: Now my mom's gonna f---ing go to jail now.
Kevin: For what?
Marissa: For playing with you... Oh my god!
Tina Zuniga did not go to jail. Neither did anyone else besides Miranda himself. We ask is he the only guilty party.
"No," Cook said. "There's been several crimes committed here. He's just the only one that they ever did anything about."
No one else was ever even charged with a crime.
"But it was covered up. They're good at that. Very good at that," said former school police dispatcher Dan Deresotes.
In speaking to Contact 13, Deresotes is breaking his silence for the first time.
"I'm not saying that these are bad people, but what they did was terrible... was inexcusable."
As for the school district, no one would talk about this case on camera because they say the party was not a district event.
