In a story about the young actress who was brutally murdered outside her home, the L.A. Times provided this information about the 'Judging Amy' character played by Tara Correa-McMullen:

She played a troubled and remorseless teenager, Graciela Reyes, who had been abandoned by her mother and two brothers who had fled to Guatemala. Judge Amy, played by Amy Brenneman, tries to turn Graciela's life around, but the teen gets involved in a drive-by shooting. Judge Amy attempts to prevent Graciela from being tried as an adult. She fails, but almost succeeds in getting her a new trial when Graciela is murdered in prison.

So there never was a chance for the character to ever return, should 'Judging Amy' have been revived in a sequel or reunion movie. And so Toobworld Central can safely claim that Graciela Reyes was kin to Hugo Reyes of 'Lost', and thus was a victim of the Numbers Curse.

It's just a shame that it's Ms. Correa-McMullen's death that protects that claim, and not the fancies of the script-writers.
