After filming, Tiffani Thiessen who plays Jenny Monroe met the Avila family.

In the movie, Jenny Monroe is portrayed as an all American/Caucasian girl. Missy Avila was actually an all American/Hispanic girl.
The movie is a cleaner version of what had happened to Missy Avila. There was a book written shortly after the murder, however, according to Missy's family on their Facebook page, it isn't accurate. They are coming out with a documentary to tell the true events that took place.
In the movie, Jean asks Ellen to move out, however this did not happen in real life. Mrs. Avila never asked Karen Severson to move out and also let her stay in Missy's room and even wear her clothes.

If you look carefully, you'll notice Jenny sports a braid in her hair when she has it half-up. After her death, Ellen starts braiding her hair the same way Jenny did - hinting to her obsession.
When Ellen is packing her things at her house, the camera pans across the shrine she has of Jenny with newspaper clippings and pictures of her, Jenny and Carla while Jenny was alive. On one of the newspapers it reads : "Mission High girl found face down in-" This is a nod to Missy Avila, whose murder the movie is based on. She went to Mission High School.
In the movie, the murder is solved after about a year. In real life - it took 3 years.
When Ellen is walking around the hall, up to Jenny's room - a real picture of Tiffani Thiessen as a baby is visible on the wall behind her.
Jenny's grave reads "Jennifer Anne Monroe Beloved Daughter-Sister - Our Precious Jenny"
