Our Brian Charles is on top of the Brandon Jackson story, the Muir football player who was fatally shot and killed after attending a party in Altadena back in February.

Brian Charles writes on his blog, Notes from Northwest Pasadena:

Standing alongside Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca, the aunt of slain John Muir High School football player and student Brandon Jackson gave a tearful admonition to her nephew’s killers Wednesday.

“Every day you look in the rear-view mirror, I hope you can see an image of Brandon there left to die,” said Cynthia Brown. Brown joined Baca, Capt. Steve McLean of the sheriff’s Altadena Station and members of the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau gathered at Sheriff’s headquarters to announce a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest in the Jackson killing.”
