Updates

Yesterday I created a mirror site, in case of problems during our move to larger and better servers. It requires posting to both sites and hoping there’s some kind of synchronization. I must admit I haven’t done a complete job of it.

There are posts on the mirror site that aren’t here and vice versa.

Here’s a link to the mirror site.

As for the missing posts from this site, there are two. The first is titled “Girl pleads guilty to manslaughter, evading and street racing.”

Here’s an outtake:

A 17-year-old girl pled guilty Monday to several charges stemming from a collision that killed Angela Chung, 19, of Temple City.
Here’s an excerpt from Dan Abendschein’s online piece:

PASADENA – A 17-year-old girl pleaded guilty on Monday to four felony counts in a street racing case that killed a 19-year-old student from Temple City.
The girl, whose name was not released because of her age, was convicted in juvenile court. She will serve three months in a county probation department camp, and will have to pay restitution to the victim’s family.

The second is a follow to the El Monte Homicide from the weekend. Again an excerpt:

The victim lived in a trailer (not apparently visible on Google Earth). Left no fingerprint of his existence as far as public records and was apparently arrested three times in recent months by El Monte and Baldwin Park police, according to the Los Angeles County’s Sheriff’s Inmate Locator.

The guy also has a lengthy rap sheet for drug possession, car thievery and spousal abuse. Motive anyone?

Here’s our story for (Tuesday’s) paper:

EL MONTE Detectives are continuing to investigate the death of a 33-year-old man found shot inside a trailer late Saturday.

Jack Edward Hicks body was discovered shortly before midnight in the 5200 block of Cogswell Road, said Los Angeles County sheriffs Deputy Denise Fuchs.

The body was found inside a trailer next to a back house where Hicks had been staying, said Detective Gil Carrillo of the Sheriffs Homicide Bureau.
