A anonymous neighbor apparently overheard the aftermath of a stabbing that occurred in Rosemead Memorial weekend. He sent a letter to reporter Dan Abendschein, who passed the letter on to me:
I don’t know if these tips will help. I heard people
indistinctly talking and yelling for about 10 mins.
After that a woman was outside the backyard crying for
quite a while. A man was also at the back yard
telling the crying woman “he is dead.” About 5 mins
later the emergency crew came and I saw about several
police officers entering the back door, and I can hear
the man telling the officers “he is not breathing.”
Earlier that day about 11:30pm to about mid-night, I
got home and saw a hispanic man about 5ft 8-9in,
180-185 lbs walking north on Buron Ave. He was
wearing a t-shirt and jeans, sort of grey or white. I
didn’t get a clear look at his face. He was staring
at me while walking by. I thought he was suspicious;
however, he wasn’t in a hurry or anything. Also, it
was dark. I hope this will help.
Officials haven’t reported a break in the case — or the other weekend homicide, that of Frank Montes in Covina.
