This is insanity in this town. So sorry for this man, his family and friends and praying for no more deaths, assaults, murders. WTH is up with people where this is acceptable or even thought about.??

But lets continue to elect officials that coddle illegals and refuse to get involved with voting on the issues that have enabled Government to cater to special interests that have turned the local area and State, in-general, into a hood.

@Cik Bast, this could have been a conflict between two, legal residents.

Sorry you had to see it Melissa, someone dead or dying is something that will stick with you forever :/ I guess we wait to find out why a man would be gunned down in otherwise peaceful Temecula?

Really a gunshot sound travels for so long its nearly impossible to target where it comes from unless a victim shows up outside screaming from an injury. We all hear them, but not much police can do about it.

Flag as Inappropriate is much easier then trying to reason with these "saying it sweetly" troublemakers. Once 3 people have hit it 3x the post is suppose to go away.

According to the article, this happened in the city of Winchester, just south of the 74, not Temecula. Hopefully they update it with more info later so we can find out what happened.

Yes it happened in winchester, & its a very very small town so to live just streets away from were a man body laid in the rd for 12 hrs was a little difficult!
Brenda September 04, 2012 at 07:35 AM
As do I Crash. Like was it a random drive by in Winchester/Temecula? We already are having random stabbings, robberies, burlaries, women jumped from behind on bikes, etc. etc. and if this is random drive by stuff, hell we are going to have to buildan armory around us. If anything I hope it was a problem between one man and another, but still.........................AWFUL to murder someone in cold blood. Winchester is small and often times just gets added into Temecula ;)

I can understand that seeing this man in the rd for 12 hours was hard, I hope you know why that was. The only way homocide dedectives can make a case is collect evidence. I am a survivor of someone in my family who was murdered. I understand the process now, it is better for the family of the person murdered to get a guilty rather than a plea or found not guilty because of rottent police work.

I live on the Asbury and it was very upsetting they didn't even cover the body. Kids live on my street. It is sad. It is hard to feel safe on my own street.
Brenda September 05, 2012 at 09:42 PM
V, I seriously find it difficult to believe that they did not cover up that body for the entire 12 hours. That means they did not remove the "uncovered" body until after 12noon meaning it was sitting in at least 100 degree weather for an hour or so, and 12 hours in the elements where other trace evidence can attach itself to the body and give false evidence. A body is NEVER left uncovered, NEVER.
Brenda September 05, 2012 at 09:48 PM
Sorry but I have to go over this with a bit more information V. A blanket is placed under the body and wrapped up over the top the entire time, this way trace evidence on the body cannot fall off the body onto the ground and its lost. (However the ground under body is vacuumed after body is picked up to preserve anything that might have already fallen off.) Then when the body is taken in for the autopsy and further evidence gathering, everything on the blanket that was under and then over the body is either lit up for particals, vacuumed also, taped, or put in plastic in case its needed later. Prior to that a yellow tarp is used to cover the body. If you are saying, here in print, that body was uncovered for 12 hours you are making an awful bold statement that could impact this case seriously.

Thats correct! The body of Glen seriously laid on the asphault until a little after 12 pm sunday! no joke...UNCOVERED! which is why it was alittle much to see!
Brenda September 16, 2012 at 12:48 AM
I am over appalled as that is totally against the Rules of Evidence. Not sure what the rules of the police are if they are required to cover a body or not, but I have NEVER seen a body left uncovered especially for that long. Once they are pronounced DOA they are covered up for arrival of coroner as even the police do not want to look at a dead body. For those of you out there and saw it I would definately be calling to complain and GET ANSWERS.
