  1. my brother was murdered Jan 17rh in the middle of the night or early in the morning. Last seen driving back to his hideout where he was staying awaiting an experimental surgery for his neck injury he got years ago. He was so afraid and tried to get the cops to offer up some kind of watch list. Then he turned in some drug dealers dealing in front of his apartments, little did he know that the folks dealing were Asians part of some kind of gang of thugs who told him that they had a hit out for him due to his turning in these dealers. He filmed this character who came at him with is video camera aimed at my brother who was filming this guy coming towards at him… He begged the guy who was slamming my brothers head on the side that it would kill him due to the seriousness of his neck injury. The VA broke a drill bit off and left it in his neck area affecting all c levels of the neck spine. He was found in the same area of where the young WHITE WOMAN young and will more than likely try to find her killers using the media. They could not find his Jeep Wrangler until a few months later when the back chassy washed up on a sandy beach some 5 miles where he was located by site seers. He had no water in his lungs so he was dead when he hit the water. Naked with not any form of ID but that silver neck plate holding his head on, and the bank statements in his cabin where his neighbor of less than a month said he was drinking vodka and screaming cussing God well, Jan 15 was my little bro’s birthday and Dennis always got really upset on that day. He was the driver who killed my little brother. Dennis was never the same.. But he was a successful person and would share his last dollar with a person if they were hungry or even if they needed a drink. He was not an alcoholic, yet his blood Alcohol level was 3.12 % and he was overdosed on his Methadone meds for his severe pain ..He was dead man walking. I do not get any information from the cops at all. If not for Damon and his story for it changed and changed again. I owned a bar and let me tell you this, at the level of drink in his system he would have fallen down a dozen or more times and would have marks all over from the sharp lava rock. The waters were full of the Tiger Sharks, I am sure the killers thought he would have been eaten before anyone saw him. ah but no that did not happen. Dennis posted the film of him getting beat up and said if I end up dead some one in the houses I have filmed did it to me. He was going to come home due to him not able to live alone and needed care giving. But no he was called by the cops an OCEAN FLOATER and they get about one a day; no big deal.. don’t worry we aren’t!
    So stuck here in the middle of the USA….I could not go to Hawaii for $$ reasons. Or I would have been there and found my brother’s killer.
    I Love his friend Fred H. who is keeping me informed but if not for him I would know nothing about the price of eggs.
    I am sure the cops will break their backs looking for this golden hair beauty for that is the way that Liberal media works… well off to do laundry
    have a great day and weekend

    THE END or -30-
