  8. If this is who I am thinking this is, was he not a widower? Since no names have been given and I am aware of people who worked with/for him, and have thought him to be a man named Glen. If so, at one point in time there were some drugs. I am told this, but since I am a resident of Menifee and I know drugs are very heavy in this area, that is always a possibility. That does not take away from the good he has done

  9. The female was seeing this person behind her husbands back. Why would she put herself in that position?

  10. Seems we may all know each other, circles don't run too deep. To the person that lives 3 doors down from where it happened and knows the crime scene as the sketchiest house on the street,you got it all wrong. No husband and wife there and what goes on at your house is no picnic!
