It is now thursday and they don't know how he died? If it is a bullet, or not, can we know that? Let's hide ALL THE CRIME.

Allentown Police Capt. Daniel Warg said,''It doesn't appear suspicious, but we are investigating.''

What does that mean???

Did the 28 year-old die of natural causes???

Was it a case of extreme stupidity???
{froze to death while sleeping in car or drug overdose}

Is is the Dumpster Killer back in town???
{body found burning in an AllenSwamp dumpster was NOT ruled a homicide yet}

With The Monkey Call less is is more when it comes to info.

You people worry so much about a dead body. If you think you can hurry this along, then go get a degree and help out. Other than that take up a different hobby instead of being so freakin nosey. You sound like gossiping neighbors, and I hate the gossipy neighbors. Read the paper and flip the page there is other news to be concerned about other than a dead body.

I have a police scanner and you would be shocked at all the crime not in The MC. They are very careful what they put in. This is a scant report and it wouldn't be in the paper at all but for the dead body they have to explain.

Sounds like you should either learn spanish or get a new job. After all, it sounds like "dealing with spanish" is part of your job and those "spanish" are some of your customers. Speaking another language creates new opportunites and can advance your pay.

Hey remember when an AllenSwamp criminal supposedly "found" a dead guy in his pick-up truck in this same parking lot {if I remember correctly} and then he moved the body to the passenger side and drove around all day with the dead guy.

That sure was a fun story.

Anyway, dead bodies found in vehicles in AllenSwamp? No biggie!

I live about a quarter mile from here and I agree with earlier comments specifically regarding the "Price Rite," the shopping center seems to be held back by this old dump... the new gym is beautiful and the Chinese Buffet just renovated their facility... talking to the nice ladies at the hair dressers (end of the strip) it sounds like many of the other shops are also planning renovations, and the vacant stores will be replaced with some nicer shops. The K-Mart isn't bad but why can't they put a reputable grocery store in? They have zero brand name products, the layout forces you to go through the ethnic food aisle, and there's little-to-no store planning.

As far as the A-town police and the MCall are concerned, this isn't a new pattern, guaranteed we'll hear the victims name and then it'll get buried. Back in October, the shooting at 2nd and Brookside spooked a lot of people in my neighborhood (myself included). There were 2 suspects seen running from the scene, and they had one person in for "questioning." What the hell happened??? It's been months, is there still a killer running around in our neighborhood? Why haven't we heard anything??? If the police wants to have the community start taking part in self-patrolling of neighborhoods, better communication would help a great deal!

From the East Valley Tribune: The wife of a slain Chandler business owner is looking to her faith and the public for answers. Shawn Micheal Foote, 26, was shot in the head Saturday night. He was found behind the counter of Smoke n Stuff, the store he co-owns at 411 S. Arizona Ave, and died hours later.

From The Arizona Republic: When authorities announced an arrest two weeks ago in a series of sexual assaults that had terrorized Chandler, the suspect turned out to be a resident of the very neighborhood the rapist stalked.

Santana Batiz Aceves was a construction worker, a married man with a young son and daughter, and a neighbor with a fondness for grilling and food - a man who led, seemingly, an unremarkable life. His arrest surprised those who knew him best.

And, from WAND TV: An Illinois man who pleaded guilty to murder in the 2003 kidnapping and murder of a top major league prospect for the Cincinnati Reds faces life in prison.

But a judge has decided that Reginald Riddle of Harvey (Illinois) will be eligible for parole after 25 years.

The victim, Cincinnati Reds outfielder Dernell Stenson, was abducted after he left a Scottsdale, Arizona nightclub and then killed after being driven in his own SUV to Chandler.

ChandlerSwamp anyone???
