Come on Reporter, two stories now and still no real information. Except of course that yesterday the guy was from Elk Grove and today he is from Citrus Heights.

The victim should have parked in a nice area. In a parking lot behind a skate park? Then again, how would he have known?
I hate stories like this because it gives craigslist a bad name. Craigslist has made changes for security purposes.
One is if you want to place an ad, you can't just input the info and be done with it. The site wants your phone number and they call and give you a code to input before your ad will appear. So now, you have to provide not only a valid e-mail address but also a telephone number and you have to answer the phone.
