RE: Norwalk from "City News Service" and "Public Safety Roundup"<p>

Two weeks ago, two articles announced "Autopsy pending for "sheriff's deputy," and "investigators were trying to determine if it was suicide or homicide."<p>

It occured behind BoBo's Cocktail lounge by the intersection of 14000 block Studebaker Road and Rosecrans. It happened on Friday, January 28, and the call was received at 3:30p.m.<p>

There have been several killings reported in the newspapers this year for this area of Norwalk. Another also on Studbaker across from the hospitol.<p>

There appears to be little followup on local and school campus violence. We need that little paper "The Tribune" back again so citizens can know what is going on.

Deputy's death an apparent suicide

NORWALK - A sheriff's deputy found dead of a gunshot wound in Norwalk on Friday apparently killed himself, a coroner's investigator said.

Deputy Efren Dorado, 35, of Bell Gardens, was found dead in a pickup truck in an alley behind the 14000 block of Studebaker Road about 3:30 p.m. Friday, according to Lt. John Kades of the coroner's office.

It was unclear if a weapon was found with the body. Kades said a preliminary investigation suggested suicide.

It seems to me that all of this violence in Norwalk, is because there is too much drug dealings going on, selling at their homes OPENLY, and police do nothing about it. Police have been informed of the people doing this, and nothing has been done.

I saw some coverage on KCAL.It was an overhead view
from a helicopter.You could clearly see 2 clean
bullet holes in the front window right about where
the blue sun tinting would be on a cars windshield.
When I heard a couple of weeks later it was ruled
a suicide my jaw dropped.He put the gun behind his
head and shot himself twice with the bullets exiting
out the front windshield?I think somebody walked up
and shot twice through the windshield

What did ever happen to that newspaper THE TRIBUNE??? And how can we go about getting it back??? Last year there were a total of SIX shootings and ONE stabbing on my BLOCK alone!!! One of these shootings occured RIGHT OUTSIDE my front door!! And it seems like nobody really knew about any of these. Even though they all literally happened within a one block radius! The Tribune would have reported on each and every one of these. BRING BACK THE TRIBUNE!!!

"Just Looking" - sorry for your family's grief.

It would be nice if the sherrif's department had an online blotter sheet. I watch so many arrests across the street at Norwalk High School it would be nice to know what they are. Thank the good Lord there have not been any killings.

I heard the police men was working "undercover" when killed, and there were about two more killings in same place with in 2 months.
Many residents have complaint to city hall about this cocktail place, it's open 24/7 365, with out any response. this place needs to be closed. Maybe we have to be more demanding with our city officials to keep us safer. We have to send our complaints directly to city hall or there will be no change or near to nothing.

I'm a very old friend, I haven't known much about his personal affairs from fifteen years ago, but can tell you that when I met him. He seem like such a happy person. If Efren wasn't making making a joke that would make you laugh, then he would be smiling all the time. He was so easy to get along with, it was a pleasure to have him around. He loved his family so much. When I heard the news, I couldn't help, but cried. I fell so devastated and deeply touched by the loss of his being. I can put my head up high and go on with life and remember Efren with a smile always on his face. May the grace of God be with his family.

Thank you for sharing with the public a little of what Efren Dorado was like. For Some one who does not know him just to see all those pictures would be deeply touched. I met Efren in the city of Bell Gardens, of course that was long time ago, but I will for ever have his smile on my mind. God bless all the Dorado family, my high respect and love goes to you all.

From now on make each day count with every one we still have by our side.

I am briefly back in California for work training and visiting my family now living in Downey. Last night, I decided to get in touch with my Bell Gardens High School Friends. Among those beloved friends from my High School years is Efren. Last night, I searched for his name and was very sadden to learn that he passed away. I still do not believe that it happened since he is still very alive in my often recalled memories from my Bell Gardens years.

I am deeply sorry for your loss.
