I heard about it an hour after it happened at 7-11 on Palizada. What I heard was this:

John was drinking and despondent and jumped in front of the train. The neighbor of John's girlfriend was screaming and the neighbor at first thought it was a child and went to see what happened and learned it was John. I don't know any of these people and what I wrote of course is heresy.

I am his sister and am very upset. Am getting different stories of what happened and why. I hope people who know john, his girlfriend and who also witness this will write in. It is intertesting that he was beat up before this happened.

I am so sorry to hear of the tragic loss of your brother John. I did not know him but I am the sister of Pamela Faris that was killed by Surfliner #450 on October 5th, 2003 while going to the Clam Chowder Cook-Off. She NEVER heard that train coming and also never saw it dur to trees/shrubs blocking the view from the outside of the tracks on the beach side. She was sucked in by the train and killed instantly not very far from where John was hit. I heard he was hit also by the Surfliner #457.

I feel your grief and the pain seems to only get worse with time, not better. These accidents should NEVER happen and San Clemente needs to spend more money PROTECTING it's citizens.

**ANYONE who saw or witnessed hearing anything about my sisters death please email me at:

Thank you for your note.

I am sorry to hear about your sister. I have a hard time sleeping. mostly going to sleep wondering where he is. They didn't have to die but they did and they are never comming back.

It is so awful. My poor mom. She is having a hard time too. John was in a bad place and had people in his life making it worse. I know he was depressed but he would have never committed suicide. In my opinion he was everything but pushed in front of the train. He was so intoxicated and didn't mean to be hit. A friend sent him down to the beach in his state. He was out of his mind. There is more to this story but we'll never know. The coroner said he had a black eye and was beat up before this. I smell foul play but thinking too much will drive you crazy. I have to just know he and your sister are in a better place.

It is just hard. I am sorry to about your sister. Please email me anytime. [email protected]

Thank you. I don't think that he meant to do this. I think he was pressured into it. He would never do this on his own. There was definitly fowl play.

I hope he is in a better place. Thank you again. It helps to hear from people.

Patty,
I was married to your brother Wayne for 8 years. I am really sorry to hear about John's death. I heard a lot about him from Wayne. I just found about all of this from your mom today. I called Wayne. I will pray for you all. Dawn
