Is this psycho related to Terry Childs? Remember the drug dealer who shot his coke head girlfriend and went to San Quentin on a murder conviction. Violence is inherited in some families...

Maybe related to Terry Childs who just locked up the San Francisco computer system. What's with this family?

Nice comment, and classy too.

SLV is a much safer place to live than Fremont. And its Ben Lomond...not Ben Lomand, you moron.

In response to "what a waste:
There is no more crime in San Lornezo Valley than there is in any other town in Santa Cruz County.
Alcohol was involved, which always impairs a person's judgment and seeing as people drink in just about every city, town and village all over the world, this type of crime, unhappily, can happen anywhere and that includes the pretty village of Capitola.

The Terry Childs I refered to was a Santa Cruz drug dealer in the 80s. He killed his girlfriend; because somebody told him she was a ratfink.

I heard about the San Francisco computer hacker on the 10 o'clock news last night. Maybe the reporters should compare notes with that case too...

It's not the booze. Not drinking will not make this person any better. Whatever led him to do this will still be there.
All the booze does is give them something to blame.

All of those boys had problems with violence. Terry did not kill HIS girlfriend. He and his girlfriend shot and killed that teenage girl that they thought was a narc/snitch. BTW she turned out to be pregnant too. They shot her multible times as she tried to crawl away. Also her boyfriend was in jail at the time for selling pot or Terry would have ended up dead too.

For the past two years, all I've heard about Rick Childs is that he's a wonderful dad. When he drops his child off at school, teachers and parents comment about what a wonderful bond he has with his son. They hug, they kiss. Rich DID turn himself in. Yes, he needs to go to prison, alcohol is no excuse, but you can't take away the fact that his son loves him ore than anything. The boy has enough to deal with without having to hear others call his dad a "demented freak". Let just give our support to the child and hope he comes out okay in all this.
god bless

Not sure who you are....THANK you for clarifying some of this! She actually miscarried one month prior to her murder. She was found sitting under a tree.

I married the oldest brother in 1982 and left in 1991, with three of his kids that i raised pennyless then he showed up in my home town to be with his kids as soon as the youngest was 18! What a joke! F___ him right? Well right now im in a funeral home while my oldest views her dads body! He murdered himself. All those kids were messed upno one knows the half of it.. not even me. Im shocked about Rickey, he waz the.good son and didnt even drink but i think the memories and bond between their dad and them haunted each and everyone of them. Larry blew his head off with a shotgun nov 8 2011. RIP....
Let rickey be in his sons life somehow and never drink again. Ricey waz a good.guy just abused beyond belief. He needs help n love not bars or mentally he will never be back!!
