All the information that I have does seem to indicate that this happened there (ponderosa). Apparently he was visiting a friend. Something happened that I don't exactly know yet. Someone mentioned it was horseplay, but I've also heard it was a robbery that got bungled. Maybe Six confronted this person and it resulted in him being wounded I dunno. He was 29 I believe.

Let me start my offering my condolances to Fred, Olga, and the rest of the Mendez family, this is a tragedy indeed. Yes, it did take place in Ponderosa and no, Six did not live there. The people that were there are saying that the house was broken into by Six, 3 other guys, and a girl. However, there didn't appear to be any forced entry in the house. I don't think that at this point it is fair to call this a murder. I saw the young man who did it and and he was VERY beat up. His head was swollen like a basketball, one eye swelled shut, and his lip sticking out about 4 inches further than it should. According to the individuals who reside at the house where the incident took place they did not know Six or any of the friends he had with him, with the except of the girl who was named Brittney Keith (aka Nikki) The way they tell the story is that Six was beating up one of the guys who lived there and when when the guy absolutelly could not take another blow he pulled out a knife and stabbed Six. According to the condition his face is in right now I tend to believe this story to be true. The other people who were there (according to eye witnesses) were Stephan (possibly with the aka Turkey), Justin Meadors, and a guy named Kyle. Unfortanetally, all of these so called "friends" of Six's fled when it all went down and left him there to die, the people who reside in the house called the EMT's. I knew Sixfredo and always liked him and, once again, offer condolances for such a tragic loss. But right now the gentleman who apparently got beat up (nickname is Stitch) and ultimatelly stabbed Six is not in police custody and right now is saying it was self defense. Until a full investigation has been performed it's not fair to say that someone was murdered because if you are beating someone to death they are most likely going to try to fight back. Sixfredo was a nice guy and I hate to think he would have done anything to provoke such a thing, as his death, but the reality is none of us were there and SOMEBODY had to have beaten that guy.

I appreciate your point of view and you're right...YOU weren't there and I wasn't there but SOMEBODY WAS!!! If anyone reading this was there why don't you enlighten us.

If you KNOW that he was over there playing video games you should probably report that to the police because that's not the story they got. So if you have that kind of information and you care so much about him why don't you enlighten the authorities.

Sixfredo and his family are all friends of both me and my family and I would like to give my condolences to all of the Mendez family and all of Sixfredo's friends. I know that he will be missed so dearly.

The sad thing is that so many questions may never be answered because the key link is Sixfredo and he is not here to defend his honor.

I pray that anyone who does have correct information will go to the police and share that information. And if you were a friend of his or his loved ones you would do that to help give the hurt and concerned a little peace of mind.

I do belive that something was going on for the boy that was treated and released from HMH to have the injuries on his face that he has. But I also have to say that there is a line of self defence. Self defence is when someone is putting your life in danger. It is ok to defend yourself to the point you are no longer in danger. I do not feel that the extent (meaning Sixfredo's death) of the injuries really justifies self defence. To my understanding he was stabbed more than once. This to me sounds a little more than self defense. A good example would be a person getting robbed, raped, or such that would put them in life threating danger, and shooting or stabbing their attacker and the attacker not be dead but not still attacking you. You are now NO LONGER in danger because you can flea. If you go on to attack your attacker to go on and take their life then you have intent.

That is just what I understand as self defense and my explaination on why I think the situation sounds funny.

I know that I hope that the truth comes out and soon. And I know that I will miss my friend.

I totally agree with your definition of self defense. I just so happen to live in the neighborhood where it happened and saw the guy who was released from hmh walking down the road earlier today. He looked REALLY BAD! He almost looked bad enough that I think had he took much more of a beating he could have easily been dead so I think it very well could have been a life threatening situation for him. This was before I knew anything about this whole thing and I asked the guy what happened to him. He told me that some people had broken into his house and were beating him up. He said that one guy just kept on so he pulled out his pocket knife and stabbed him but the guy didn't let go so he stabbed him again. It wasn't until later that I heard the story on the news and saw my neighborhood on there, that I knew the two incidents were one in the same. It is very sad and I hate it that a family lost a loved one. I don't know any of these people but just by the looks of the guy it seemed like he needed some self defense.

Re: Clarification in Etown -- As a friend in mourning, I have a few questions; since you wish to give forth your "clarification"...

-1- It has been said that this home was broke into, correct? Why isn't there a sign of forced entry...

-2- As you "claim" Six did not act alone but was with three males and one female, correct? Other then a statement, from the killer, can you tell me that Six was the aggressor who beat him to the injuries you describe (and not one of the three other males)?

-3- Stories are often blown out of proportion but, as you "claim" this killer as beat to a pulp; you say that "his head was swollen like a basketball..". Yet he was treated and "released" from his injuries, all media sources report. If this guy suffered massive trauma and/or an injury to his head, he would have been monitored for a time to insure his safety from brain swelling/bleeding.. You're just not going to be looked at and let go, but kept; at least that's my nursing experience..

All in all, this story does NOT add up and I hope that his family can get the justice they deserve for the murder of their son.

His dad worked there, whose name is also Sixfredo Mendez. I'm not sure if Six Jr worked there or not

1) No sign of forced entry??? What, just because the door wasn't off the hinges? It was clear that the door had been popped open by anything (screwdriver, knife, etc.) I used to live in a mobile home and lost my keys for over a week, had to break in every day. Mobile home doors pop right open.
2)I don't know where you misunderstood but I just SAW the stabber,(dont think its fair for you or anyone else to call him a "killer" bc he has not yet been charged with anything) didn't talk to him. It were the other two people who live in that house that told me Six was the one doing the agressing (Heather and Brandon)
3)As far as the injuries go...I'm not a doctor or affiliated with the medical field in any way. All I know is that I saw the guys face and he looked ROUGH!
Again, I WAS NOT THERE so I can't tell you EXACTLY what happened. I am simply sharing with the good people of topix.com the details from eye witness accounts. Whether these witnesses are being truthful or not that is for the investigation to determine so I guess we'll all find out eventually.

Six was arrested for a crime he did not commit, profiled by the police by his race; May 30, 2009 he was acquitted from all charges -- cleared as a free man. The police officer in this case changed his story a number of times on the stand, regarding Six's involvement in this "said" crime. There was no evidence. Perjury was committed by the police officer and Six was cleared; with no evidence to push forth with the case.

It seems a little "convenient" for someone to pull the "robbery" card.. Murder.. and claim it was self defense..

Don't you think?

Self defense has its borders, regardless of how beat up you are in a tossup UNLESS your life is being threatened with a gun, knife, or other deadly weapon it does not justify murdering another person -- and claiming self defense. If this guy was so beat up why is he out walking around his neighborhood as an above poster detailed? Wouldn't he be at home recovering from his injuries? You'd think, right?

All in all, we can speculate all we want but never find out the full truth. My fear is that since Six was profiled for a crime he didn't commit his family is going to get no justice in his tragic murder. I can only hope that the police do their duty as this "story" doesn't add up to logically. I hope the police can see what many others are seeing.
