I remember when El Dorado Park was just being built and how excited the Lakewood community was. What a great place to have family picnics, birthdays ect. Now it's being infested with the lower life of the area and ruined. Very sad to see. Certainly would'nt want the little ones running up to you to show you their special find and have it being someone's hand or worse. Totally sick.

... and stay in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho. The accused murderer is from Orange County and El Dorado Park is still a nice place to visit.

I've never had an unpleasant experience there. It's a lovely place, and very large.
Of course, all it takes is one bad experience to make us nervous and afraid.

I don't think people routinely leave dismembered bodies in El Dorado Park. Juarez, that's a different story.

No. The motive was robbery.

This was a local kid with local family ties to east Long Beach who commited this gruesome crime. His parents are probably already putting up the for sale sign on there home!

To be clear, others are reporting he went there in the past, not currently.

Provide some facts to back your assertion, "it's being infested with the lower life of the area and ruined." You do have a right to your opinions. But when the words are derelict in substance, your better off keeping to yourself.

Watch the video attached to the article. Daniel Wozniak confessed to murder and told police where to find the dismembered body parts of murder victim Samuel Herr. The victim's torso was found exactly where he said it was -- at Los Alamitos Training Base theatre and police are looking for dismembered body parts (head, arm, hand) in El Dorado Park. Police say Wozniak is in no condition to leave the Orange County Prison and told police:

"I told you where I dumped it, now you find it." -- Daniel Wozniak

The Orange County Register has more in-depth coverage:

"Arrest in killings, dismemberment," by Jon Cassidy, May 28, 2010

Condolences to the family and friends of the victims.
