I JUST FOUND OUT TODAY THAT THIS HAS HAPPEND TO HIM. IF ANYONE KNOWS ANYTHING THEY NEED TO CALL THE POLICE. I GREW UP WITH RICKEY IN MORENO VALLEY FOR MANY YEARS AND HAVE LOST CONTACT WITH HIM. IF THIS WERE YOUR SON OR BROTHER WOULDNT YOU WANT TO FIND THE PERSON THAT DUMPED YOUR CHILD OFF ON THE SIDE OF A ROAD. HE WASNT A P.O.S HE WAS A FRIEND,SON,BROTHER...HE COULD HAVE HAD A CHNACE...BUT BECAUSE SOMEONE DUMPED HIM LIKE THAT HE COULDNT GET HELP. THIS JUST MAKES ME SO MAD! HOW COULD ANYONE BE SO COLD?!
I loved him

I'm hoping they find out who left him like that...whoever it was needs to pay. Ricky never did anything to deserve being left like that. He was a beautiful person and I know he wasn't supposed to go like that. I've been in contact with people who know his family, but haven't heard anything new on the case yet. I believe they're still waiting for the toxicology report, also.

Wow!

I'm hoping this is not the same Ricky Gomez I knew. We were childhood friends and grew up together in Moreno Valley. I wanted to reconnect with him and his family. I googled his name and this article came up. If there's anyone who knew Ricky or is currently in contact with his family, please email me @ [email protected]
