David Allen Lucas is innocent. 2 other men confessed to this murder. There is so much more to this case than people realize. Just because he was found guilty does not mean he commit the crime.

In a court of law, that is exactly what it means

I know and it's sad that the justice system is so messed up. There are more innocent people in prison and on death row than we realize.

Also, did he kill 2 children or one child? Are there any pictures of David Allen Lucas?

This may have been answered but he killed two 3 year old boys. One was with his mom, who was also murdered, the other murdered along with his babysitter.
I found his picture quite accidentally; he was on a show call "Scene of the Crime" on 1/4/2010. I have reason to believe this is the same man who attacked me in San Diego about 4 years before he was caught for the first murders he committed. How many others were there? You know he didn't get caught on the first one and he certainly had to have worked his way "up" to murder. By the time I was located by the prosecutor's office, he was suspected of committing 3 murders, all by throat slashing. Even though it was so long ago, I don't believe I'd have forgotten his face.

the whole purpose of this blog is to voice opinions, debate and get facts and to learn. This is for sandiego2203 there is no reason to get upset and defensive, everyone on here has a right to say whatever they feel or think. No one really does know all the facts, not even the jury, judge or anyone but the true persons that this happened to. I see on tv all the time innocent people getting convicted. The justice system is so messed up it's not even funny. I think it's okay to express outrage but I don't think it's necessary to resort to bullying and name calling.

I remember the phone call... my mom called me and told me that April and Brian had been beaten to death. It didn't click. I asked her if they were in the hospital and if there was anything I could do. She had to repeat herself and tell me they didn't live. The casket was closed. The two were inside with Brian tucked in April's arms. In 1993, I asked my uncle if we could visit their gravesite. I didn't even realize the date. It was April's birthday. It wasn't until 2006 until I finally read the Superior Court Case. I lived in San Diego at the time and chose to drive to the site. I couldn't imagine living in that apartment. Knowing that my little cousin knew his killer. I had to finally say goodbye. And as an adult, I also know that distraught man who lost his fiance and his son. He's made it through. And the baby girl is all grown up and so beautiful. I don't have hate for those accused. I'm only sad that I couldn't watch Brian grow up the same as his little sister. He had the sweetest smile and I loved the freckles on his nose. It's too bad that a life like that is taken without a moments notice. No one can ever fathom losing someone until it happens. And to know that it didn't have to happen... is even worse. I miss you guys.

Back around 1990 Christopher Box and Manuel Flores clubbed and slashed several people to death including children in a house on Clairemont Mesa Blvd in Clairemont. I think they were convicted and received relatively short sentences.

Chris may have been a bully, but manuel was still there and still involved. He may not have been the killer but he still helped chris dump my dead brothers body in a parking lot!

WARNING TO ALL WOMEN WRITING TO DAVID ALLEN LUCAS: DO NOT FALL FOR HIS LIES OR FALL INTO HIS TRAP WITH PROMISES OF LOVE AND MARRIAGE. HE'S BEEN ENGAGED TO 2 WOMEN AT THE SAME TIME AND WHO KNOWS, THERE MIGHT BE MORE. I AM DETERMINED TO TRY TO PREVENT OTHER WOMEN FROM GETTING HURT OR BECOMING A VICTIM. HE USES WOMEN FOR MONEY AND OTHER PERSONAL NEEDS, THAT IS IT. I KNOW THIS FOR A FACT. Thank you.

HeidiMD, I happened to see your post so I am going to post the articles that I read about David Allen Lucas - if you are interested in accessing the archives from the S.D. Public Library read post #5 about how to access it online.
Sidebar, in my "research", I also found some about a gentleman named John Moncrief who killed his girlfriend's daughter in his van...it's awful but again another I hadn't heard of either.
I grew up in Normal Heights and I knew John Moncrief. I was wondering what ever happened to him? I assume he's still in prison. Does anybody know?

I went to school with Chris Box and Manny Flores. I didn't keep in touch with Chris Box after he graduated, but over the years that I knew him, I found him to be a very sweet person. Manny on the other hand made my blood turn cold. I can't explain it. He had a sinister quality to him. He just struck me as mean through and through. When I heard about the murders, it didn't surprise me that Manny was involved. However, I cannot square the story I have heard with the Chris Box that I knew. I don't doubt that Chris did something bad - even just by being there to rob the eventual victims, but the story in the papers portraying Chris as the ringleader will never ring true in my ears and heart. I can't help but think that Manny took advantage of his small size and youth by pinning it all on Chris. Chris was then a very strongly built black man who, if you were going by prejudice and stereotypes, people would fear. I personally feared Manny. The whole thing is a tragedy. I mourn for all that Chris Box has lost, and personally will be very sad if he is ever executed. Whatever horrible mistakes he may have made, deep down he had a good a heart. Is it possible for someone to do something very, very bad but still be worthy of forgiveness?

you sure did get Chris N Manny confused!Manny must of not wanted to date you that is why you had hate for him,to bad! Manny was n still is the sweetest person you'll ever meet, thats why everyone loved him. if you really knew him you would not of thought twice of sincere way. if you dont know the story quit trying to put it together you were so wrong with your thoughts. Chris had it all planned when he went to pick Manny up that morning, Manny was up chillin waiting to go to work when Chris came and asked him to help move his mother, most people dont know what happen and that is fine but quit trying to play off these two like you really knew them i knew BOTH of them WELL.
eventually everyone will see who was telling the truth and who was not. i feel bad everyday for the familes that lost because everyone did in all.
