    SUNNYVALE – A suspect has been arrested in connection with a fatal August 2020 stabbing at a Sunnyvale park, authorities said. Jose Luis Salazar, 26, was already in custody at San Benito County jail when a warrant was signed for his arrest on Dec. 13, the Sunnyvale Department of Public Safety said in a news release Monday. DNA was used to link Salazar to the stabbing death of Anthony Juarez, 38, at Baylands Park on Aug. 15, 2020, authorities said. During the investigation, evidence was submitted to the Santa Clara County Crime Laboratory for DNA testing, and a full DNA profile of an “unknown male subject” was identified and uploaded to the Combined DNA Index System, or CODIS, authorities said. The crime lab on Sept. 20 notified detectives that Salazar’s DNA profile matched the unknown male subject’s DNA profile. Salazar’s DNA was collected when he was arrested for the attempted murder of his father in Hollister on Aug. 12, authorities said. “Once the sample was place in the CODIS database it matched the DNA profile of the suspect in this...
    A West New York man admitted to killing a 32-year-old woman in 2019, authorities said. Edwin Orlando Velasco-Salazar pleaded guilty to pleaded guilty to one count of first-degree aggravated manslaughter related to the death of Irma Doris Contreras on Nov. 1, 2019, Hudson County Prosecutor Esther Suarez said. Velasco-Salazar on Oct. 25 appeared before the Superior Court Judge Vincent J. Militello, and admitted to recklessly causing Contreras’ death while exhibiting an extreme indifference to human life, the prosecutor said.  The State will be recommending a sentence of 20 years in New Jersey State Prison subject to the No Early Release Act. Sentencing in this case has been scheduled for Jan. 3, 2022.

    Another jump, another death. That's becoming the disturbing pattern at the Skydive Lodi Parachute Center in California. The San Joaquin County skydiving school has had 22 recorded deaths since it opened in 1981, nine of which occurred since 2016, according to the Federal Aviation Administration. This time, it was Sabrina Call, a 57-year-old woman who has been described as a "very experienced" skydiver. Her parachute became "heavily tangled," and she dropped to her death, the San Joaquin County Sheriff's Office said. SKYDIVING PLANE CRASH KILLS 9 IN HAWAII Bill Dause, the owner of Skydive Lodi and a self-described skydiving legend, told KCRA, "We're sad, but it's just like a car wreck or anything else. You have to go on." Dause has been going on for years following fatalities at his facilities. In March, he was ordered to pay $40 million in connection to a 2016 double fatality at his center. In that case, Tyler Turner, a recent high school graduate, went skydiving for the first time to celebrate his friend's birthday. Turner, 18, jumped...
    MEXICO CITY (AP) — State police announced Sunday that they have taken over law enforcement duties in Mexico’s Caribbean coast resort of Tulum, relieving a municipal force that has been charged in the death of a Salvadoran woman while being detained. Lucio Hernández Gutiérrez, the acting state police chief in Quintana Roo state, said the municipal officers in Tulum had systematically violated proper procedure. He said they will be sent for retraining, “because of the constant and intolerable acts of use and abuse of restraint procedures, which were poorly applied, erroneous and incorrect.” He added that municipal police were guilty of “the lack of control of personal impulses in restraining people, violating legal norms and the highest regard for human rights.” Tulum officers who do not pass the training courses will be fired, Hernández Gutiérrez said. Four Tulum officers have been ordered to stand trial in the case of Victoria Esperanza Salazar, who died March 27 after a police woman was seen kneeling on her back as three male officers looked on. She had been reported acting...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — A Salvadoran woman who died in police custody over the weekend in a Caribbean beach resort had also suffered abuse by her companion, who has been arrested, Mexican authorities said Tuesday. Quintana Roo state Gov. Carlos Joaquin did not specify whether the abuse allegedly suffered by Victoria Esperanza Salazar was sexual or physical. He said one of the woman’s two daughters also had been abused and the man was arrested as part of the state government’s effort to ensure justice for Salazar. Salvadoran President Nayib Bukele wrote in his Twitter account that the arrested man, a Mexican, had sexually abused the daughter. “Victoria filed a complaint weeks ago and took her daughter to a shelter to protect her,” Bukele wrote. “Unfortunately, nothing was done until now, with Victoria murdered, it is not until now they are following up on the case.” Salazar died Saturday after a female police officer was seen kneeling on her on a street in the resort of Tulum, and officials have said four officers are being investigated. An autopsy found that the...

    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Outrage grew in Mexico and El Salvador fueled by bystander video of a Salvadoran woman dying in police custody in the Caribbean resort of Tulum, an event President Andrés Manuel López Obrador flatly said was murder Monday. Victoria Esperanza Salazar let out a scream Saturday afternoon as a female police officer knelt on her back to cuff her hands behind her. Salazar was face down on the street and barefoot. Her feet flailed. A couple people passed slowly by on a bicycle. There were food stands a few yards away. Clips of video cobbled together give no sense of how much time elapsed. Then three other officers are seen standing around her motionless body still facedown, chatting casually. Later, three officers lift her still handcuffed body into the back of a police pickup truck and drive away. Video circulating on social media does not show events before Salazar was face down on the street with the officer on top of her. Salazar had been living in Mexico for some years on a “humanitarian visa,” El...

    SAN ANTONIO – Bexar County Judge Nelson Wolff is directing his county manager to look into policy changes after Bexar County deputies fatally shot a mentally troubled combat veteran on Tuesday. The death of Damian Lamar Daniels, 31, sparked protests outside the Bexar County Jail earlier this week. Deputies were called to his home by the Red Cross to check on Daniels, who had been struggling since the death of his relatives. Daniels was aggressive, however, Bexar County Sheriff Javier Salazar said he initiated a physical struggle that lasted longer than two minutes. Toward the end of the struggle, deputies said Daniels reached for his weapon, so one deputy shot him twice. Salazar released body camera images of the encounter on Thursday in an effort to show the public what the deputies were facing. In a statement released Friday, Wolff said, “It may have been better to send crises mental health professionals rather than deputies with guns and uniforms.” “Based on the information I have regarding the unfortunate death of Damian Lamar Daniels, I believe this incident should have never...
    Shaun King Instagram Sergeant Damian Lamar Daniels was a 31-year-old combat veteran who was shot and killed by authorities in front of his home in San Antonio, Texas, after authorities responded to mental health calls. Daniels was described by family members, and later by authorities, as suicidal. Bexar County Police have since released body cam photos which show a bulge beneath Daniels’ shirt, which authorities say was a gun. In the wake of Daniels’ death, activists are condemning the behavior of the deputies who were on the scene when Daniels died. Many have argued that police shouldn’t have been the ones to respond to a mental health crisis, and that a counselor would have been better suited to help Daniels. Here’s what you need to know:1. Authorities Came to Daniels’ Health in Response to a Mental Health Check Bexar County Police Department On Tuesday evening, three deputies arrived at Daniels’ home after receiving four mental health-related calls, according to Sheriff Javier Salazar. The first call came from a family member, who said Daniels was having suicidal thoughts....
    In “Ruben Salazar: Man in the Middle,” director Phillip Rodriguez painstakingly explores the life and death of the reporter whose public and private lives — as well as his tragic death — have inspired artists, writers, musicians, playwrights and subsequent generations of journalists. Rodriguez uses extensive archival footage in the 2014 PBS documentary, along with narrated snippets of Salazar’s rare personal writings, to reconstruct the career of a bright young reporter from Ciudad Juarez and El Paso who got his start as an investigative journalist at the El Paso Herald-Post and quickly made a mark on Los Angeles after arriving to work at The Times in 1959. Salazar did foreign tours in Vietnam and in the Dominican Republic and served as bureau chief in Mexico City before being called back to cover a brewing political phenomenon, the Chicano movement, on the streets of the Eastside. Cutting the figure of standard newspaper journeymen of the era, with neckties and pomaded hair, Salazar found himself at social events where the white ruling class of Southern California mingled with the...
