Families of the slain gather to honor loved ones, advocate for victims' rights in Whittier - The San Gabriel Valley Tribune

Tuesday, April 18, 2017

Lee Bertha Pickett-Allen shared stories of the difficulties they’ve encountered while attending parole hearings to speak on behalf of their murdered sons.Campbell’s son, Scott Campbell, 27, of Anaheim, was strangled and thrown from a small airplane into the Pacific Ocean near Catalina in 1982. His remains were never found. Two men have since been convicted of the crime. She described the parole hearing process as “barbaric.”Picket-Allen’s 17-year-old son, Ernest Picket Jr., was gunned down after leaving Dorsey High School in Los Angeles, where he was a senior, in 1984. The case remained unsolved for more than a decade before two men were arrested and convicted of the murder.Pickett-Allen, and others, said they felt an obligation to attend parole hearings to provide a voice for their loved ones, who cannot speak for themselves. “We need to strap this to our backs and really wear it, but it does wear you down,” she said.Jennifer Lundy, whose 3-year-old daughter was murdered in her own home in Montclair in 1993, explained that she’s had success in dealing with the system by applying constant pressure and never ceasing to assert her rights as a crime victim.“Yes it’s hard, and yes, there’s a lot of people who don’t want to go through their file again. There’s a lot of people who don’t want to drudge this up,” she said. “But if you do, you do not take no for an answer. You keep asking questions. You keep asking for the people. You hold them accountable.”Lundy said she is now advocating the creation of a database of murder convicts, similar to existing databases of sex and arson offenders. The database would allow the community to be aware when they are living or working in proximity to a convicted killer who’s been paroled from prison.JHV presented an “Outstanding Service” award to longtime organization volunteer Cynthia Bejar, as well as a “Special Recognition Award” to Montclair police Sgt. Byron Kelly, who discovered Lundy’s daughter in a closet, near death, in 1993 and tried to save her life. The little girl died in his arms. Years later, the lawman attended one of the killer’s parole hearings to help ensure he remained behind bars.But roughly half of the survivors of homicide victims are yet to reach that point in the process, as the slayings of their loved ones remain unsolved.Eight-year-old Nathalia Jackson, who attended the ceremony with her mother, Connie Chavarria, lost her father, 33-year-old Kenny Jackson, when he was shot during a robbery at the cell phone store he owned in Van Nuys in 2013.“I miss him and I love him,” she said.But the young girl has found a way to channel her grief into something positive. She designs, sews and donates a line of clothing called NAJI, Arabic for “survivor.” “It’s dedicated to my father and other children affected by homicide,” Nathalia said.Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Chief of Detectives Earl Shields encouraged those with unsolved cases to stay strong in their search for justice.He spoke of cases that were solved years, or even decades, after the fact.Homicide cases are never closed until they are solved, he said. And investigators regularly revisit old cases to see if they could be solved with new advances in forensic technology, new witnesses, or other means.

Oakland Ghost Ship fire's victims memorialized - Los Angeles Times

Monday, December 19, 2016

And the backwash of grief followed their paths back home.The funerals and memorials were just beginning this weekend. More than 150 people gathered to mourn Jo, who grew up in Thousand Oaks and Anaheim before moving to Oakland to be an artist a decade ago. Artists in jeans and boots or lime-green suits sat with Korean family and friends in funereal black. “When she would laugh so loudly ... sometimes I didn’t know what I was laughing about,” recalled Jo’s church youth counselor, Rev. Ryan C. Lee. “Even if you never met Ara, chances are you heard her," recalled her friend Jeanette Lin. “To Ara's parents, please know Ara brought so much joy to me and so many others. Thank you for bringing her into the world.”Jo was an artist, a dancer, “a karaoke legend,” a try-anything person who would be late because she fell into a deep conversation with a long-lost friend she just happened to spot on the street. “Let serendipity be your calendar” is how one friend put her philosophy. Jo worked at the Ink Stone, an art supply and printing shop in Berkeley, and curated a gallery called Sgraffito in Oakland. But she had myriad other projects. The night of the fire, she had gone to the Ghost Ship to give “$5 bang cuts” at the party with her friend, Jennifer Kiyomi Tanouye, who was offering elaborate nail polish designs.On Monday, Jo’s parents flew from South Korea, where they had returned to live, not knowing her fate.At the memorial, her mother, Yoo Sook Jo, recalled how a bus ran over Ara’s ankle 10 years ago.“I am thankful we had ten more years with Ara, because she could have died that day.”Her cousin, Grace Kim, said Jo was the “purest person” she knew

Prominent lawyer Tony Brooklier, son of powerful LA Mafia boss, dead at 70 - Los Angeles Times

Monday, November 21, 2016

My father could walk into a place, and for whatever reason, the room would stop,” Brooklier told The Times in 1989. “It was as if every eye was on him.”He graduated from Savanna High School in Anaheim in 1964 and got a congressional appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy. But during his first year, his father was listed in a national report on Mafia activities as a ranking member of the mob in L.A.A commander summoned Brooklier and informed him that he would probably not have a successful career in the military. Brooklier completed his undergraduate studies in 1968 at Loyola Marymount University. He earned his law degree in 1971 from UCLA after resolving to pursue a career that would defend his family."I wanted to put myself in a position to help my father," he told The Times. "Because I sensed when I was a kid what was going to happen. It's a thing all kids live with, you know — your parents will get divorced, they'll get hurt, they'll die. But that wasn't my fear…. I was so taken about what my father told me happened to him when he was a kid [in prison], I was so emotional about that, that I ... was never going to let it happen again."Brooklier is survived by his wife, television journalist Pat LaLama, and several adult children. aside class="trb_embed trb_filmstrip trb_filmstrip_list_item" data-content-embedlocation="Embed + (4)" data-content-id="87974872" data-content-size="large" data-content-type="gall

Obituary: Varjo Jurisoo, drafted by three armies, immigrated to US - Minneapolis Star Tribune

Monday, November 14, 2016

Rudolf Hess and other war criminals during the Nuremberg trials.Unable to return home for fear of persecution, Jurisoo immigrated to the United States in the late 1940s, landing in Anaheim, Calif. He picked oranges and was given supervisory duties because of his fluency with the languages spoken by the refugee workers. But it wasn’t long before he was drafted yet a third time — by the U.S. Army for the Korean War, for which he served in Europe.When Jurisoo returned to the United States, he bounced around Chicago, North Dakota and Minneapolis, where he acted in local theater productions, before returning to Chicago. It was there at age 35 that he met his wife, Margaret Hunt, in 1959.They married in 1960 and raised two sons in Brookfield, Ill., while Jurisoo worked as a trucking firm auditor. “After he got married, he had a pretty normal life,” said David Jurisoo. “No drama after that.”The family moved to Coon Rapids in the 1970s for a job transfer. . In his later years, Jurisoo returned to a hobby he had picked up in the prisoner camp: wood carving. He carved intricate figurines and gave them out as gifts.He and his wife became active travelers, driving across the country in their RV during the winter, favoring their sons’ homes in California and Alabama, along with New Mexico.Jurisoo was active in the Good Sam RV Club and ran its website for several years.He and Margaret were quite involved with the group’s Minnesota committee, and befriended many other travelers.“It always strikes me as remarkable that a guy who had to go through so much at such a young age was not only so normal, but so engaged with the people around him,” said Hunt. “I think he was like, ‘Well, that’s kind of how life goes.’?”

Jack Niendorf - Champaign/Urbana News-Gazette

Monday, July 18, 2016

City and County of Honolulu. In California, his employment was with the Austin Company, Irvine, where he was supervising superintendent for Disney's expansion at Anaheim. Jack never missed a day of school or work, ever.Jack's service in the Marines began with training at Camp Pendleton, Calif. His drill instructor, Sgt. Daniel Laroby, said, "Camp Pendleton had never seen a recruit like him before and probably never will again." In Vietnam, in spite of being too tall for the job, he convinced his commanding officer to let him be a door gunner. Jack flew 241 missions and did things out of the ordinary and more than expected. Ignoring rules, he often left the helicopter to help save the wounded and he never shot a water buffalo. For his exemplary service he was awarded two Purple Hearts, a Bronze Star and the Congressional Medal of Honor. In the book "Medal of Honor: Quotes" published in 2012 by the Center for American Values under the heading, "This War Brought Us the Most Decorated Soldier in U.S. Military History," Jack says, "Every thing I did was by instinct. I am not a hero, nor am I braver than the next man or woman. You would have done the same."In 2010, he married Rachel Gladney, who was born in Urbana in 1965 and graduated from Urbana High School in 1983. They with their baby daughter Amelia moved to Oahu, Hawaii, where they lived until moving to California in 2015.Jack leaves his wife Rachel, their 6-year-old daughter Amelia, his sons with his former wife Linda, John (Tess), and Robert (Julie), two grandchildren, Kyle and Taylor, his mother Dorothy, brother Jerry, parents-in-law Frank and Barbara Gladney, and other family members and friends who will miss him greatly.Memorial contributions may be sent to Edward Jones, 2704 S. Boulder Drive, Suite A, Urbana, IL 61802. Checks should be made out to Edward Jones Investments and the memo line should say: Amelia Niendorf Education Fund. Further contact available at
