    Based on the time of this report, police concluded “no foul play” in less than 9 hrs. Is this reasonable? Are/have all possible videos from every surveillance camera within the vicinity of the incident been reviewed within first 9 hrs? Are some parties who could help more not cooperating because of upcoming holiday? Justice or revenue, Fontana? I hope your local reporters will follow up accordingly. A good man to many was lost to all.
