Last year, to the day, Jennifer Flores' body was found in Eagle Rock with a quarter mile trail of blood and tissue leading from her resting place to the door of one David Jaime Del Toro, a fire captain with the LAFD.
Earlier today, I got this comment on a previous entry:
So, this has nothing to do with your current post, but do you have any idea what ever happened with the murder case against David Jaime Del Toro, the firefighter who was charged with murdering a woman in Eagle Rock? (you blogged about it a while ago.) Just curious. I live in the neighborhood and am interested in knowing what's going on with the case.Well, that's a damn good question Anonymous.
In fact, I've been wondering that myself. I usually get some hits on Mr. Del Toro, but the last couple of months has seen a surge (such a powerful, manly word) in Google queries coming to the site.
And with a little help I was able to find out a few things.
Mr. Del Toro (Booking Number 9278178) is currently residing in the Men's Central Jail at 441 Bauchet Street awaiting a preliminary hearing on September 7th at the LA Superior Court, Department 110. He is being held without bail and, if I understand correctly, isn't allowed visitors.
So, there's the fast spinning wheels of justice for ya, Anonymous. Hey, at least he's not on the street.
