    lets not jump to any conclusions, could be a case of self defense, although that would be hard to prove in Los Angeles County where any use of a knife against a person will cause an automatic arrest and detainment for months, even if 4 guys were beating you to death with their fists, soon as you pull a weapon to defend yourself, your going to jail, and everyone knows this, so just because the “suspect” left the scene does not mean he is guilty of anything, perhaps he just wanted to avoid our justice system in which he will sit in jail for at least 6 months while his job and place to live get flushed down the toilet while he fights for justice.

    Even if the victim in this case was beating the suspect with a lead pipe before the suspect pulled the knife it won’t matter a bit, the suspect can say goodbye to the next 6 to 8 months of his life and then he will be forced to take a plea bargain or sit in jail longer. (assuming that this guy can’t afford bail like most folks)

    So lets not jump to any conclusions. I know what you are all thinking, someone got too high or too drunk or one gang banger didn’t like another gang banger. But that may not be the case……

      Im only trying to help the family and friends of the deceased. Nobody wants that to happen to a friend or family member AND they shouldnt have to clean up after it. The insurance will
      cover the cost.

          Even if he didn’t have renters insurance the apartment complex has insurance. And it IS covered under insurance.

        I have known people who have had to clean up after such tragic events, and I am sure they would have appreciated a company like this one….sadly it is left up to family or friends…..authorities take the body and u are left with sadness and a mess to boot…..I’ve never heard of a company like this but I can see how it would be helpful..just saying

        You sound like douche, they would chase the ambulance only if your mom was driving it. I heard she’s hot.

          No trauma solutions are the douches. Guy is dead and all they have to say is, “If you need a crime and trauma scene clean up please call.”

          I’m surprised they didn’t show up at the apartments with their cleaning supplies trying to schlep their services even before the body was removed.

          “Ah we’re not worried about the body, we’ll just clean up around him and come back later to finish up.”

            We are trying to provide a service. That service is not one you can put off until next week or even a few days. People still live next door or maybe in the apartment. We clean up to decrease the risk of disease . The sooner it is cleaned up the better for everybody. Its a different kind of business and I do expect resistance from uninformed people like yourself .

            Can’t a guy do a job that helps the victims family and so what if he happens make a buck or two!?!?! What difference does it make to you? Sadly, this happens all too often and someone indeed has to clean it up. Is it a delicate situation? Of course! Could the original post been worded differently to appease all you nay sayers…..hmmm, not sure about that one since many on here like to ramble on and comment negatively about every dang thing …regardless of the topic :o fact is… There really is no easy or right way to approach someone in this horrific situation…..I will assume this guys goal was to let the people know that there is SOMEONE to assist you! Over and out!

      Spamming is tacky. I agree that your service is necessary, and must be done by qualified people, but spamming the comment section of a local news site which grieving family and friends as well as community members gather to discuss details of the incident is (in my opinion) only effective at deterring people from using your service. I would suggest you directly contact the Sunset Ridge management office to solicit your services.

      No empathy? Maybe that would’ve helped a bit before trying to sell your services.

        In all honesty, last night when I wrote the first comment I pressed the wrong button and my message was posted. That is why there wasn’t a phone number posted. It was after midnight so i thought id wait til the morning to finish my comment.I did follow up on that message this morning before anyone else commented. I was not spamming, I was simply putting my business out there. If it came across too “tacky” or “classy” that’s your opinion and im sure I filled your day with thought. But I did acomplish getting my business name out there. Didn’t I? Its a tough business to advertise for because nobody ever thinks they will need it. We’ll be here if god forbid you ever need us.
