    He turned himself in.
    The man, identified as 38-year-old Nathan Campbell, was being held on $1 million dollars bail.
    Police said he would soon be charged with murder .

    More info about the perp and his actions. What would make someone do something so cruel?

    The cross-street is where I lived when I first moved to L.A.

    It could have been much worse (which is no consolation to the heartbroken groom)...

    Then we really were neighbors. I lived on Brooks and the alley of the boardwalk for several years. My best best friend lived right there on Dudley and the boardwalk for 20 yrs. I skated there and walked my kids in strollers and then rode bikes with them for decades, right in that exact spot. Thus is so very sad.

    Apparently we were. We only lived on Dudley from 1985-86, then bought a house right behind the canals. It was just too hectic and noisy in that block by the beach and, of course, there was no parking for guests.

    But I rollerbladed my way through most of the 1990s, so no doubt our paths crossed. You were probably the biker yelling at me for blading in the bike path! LOL.

    This is indeed very sad. I wondered what stopped him from turning and driving up the boardwalk? The body count could have been much, much higher!

    Oh that poor husband. I just can't imagine the pain he must be in right now. My daughter just got married in June and all I can think about is the smile on her face all night. I'm sure her husband is still seeing his wife's beautiful smile, and now having to prepare to bury her. I heard that the guy that ran down the crowd wanted to know how many he hurt and wished he got more. I hope he gets the maximum sentence and the court shows no mercy. I saw a baby stroller in the aftermath. No mercy for this guy.
    It's almost been a year since we did our last show.Jay Bush my partner has been auditioning for the show Shark Tank and so this has put the show on hold. If he gets on Shark Tank, we will be terribly delayed. Good luck Jay. Either way we will one day continue the show and have the coolest global independent radio station out there. This is just a small video we did with one of our artists.Waiting for One and their tune 35 years. Check it out.

    We hope to be doing a radio show with all our artists real soon. Hope you can join in the fun. Please bare with us while we improve the show especially the sound.
