    Strange. The update on the first artilcle says they are investigating it as a homicide ?

    Perhaps it is simply more poor reporting

    Prayers for his family.
    Unless I provide a link, every one of my posts are to be considered rumor, Speculation, or simply MY OWN OPINION.

    From September 2014:

    http://www.bakersfieldnow.com/news/l...277154351.html

    An 88-year-old Delano man suffered head trauma, had his wrists and legs bound and was wrapped in a child's blanket when he was found inside the trunk of his own car, which was submerged in the Friant-Kern Canal just outside the city limits in September 2013...

    John Albay Galafate, 49, is the man who was arrested and charged with first-degree murder in August. According to court records, Galafate and his wife had moved in with their children at a home owned by Espinoza on Dover Place in 2013. Espinoza had difficulty collecting rent money and had gone to meet Galafate on Sept. 18, 2013. Espinoza had planned on evicting the Galafate family.

    Espinoza's car was found hours later in the canal after a passing motorist reported seeing vehicle lights illuminating inside the canal.
