Thankyou Gmommy. I totally missed that update. I had a feeling it was going to turn out that way. /sigh Maybe I hang out here too much. Don't have much hope anymore.

Shouldn't speculate, but the timing of these. Maybe Santa Cruz isn't a safe place for women atm. Wonder if they are connected. Sure hope to hear something soon.

DESPAIR PERVADES REDWOODS
Mystery in the mountains
By Linda Goldston
Mercury News

It was a lot to happen in a small mountain town.

Joanna Asha Veil disappeared after leaving work at the Ben Lomond Market on Sept. 9. The popular 28-year-old cashier was 6 1/2 months pregnant and everybody hoped for the best.

Despair quickly seeped through the redwoods when her body was found Sept. 14, near the end of Love Creek Road, but it still wasn't over for the residents of Ben Lomond. The next day, Michael Patrick McClish, 37, a manager at the market and a friend and co-worker of Veil's, was arrested on suspicion of raping and threatening to kill another employee at the store. Late that night, somebody burned down the library of San Lorenzo Valley High School.

McClish to stand trial, judge rules

By Jennifer Squires
Sentinel staff writer
A judge has ruled there is enough evidence for Ben Lomond resident Michael McClish to stand trial on charges that he sexually assaulted two women.

McClish initially was jailed in September on suspicion he raped, sodomized and threatened the life of a 29-year-old female former co-worker with whom he allegedly had an 18-month affair. In early October, the District Attorney's Office filed six additional counts of forcible rape that stem from a relationship prosecutors say McClish had with a teenage girl between 1989 and 1991.

McClish's defense attorney, Mark Garver, said he plans to challenge Superior Court Judge William Kelsay's ruling on Tuesday. The defense could file a motion asking that another judge review the transcripts from the court proceedings and reconsider Kelsay's decision, Garver said.

At issue is whether the statue of limitations applies in the six counts of forcible rape that allegedly occurred when McClish was in his early 20s and dating the teenage girl. In court, Kelsay acknowledged that the evidence for those charges was thin, but said investigators had met the burden of proof required for a preliminary hearing.

The victim of those alleged crimes, who is now 34 years old, e-mailed the Sheriff's Office after McClish was arrested this fall, sheriff's Sgt. Mario Sulay testified Tuesday. She told investigators she had never reported the alleged rapes to law enforcement officials, Sulay said.

Garver also disputes whether threats McClish allegedly made with a hatchet prior to allegedly sexually assaulting the 29-year-old contributed to the rape.
