    " Richard CHACON

    It was 3:30 a.m. on July 25, 1999, when nearly 100 people gathered at The Car Wash, an after-hours nightclub at 1180 West Hastings in Vancouver. Richard Chacon was the manager that night, a 31 year old from Huntingdon Beach, California, who had been living in Vancouver for about three years.

    Richard was a creative, talented guy, who had a short-lived talk show on CFUN radio and was in the process of developing a local television show.

    When a fight broke out between two men, Richard was quick to intervene. He came up behind a blonde-haired man in a Hawaiian shirt, and tried to pry him off of a dark-skinned, possibly black man.

    A shot suddenly rang out and the blonde man doubled over. He had been shot in the stomach. Seconds later, Richard fell to the floor, hit by the same bullet. The first man survived, confined to a wheelchair, but Richard Chacon did not.

    Immediately following the shooting, someone shouted, “My God, Trevor – you just shot someone.” Investigators believe that someone inside the club knows who Trevor is, but so far that have not been able to identify him.

    Richard is sadly missed by his family, who says that he always liked Vancouver, even commenting on the fact that Canadians don’t put up with crime. Clearly, Richard took that to heart."

    Who and where is Trevor?!

    bbm
    Includes video.

    "Suddenly, a shot rang out and the bullet travelled through one man, paralyzing him, and into Chacon.

    Immediately following the shooting, someone shouted, “My God, Trevor, you just shot someone.”

    Fifteen years later police are still looking for Trevor and Chacon’s family is still devastated".

    It is 3:30 am in a club where a rave is still going on. People are already heavily influenced by drugs and alcohol. There is dim lighting and the club is packed. Richard tries to break up a fight and ends up dying in the process.

    Witnesses hear ..."My God, Trevor, you just shot someone." Keep in mind, however, that in the club scene a LOT of people use an alias. The question is ...why shoot a gun at all? Wouldn't that lead one to believe that it was a friend of the individual that was getting beat up - the black man? Another option is they just hated the blonde man in the Hawaiian t-shirt and took that as an opportunity to get rid of him. A third option is it is just some drugged out individual with a gun.

    How is there no video surveillance? This is a night-club in 1999, no reason it didn't have a few cameras running?

    Someone ALWAYS knows ....
