59-year-old Fay Ruth Romesburg is an author of female-empowering erotic literature under the pseudonym F.R.R. Mallory, and she identifies herself as a feminist.

At the end of last year, Rohnert Park Police was notified by an apartment manager reporting suspicious activity leading them to believe that one of the units was being used as a brothel.

Anaheim resident Tarek Hamad was returning home to his pregnant wife and young child before dawn. As 34-year-old Hamad turned his car into the driveway of his apartment complex, he was plowed into by a drunk driver.

18-year-old Jorge Esteban Lunas Martinez was allegedly intoxicated and speeding when he lost control of his car, swerved into oncoming traffic and abruptly pulled into the driveway of the apartment complex where Hamed had just returned home. This caused Martinez to collide with the back of Hamad’s car, and the innocent victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

Hamed and his family moved to America a year ago and he was the sole wage-earner in his household. The sudden catastrophe of his death has left his children without a father, and his wife, who is due to give birth in one month, a young widow and single mother of two.

A 24-year old woman, Vrenda Moreno, was allegedly driving north on South Central Avenue in Los Angeles early Thursday morning when she claims another car cut her off. She crashed into the side of an apartment where a 5-year old boy was sleeping with two other children and his parents. The woman’s car is said to have went through the apartment wall, pinning the father and the boy underneath the wreckage and injuring two other people in the home.

Los Angeles firefighters worked diligently to free the boy and his father from under the car and mounds of debris, according to Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Brian Humphrey. The boy and his father were freed from the debris and taken to a Southern California hospital where the boy later died.

Investigators claim that the driver was driving under the influence of alcohol or driving while intoxicated. She was taken into custody and faces an arraignment this week.
