November 14, 2013 (San Diego) – Four bodies have been found buried in shallow graves in the desert at  Victorville ;  Missing Persons of America reports that a family member has confirmed that  two of the bodies have been confirmed to be Joey and Summer McStay.  Two other bodies discovered have not yet been identified, but may be those of their young children, Joseph and Gianni.

The Fallbrook family vanished in February 2010, prompting an intensive search and national media coverage. 

“The news has hit me hard.  I wondered for three years where they went, but I never ever thought anything like this,” said Jerrie Dean, founder of Missing Persons of America and host of the “Missing” segment on East County Magazine’s radio show.

LT. BRUGOS, HEAD OF SHERIFF'S HOMICIDE UNIT, TO RETIRE MARCH 30

 

March 18, 2011 (San Diego) -- His phone rings in the middle of the night. He works around the clock tracking down killers. Now after 29 years on the job, Lt. Dennis Brugos is trading in his badge for the laid-back lifestyle of a retiree. His last day is on March 30th.

 

Lt. Brugos came face-to-face with many horrendous crimes during his time on the force. His work is difficult, but he says nothing is more gratifying than bringing a killer to justice and closure to families who have lost loved ones.
