    Wow!!! an honest to goodness murder in montura! I guess a real cop showed up before the racketeer vice brigade was able to make it all nicely go away. You know there is no organized crime in Montura.
    Hey! everyone knows who runs the place and what is going on.

    Montura is full of people that have nothing. Some are sick- some are not. It is also full of people that have nothing yet are active operating Chop shops, Marijuana growhouses, dealing in cocaine, Meth, stolen property, land fraud, embezlement, racketeering, perjury Etc... Even the people that have something act and look like they have nothing. Sometimes these "poor people" are cruising around with bundles of thousands and thousands of dollars to pay for dope. I am not saying that this fellow was up to something but either he or the perp/s that did it to him obviously were. - oh yeah lets add murder to the above list.
    Obviously this person did not have the ability to protect himself.
    The folks that run the place actively want to keep law enforcement out of montura. Since they allegedly have their own pro-criminal protection squad made up of drunks, drug adicts,perjurers, stalkers, and felons.
