This young girl witnessed a heinous crime, yet she was able to provide great insight into that fateful day. She may be young, but she’s extremely bright, articulate and courageous.
Fresno, Calif. Police Department Deputy Chief Keith Foster • Regarding a child who escaped a triple murder-suicide. The 7-year-old was able to leave the scene of this bloody crime unharmed. She had stayed the night at the house of her neighbor, Aide Mendez, the woman police say was behind the murder-suicide. The young girl witnessed at least one of the murders; Mendez allegedly shot her two children and also killed her cousin before killing herself. She also shot and stabbed her husband, but he survived the attack and is recovering in a local hospital. What could have caused Mendez to go through with all of that? While we may not know the complete truth, investigators discovered an iPad video recording of Mendez and her cousin smoking methamphetamine hours before the deadly incident. source (via • follow)

The second time I reached him, the way he acted – yes, I was, for a split second I was nervous until I saw the little girl and all fear was out the window after that. I didn’t have no fear. I wasn’t thinking of me no more. I was just thinking we need to get that little girl to safety.
Fresno, Calif. resident Victor Perez • On singlehandedly stopping a known gang member (who was already on felony probation) from kidnapping a young girl. The Amber Alert for Elisa Cardenas, 8, was very close to Perez’s home, and when he saw Gregorio Gonzales driving by in his truck, Perez had his cousin call 911 – and he drove after Gonzales. The fact that Perez managed to stop Gonzales from kidnapping Cardenas verifies the reason the Amber Alert system exists. Great job, Victor. You saved the day. (Gonzales was caught a few hours later by police, by the way, but he let go of Cardenas after Perez stopped him.) source (via)
