It is good about that he is gonna get that psychiatric evaluation, he where really mentally sick.all his medications disappear from the place where he use to keep them before. I am Herman's fiancee, his girlfrien for 7 years form nom, we where going to get married some time soon. He is really nice person and human being when in the right medication for his problems. I don't really understand why that lady Sharon let my Boyfriend along,together with Electra boyfriend. I didn't know that, he where with that lady Sharon down to Palo Alto.She knew Herman can done something horrible like that. It sounds like to me, she is involved in that crime,she knew about my boyfriend mental illness and she didn't care, about what he can done. she live both of them along in Herman mother house, so she got participation on that.I always refuse when Herman ask to take him down there, when he use to ask me to take him to his mother house, because I had the filling something like that could happens

Maria,

It seems that you have information that could be important in the case. If you have not done it yet, I suggest that you contact the Palo Alto Police Department (I am sure you can find them online) and provide them with all the information that you have and that may be relevant to the case.
