Gregory Elarms, the longtime friend accused of murdering East Palo Alto community activist David Lewis, could face the death penalty, Steve Wagstaffe, incoming San Mateo County district attorney, said Tuesday. Elarms, 58, was arrested Sunday by San Mateo police for the June 9 shooting death of Lewis in the parking garage at Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo. Related material:

While it's a relief that the killer can be brought to justice, it seems a little off saying it's a "Christmas present the community and the family has been looking for." Finding a missing child, yes, that is a gift, a murderer coming forward who may face the death penalty, I dunno.

I agree this is not a Christmas present to the Lewis family.......why someone would make that statement is beyond me. There are now only more unanswered questions ... [portion removed by Palo Alto Online] What is the truth, the truth is what I want to hear. There are no winners in this tragedy, both families have lost, those of David's & Greg's.....

i dont think a man like my grandfather greg elarms should deserve death penalty or life in prison. i think the police should really look into the case and stop thinking they found the murderer because they dont have enough evidence to accuse my grandfather. just because he turned himself in doesnt mean he did the crime.
