Do you know when that happened? and , is there going to be any services for Ryan and where, I can't find anything about his death.
Jo Tog October 18, 2012 at 03:20 PM
I know them. You would never think that they could do such a thing.
Jo Tog October 18, 2012 at 03:23 PM
Can you leave the subject of oursourcing and unions out of this tragic event. You have lost all credibility with me in regard to your statements. This is a time when the community needs us along with the families of the victim and suspect. Please have some respect.

Are the suspects local pacificans? Are mark furlon and Jeff crum both suspects? Is one of them a resident at the house on Dell?

I agree, saying there's no jobs is an excuse. My daughter is going to college and has found 3 different jobs plus she babysits since graduating. There are plenty jobs if young people really want them.

Thank You, Debbie.

People are talking about two different tragedys . The homicide that took place on Dell is different than the Ryan Haynes incident. In regards to the Dell Road incident Keith didn't live there but Marc Furlon did. As far as Jeff Crum ... I don't know if he is involved but I do know he is known around town as the local Oxy / drug go to person.
Jo Tog October 18, 2012 at 06:51 PM
yes, you are correct ds. No one really knows this creep Crum. But, we all know Mark Furlan and Keith Coffey.
Missy October 18, 2012 at 07:39 PM
And on Jeff's FB he also shows pictures of him growing weed...hmmm good kid...

any connection to the assault on Fairway Dr? Seems to be a lot of assault cases lately in ol'Pacifica.... what about someone being shot in a bar? any truth or is this just a rumor?
J.T October 18, 2012 at 09:12 PM
Jeff crum has nothing to do with the murder of Keith coffe y. I am good friends with both of them. People should be ashamed that they would put Jeffs name in this when there is no evidence behind it. He has made mistakes but to blame him for this is unfair. Your comments will also be considered slander when his nameis cleared
J.T October 18, 2012 at 09:30 PM
That is why Furlan is in custody being charged with the murder and crum has not yet been contacted by police or charged with anything.

No one but blame on him just saying what I heard and if he wasn't involved then how did his name get mixed in it? Either way its for the cops to figure out, not us.
