No Stone Left Unturned in 1968 Murder Case

What:
Local, State, and Federal Law Enforcement, along with other governmental service providers to dig near a section of the 23 Freeway at the Tierra Rejada overpass in hopes of closing the file on a cold case murder investigation.   

When:
Monday,  October 6, 2008 for up to ten days
6:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Where:
Media vehicles and personnel should stage on the Eastbound shoulder of Tierra Rejada facing east on the portion of roadway just west of the 23 Freeway.

Who:
Vivian Flores, Lead Detective LAPD
James Miller, Captain LAPD
Meredith Burke,  Federal Bureau of Investigations Special Agent
Diane Harris, Detective LASD,
Weston DeWalt, Author and Researcher
Scott Peterson, Ventura County Sheriff’s Department

Representatives from the California Department of Transportation, Ventura County Office of the Medical Investigator.

Why:
With special assistance from Author and Researcher Weston DeWalt, Detective Vivian Flores has followed numerous leads to a small patch of ground near the 23 Freeway at Tierra Rejada Road.  Mack Ray Edwards killed Roger Dale Madison on or about December 14, 1968 and may have buried him while he worked as a bulldozer operator under contract by Caltrans.  Edwards was the most prolific serial killer of children in Los Angeles history.  
      
Detective Flores said, “We know there is little chance that we will find remains.  But there is also a chance, albeit small, that we will find the remains of Roger Dale Madison and perhaps others.”

Live streaming video of portions of the dig will be available by logging on to LAPDTV.org image from the home page.  A large media area has been designated with a view of the dig area.  Please take care not to disturb the plants and trees.  See attached staging map.
