So here is a kind of serious question. And I never ask kind of serious questions except when I absolutely have to do it. So you know. Has Bailey Canyon Wilderness Park begun to take on certain morbid and frightening aspects, especially when it comes to people trying to do themselves in?
I am only saying this because there have now been two suicide attempts - one successful, one nearly so - in that park over the last 15 months. A place where suicides, or at least overt, public versions, have now found a home is Sierra Madre.
The following comes from the Pasadena Star News (link):
Here is how the City of Sierra Madre released that information on its Facebook page. Note that while the Pasadena Star News did not include the victim's name, this report did.
Back on April 24, 2014, we picked up on a story published by the now vanished Los Angeles Register. A paper we miss. Here is how they reported another Bailey Canyon Wilderness Park tragedy.
The Los Angeles Register article is no longer available on the Internet, so I cannot supply you with a link.
So why is Bailey Canyon Park, and not let's say Goldberg Park, the place where these things happen?
One more thing
I received the following e-mail from a resident earlier this week.
FYI, last night at 925 Singing Wood Dr. in Arcadia, there was a huge party with really loud music. My daughter and granddaughter heard the music at 10:30P and drove around until they found the house. Loud, DJ using th "f" word. The cops came and just sat there. The party continued. My daughter went by today and the house is basically empty. The house has been on and off the market. Owned by people from out of town and don't live in it. The internet party has now come to us locally! It's a little too close.
Anyone know why the Arcadia PD chose to do nothing?
