Tuesday night, I stood in the air freshener aisle at Target, just staring and wondering, "What would Linda buy?" The true story of Linda Jacobs, who died alone in her Monterey apartment—except for a decades-old, mummified corpse of a woman believed to be her mother.
Francesca “Linda” Jacobs sat on her living room sofa, her head resting on a cushion and her feet almost reaching the floor. The front door to her second-story apartment near Dennis the Menace Park was cracked open just wide enough to let Reynoldo, a little neighborhood cat, come and go as he pleased.

What a completely obnoxious response from the Trib employee. Middle class people have more of a paper trail? Lazy reporting abounds.

Fourth fatal officer-involved shooting by Salinas Police in 2014.
After Frank Alvarado was released from prison in July 2013, he said he searched on Facebook for the man he had tried to kill. He found him and apologized.

Weekly photographer Nic Coury took a vacation day to shoot the Giants parade for the Associated Press. I told him if he didn't get me a shot of Barry, he shouldn't bother coming back.
