This is a story that I covered while I was at Redondo Beach Patch, and I continued to cover it via my own website at myredondo.com after I was laid off. When the story first broke, my colleague John Schreiber and I were the first reporters at the scene, joined later by Schreiber’s then-fiance, who worked for a competing paper.

I took the photos at a news conference held to announce the reward.

Erick Ortega, who is accused of shooting and killing Bobby Reynolds, was arrested days later in Utah.
