I'm sure someone saw them bringing the garbage can on BART through the west dublin station.

I'm sorry, but maybe we can concentrate on the main topic? Three people, including 13-year-old girl, were murdered during one month in our town. Another victim was killed in a hit-and-run. Do you still feel your children are safe and you can joke about police?

My point is that the Pleasanton police expend too much resource on MINOR speeding violations at a time when serious crime in Pleasanton is undergoing a big increase. Sorry that was too deep for folks like Trevor Tooze.

This is horrible beyond words BUT the title of the article is worse - can you please just say "found" instead of "stuffed" - this is someone's child whether they're adult or not. Please have some respect for the victim.

Amazing...we are worried about accurate reporting by using the word stuffed? .....and they change it???? Resident- a word that is accurate should be left as is so the facts can be reported and your gentile little world may be disturbed. This world is cruel...even in Ptown. Perhaps you should honor the poor victim by educating yourself and anyone else who thinks like you. You have the ability to read the news or not...if the story disturbs you don't read it.

If my loved one was stuffed into a garbage can and found I would damn well want it reported a rarely so when the suspect is caught the facts are accurate....who knows and sensitive misguided loser like you may be on the suspects jury. Good luck in life...may your glass dome never be cracked.

Whether stuffed, crammed, packaged, fitted into ... doesn't it really depend on the size of the trash can and that of the body?

Similarly, was the body found, discovered, espied, located, stumbled upon, bumped into, etc. ... is this not a matter of the intentional state of he/she/they who found, discovered, espied, etc?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
