Pot Dealer Who Escaped From OC Jail is Convicted in Gruesome Torture Kidnapping Trial
08/16/2019 8:19pm

A man was convicted Friday in a grisly case of kidnapping and torture that came to light after a deputys mysterious encounter seven years ago with a frightened woman pleading for help in the Mojave Desert northeast of Los Angeles.Hossein Nayeri, 40, was found guilty of kidnapping, torture and extortion. He and two high school friends allegedly abducted and mutilated the owner of a flourishing medical marijuana dispensary. The victims penis was cut of and he was burned with a blow torch as the captors demanded he tell them where he buried $1 million in the Mojave Desert. Twisted: A Story in Six Parts The victim survived and testified at trial.Read the six-part series Twisted Updates: Download the NBCLA App Jurors rejected the charge that Nayeri inflicted great bodily injury on the man, saying essentially he wasnt the one who severed the victims penis.Its difficult to imagine a case more horrific than this one, said Senior Deputy District Attorney Matt Murphy outside court. Without a murder at the end of it this is about as bad as it gets.The former pot dealer is still facing a possible life sentence without the possibility of parole for his convictions on two counts of kidnapping for ransom and single counts of aggravated mayhem, torture and burglary. Sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 11.Nayeris attorney Salvatore Ciulla argued that two other men who Nayeri went to high school with, Kyle Handley and Ryan Kevorkian, orchestrated the kidnapping.This case nothing is as it seems, he said. This man right here, Hossein Nayeri, did not do it.Handley was sentenced to life in prison without the possibility of parole for his part in the case. Kevorkian is awaiting trial.The case goes back nearly seven years.Three masked men armed with a shotgun beat the victim while he slept in his Newport Beach home on Oct. 2, 2012, prosecutors said. His roommate was also kidnapped at gunpoint. She was not hurt.The victims name was being withheld because hes a victim of a sex crime.He was beaten so bad that he defecated in his pants, prosecutors said.Then they dragged him down the stairs, hitting his head on each step, thunk, thunk, thunk, Senior Deputy District Attorney Heather Brown told jurors.They continued beating him in the back of a van, hitting him with a rubber hose, burning him with a torch and shocking him with a Taser, while driving to the Mojave Desert.Along the way, they demanded to know where the money was, which he denied having, Brown said. He even offered tens of thousands of dollars in cash from his business, but it wasnt enough, Brown said.When they stopped in the Mojave Desert, they dragged him out of the van, poured bleach on him to kill any DNA evidence, cut off his penis and left him for dead, Brown said.The victims roommate managed to free herself from the zip ties around her ankles and flagged down a deputy who happened to see her on the side of a road while he was on his way to work.After the crime, Nayeri fled to his home country of Iran, which has no extradition treaty with the United States, Brown said.Authorities were able to lure him out of the country using Nayeris ex-wife Cortney Shegerian, who got him to leave Iran to visit her and his sister in Spain.Shegerian, who authorities alleged was involved in helping Nayeri plan the kidnapping, has agreed to testify in exhange for immunity from prosecution, prosecutors said.Nayeri was arrested as he got off a plane in the Czech Republic on a layover to Spain and eventually was extradited to Orange County.While awaiting trial in this case in 2016, Nayeri grabbed headlines when he broke out of an Orange County jail and recorded it on contraband cellphone that his lawyer provided to NBC4.Nayeri was captured in San Francisco and again returned to Orange County custody.In a jailhouse interview, Nayeri denied the kidnapping and torture charges and told NBC4 his innocence will be proven in court.Photo Credit: NBCLA

How Greta Thunberg Shifted World's Gaze to Climate Change
08/17/2019 5:49am

Staring through a swarm of photographers and television crews, self-described introvert Greta Thunberg took the stage at a Swiss university last week,NBC News reports, to pointedly reiterate a message that has captured the attention of leaders and like-minded young women around the globe: The world must take drastic action now to avert ecological and civilizational collapse.We know that our future is at risk, the small, soft-spoken 16-year-old Swede tells journalists at the start of a weeklong youth summit at the University of Lausanne. We would love to go back to school and continue with our everyday lives, but as crucial as this situation is, as serious as this situation is, we feel like we must do something about this now.Thunberg whose central point is that humanity must immediately reduce greenhouse gas emissions that have unrelentingly increased since the start of the industrial revolution, resulting in global warming is the driving force behind a movement that has seen more than 2 million teens around the world take part in Fridays for Future school strikes against climate change.On Wednesday, she set off from Britains shores on a monthslong journey she is sailing to avoid flying that will take her to a U.N. summit on climate change in New York in September, and the COP25 conference in Santiago, Chile, in December.Photo Credit: Kirsty Wigglesworth/AFP/Getty Images

Accidents Up in Road Diet
08/15/2019 5:16pm

By:Kirt Ramirez Despite the Long Beach Police Department stating the number of reported accidents on the Broadway corridor has gone down since the road diets debut in mid-April, a prominent community leader has come forward with documentation saying otherwise.Robert Fox, who entered the 2nd District City Council race to unseat Jeannine Pearce after Broadways road diet disaster was unveiled, gave a press conference outside the downtown police station Aug. 5.He brought along dozens of signed affidavits from Broadway business owners and residents who witnessed car accidents on the corridor, have seen the aftermath or were victims themselves.Fox handed the LBPD 59 affidavits for 62 auto accidents. Affidavits testifying to near-misses and people tripping over the black street bumpers were not included in the packet.The result, he said, shows automobile crashes on Broadway have increased exponentially.During a previous press conference with the council person of the 2nd District, the impression was that accidents had gone down 20 percent since the road diet was configured, he said. This current release of documents counters that claim with real results and eyewitness accounts of accidents.Fox noted the LBPD does not typically respond to minor car accidents and therefore many collisions go unreported. But just because an accident isnt recorded, doesnt mean it didnt happen.This press conference is to point out the truth of this corridors experience, he said. This should lay to rest any doubt that the road diet is a failure.He added, The safety of citizens is our first responsibility and priority. If we believe that, then Broadway has failed to meet that standard and must be reconfigured for the safety of all.Fox, who has lived in his house on Broadway near Temple Avenue since 1992, said, I can personally attest to the fact that I have witnessed more accidents in front of my house than I have seen in 30 years.Fox organized a July 15 rally at Broadway and Cherry Avenue where about 100 residents and business owners protested the road diet, which stretches from Redondo to Alamitos Avenues. A traffic lane each way was removed and curbside bike lanes were added to both sides of the street, which protesters said makes for a crammed, unsafe roadway that endangers lives.And reduced, inconvenient parking hurts businesses, they said.Local media covered the event and the topic made headlines.Councilwoman Pearce, whose district includes a large portion of Broadway, asked City Manager Pat West to arrange a press conference.On July 22 a week after the protest city officials briefed members of the media at City Hall. At a conference table, Pearce sat with West, Deputy Fire Chief Jim Rexwinkel, LBPD Commander Rudy Komisza and City Engineer Alvin Papa. Deputy Director of Public Works Diko Melkonian also attended.Mayor Robert Garcia, an advocate of making Long Beach more bicycle friendly, was not present.West explained the city adopted the Vision Zero Plan, which aims to eliminate traffic fatalities and serious injuries citywide by 2026. He said adding road diets, traffic circles, roundabouts and traffic calming things like yellow, white and green bollards, helps to slow traffic and makes streets safer.Vision Zero is gaining momentum in large cities nationwide and in Europe.This isnt just happening in Long Beach, he said. Were a big fan of Vision Zero, and were in that.According to visionzeronetwork.org, Vision Zero is a strategy to eliminate all traffic fatalities and severe injuries, while increasing safe, healthy, equitable mobility for all. First implemented in Sweden in the 1990s, Vision Zero has proved successful across Europe and now its gaining momentum in major American cities.West said he understands change is difficult and people need time to adjust.Were on a listening tour, so were continuing to listen were tweaking stuff, he said. Were listening to community input from the various community groups, residents, businesses, and were going to continue to work with them and tweak stuff.West said people can expect other minor arterial roads in the city to undergo traffic calming changes in the future.Long Beach adheres to a climate action plan to reduce the carbon footprint and the city encourages living healthier lifestyles and being more active.We want people out of their cars and to have the ability to walk and ride bikes all over the place, he said.Phase two of the Broadway project will involve planting trees.As of July 1, West said cars parked on Broadway during street sweeping hours stopped receiving tickets. Only the curbside bike lanes are swept now with special machines. The parking spaces several feet from the curb out in the street will not be swept.Tickets will continue for cars parked more than two hours on non-sweeping days, where posted.Even though Broadway was designed to slow traffic, Deputy Fire Chief Rexwinkel said fire response times are stable.Ive looked at the data as many different ways as I can over the past five years, he said. I see stable response times to all the areas Ive looked at. I see no increase in response times to any of the areas impacted or affected by the road diet.LBPD Commander Komisza said:To echo Chief Rexwinkels comments, theres no data thats present that would indicate an increase in emergency response service from the police department perspective.Komisza, reading from a prepared statement, added We have evaluated statistics. LBPD has been tracking reported collisions along the Broadway Corridor between Alamitos and Redondo and we have seen a decrease in accidents since the recent changes and that is specific to between mid-April, when the changes took place, to June 30, 2019.Collisions along Broadways east-west corridor are down approximately 20 percent from the past five-year average. So I think thats a notable thing to talk about.Mid-April to June 30, 2019, there have been 19 reported collisions on the Broadway Corridor involving one pedestrian, one bicyclist, four DUIs, five involved parked cars. Of the 19, only nine can be directly attributed to the east-west corridor. The remaining 10 involve vehicles traveling north or south at intersections.From 2015 to 2019, the average number of collisions for the same time period was 11.A reporter asked point blank: What about calls for serviceAfter pausing, Komisza responded, Calls for service, I dont have that data with me.She asked the question because regardless of whether police respond to Broadway or take a report, looking at the calls for help for each of the past five years would show if more people are calling 911.Under the California Public Records Act, the Beachcomber requested the calls for service data as well as collisions for each of the past five years for a comparison but only was given the current year.Councilwoman Pearce said, I would encourage all constituents and all business owners to file a police report any time they see an incident. As stated previously, we dont know what we dont know.Pearce added, I will consistently be asking PD every couple weeks to give us the data on Broadway and if we see the corridor is not being as safe as we had hoped it will be, that well have changes.Video of the conference is at LBReport.com.Like many large cities, the LBPD has to prioritize calls.LBPDs Media Relations Detail explained through email:Typically a non-injury or minor traffic accident is a civil matter and those involved are advised to contact their insurance companies. However, if there is an unlicensed driver or the accident is suspected to be the result of a DUI, officers will respond to the scene to take a report.Meanwhile, more than 1,000 petition signatures against the road diet have been collected.Candidate Fox, a real estate broker, who serves as executive director of the Council of Neighborhood Organizations CONO for Long Beach and is president of the Broadway Corridor Association, has retained an attorney for a possible lawsuit against the city for Broadways reconfiguration.kirtbeachcomber.newsCategory: News

LB Exchange Now Open for Business
08/15/2019 5:14pm

By:Steve Propes Two years ago, for all intents and purposes, there was no McGowen Street in Long Beach. Now McGowen has an active Main Street vibe, diners and shoppers filling the slant parking spaces and sidewalk area at noon, most every weekday off the 3800 block of Lakewood Boulevard, which is where McGowen enters Long Beach Exchange LBX.In January 2017, Beachcomber reporter, the late Sean Belk, first presented a word picture of the proposed LBX. The new shopping center will feature three distinct shopping zones, expected to work seamlessly together to create a singular experience for locals and visitors alike. The project finished in about two and a half years.The Whole Foods 365 opened in fall 2018, the Hangar opened about six months ago. LBX also sponsors community events like National Pet Day on Saturday, Aug. 24 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. at Pet Smart. A note of caution, though. while animals are allowed throughout LBX, they are not allowed inside The Hangar, one of three zones with names inspired by aviation lingo, McGowens Approach, The Landing and The HangarLBX.The Landing is a grand-scaled 1.25-acre central plaza with drought-tolerant vegetation, a reflective water feature and commemorative art and historical timeline installations. According to one merchant, on weekends, this grassy area near the parking lot is loaded with kids.When partially opened in spring 2018, the LBX had 28 businesses. As of early August 2019, there are 36 businesses, including 12 vendors inside The Hangar. In an effort to create balance, there are 20 restaurants and 15 retail storefronts.Not every business survived, but the two lapses, Orchard Supply Hardware and the controversial Yellow Fever fast food inside Whole Foods 365, both closed down all their operations outside their opening at LBX.Coming soon eateries include Wahoos, ReMix Kitchen Bar, Plancha Latin Kitchen and Panini Kabob Grill, with no grand opening date announced.Dining opportunities range from fine dining to The Hangars bus-your-own-table.The 908 opened in June 2019. Described by partner Ciaran Gough as elevated American cuisine. A resident of Long Beach for 16 years, Gough has a background in the grocery industry and setting up quirky dining spots in Austin, Portland and Denver. The 908 offers from several genres, steak, prime rib, lobster roll and the ever-popular poke bowl. The star is protein, then produce, said Gough, who has just partnered with a local gardener to supply some produce.As distinctive as The 908 food is the interior dcor. We use as many Long Beach businesses as we could, said Gough. With IDA as architect, the walls are covered with iconic architectural paintings from all over the city such as the Farmers and Merchants Bank, the NuPike, Press-Telegram and the Villa Riviera. Not noted is the Queen Mary. Of CSULB art students who submitted work, Gough selected a few pieces from two. The mural is by Matthew OConnell, the smaller south wall paintings are by Riley White.Visitors entering a 16,800-square-foot The Hangar are greeted by a vintage airport arrival/departure board displaying the names of the various vendors. In the center is a large dining area, food stalls along the east and west walls, lots of international cooking from Turkish to Mexican and many cultures in-between. The food storefronts just to the south were previously the only game in Douglas Park.Ive tried most of the places inside The Hangar, said one LBX regular. Amoricito is really good tacos and Mexican food Jaybirds is a hot chicken place that just opened. I hate spicy food the spicy one is hot. Blue Bowl just opened up serving customized acai, like a smoothie, you can add toppings.On a McGowen Street corner, Georgias Restaurant is operated by family members of Gretchen Shoemaker, who specialize in southern cooking.Shoemakers daughter, Nika Shoemaker-Machado, said the first Georgias opened at the Anaheim Packing District in June 2014. Georgias was named after George Shoemaker, the late husband of professional caterer, Gretchen Shoemaker, who aimed to translate her skill at southern dishes to opening a restaurant. Gretchen, called Nana by the staff, visits each kitchen in each location once a week to check on the business.The most popular entre is the fried chicken, which combines two influences: Gretchens cornbread crust and her Brazilian husbands buttermilk. Among other offerings are a half dozen po-boys with fillings like catfish, shrimp or spicy andouille.Comparing the customer demographic, Shoemaker-Machado said Anaheim draws an international crowd, thanks largely to Disneyland, while the new McGowen Street location draws community members.Shoemaker-Machado has definite plans to expand, possibly franchise in the not too distant future. One of the questions she, her husband or her mother is often asked, Are you from the southTruthfully the answer must be yes: South Orange County.stevebeachcomber.newsCategory: News
