The good folks at Entertainment Lighting Services in Sun Valley, California need our thoughts today – actually yesterday when they tweeted about it was the start, and even before that. If you’ve worked in the industry, you know or have worked with ELS. Unfortunately they’re suffering the loss of one of their warehouse team, Danilo Estuerdo Morales. Dilo, as they called him, was shot Monday evening, January 9, trying to help his grandfather, who was being mugged and assaulted by three men. They shot him while they were running away. Dilo was 25. These three scumbags are still at large. If you’re out there and you know something, give the Los Angeles Police Department a call, please. From the LAPD Blog, who already has a post up about Dilo’s murder (EXCELLENT work, LAPD BLOG):
Anyone who knows the whereabouts of the suspect vehicle or the location of the suspects is being asked to notify either Detective Castro or Detective O’Donnell, North Hollywood Homicide Detectives at 818-623-4075. During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247). Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone. All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.” Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “webtips” and follow the prompts.
We’re really sorry to hear of Dilo’s passing. If you read this, take a second and send some good vibes to Dilo’s family and the ELS family out there on the West Coast and across America.
