I agree we should be informed if any foul play was involved. I have a daughter and we will be out on Halloween, but I am concerned about our safety they should at least keep the local residence informed, I live in the area just down the hill from that park. The family of the lost man will be in my prayers.

My property butts up to the park. The city just let the park go to hell. Now look what we have. The gangs and druggies have taken over. Graffiti broken glass. This is a shame. The citizens of Corona deserve better. Clean the park up and patrol it.

This was a beautiful park. Why has the city stopped maintaining it? Now it is full of trash and dry weeds and dead people.

I'm really sorry to hear of this, as I am moving to the area next month. Can anyone tell me where not to live? Where is this park located, and what apartment complexes are safe? How is Waterstone, Marquessa or Deerwood? I'm tranferring from Chicago and working in Ontario and sometimes in Poway. I thought along 15 was ok south of Magnolia, but how is north of 91 along hwy 15? Thanks. Any help would be appreciated.

That man and his family will be in my prayers. Unfortunately, anything goes in Corona.. The lost youth run this town. Nothing but drugs and illegal activities. No good has come from our city in many many years. I'm born and raised in Corona. I can't wait to escape here. I am a young female I do not go anywhere alone. The system failed me while in school with a predator that almost took my life. Later, it failed my entire family. With a murder we suffered.. No justice or closure was brought to our family. Please beware of your surroundings, plan to keep safe and never lose sight of your children.

The Corona City Council gave up on Griffin Park a few years back deliberately letting it fall into extreme disrepair. The park is now a ghetto embarrassment impacting property values. The city said they had no money for parks, but expanded other parks in the city. Complaints fell on deaf ears.

While police have not said if it was a transient death of natural causes, or a homicide, they dedicated dozens of police employees to securing the scene and the preliminary investigation at huge expense. It appeared that they are investigating a murder.

The surrounding area residents are outraged at the city letting the park turn into a no mans land. I'm a homeowner in Corona since 95, and I seriously am thinking of moving out of Corona.

Perhaps the unfortunate death of a human being is what is needed to get the city council to act.

Get real? I hope your cousin isn't brutally stabbed to death and left to die. If you have a daughter, I hope she isn't stalked and threatened to be brutally murdered because someone is infatuated by her. That's putting it simple. Get real? Stop crying? Tell the family members of the 3 bodies that were found this year to stop crying. How dare you. If your family is every struck with murder or threatened. Member your words and don't shed a tear.
