Effort to win hearts, minds
STERLING – Jesus Torres died in his home around Valentine's Day, but no one noticed. The police discovered his body in his west-end mobile home in early March. One neighbor wondered why Torres, in his 40s, hadn't used his pickup truck in weeks, but she saw others knock on his door with no answer. She figured he wasn't there. It was only after Torres' brother started inquiring that police went in the home. For Sterling Mayor Skip Lee, the situation was "beyond sad."
