by LA1 News

   LA1 News has verified that Los Angeles Fire Department responders arrived at 8:00 a.m. yesterday to Pasadena Avenue, just east of Carlota Boulevard, and confirmed the death of a man hanging from a tree with a rope strung around his neck. The Coroner's Office arrived shortly thereafter and removed the body on that Sunday morning without much notice. The official LAFD version of this incident, in the Sycamore Grove area of Northeast LA, was that the man was "depressed" and his death was a suicide. The name has not yet been released. End of story, right? Not so fast.

Former Eddie's Jr. Market to Become 7-11 Convenience Store

by LA1 News

   Every Franklin High School student knows the spot well. The liquor store at the corner of Avenue 54 and York Boulevard called "Eddie's Jr. Market" was a destination for many on their way to "Stoner Park" or a ditching party, or just stopping by on the way home to grab a snack. In 1995 it was purchased by an elderly couple who changed the name to "Carl's Liquor and Jr. Market." Known for their hospitality and kindness, credit was given to local families and cheap prices contributed to the continued popularity of the spot. Another family member, Joe, ran "Mario's Liquor" just down the street and is known by longtime residents as a super-cool and kind store owner.
