New Twists to Calif. Double-Murder Mystery
ABC News ^ | Jan. 20, 2014 | DAISHA RILEY

A chilling discovery – and recently-released emergency dispatch audio – offer new twists into a double-murder mystery that has baffled San Diego police.

Gianni Belvedere, 24, his fiancée Ilona Flint, 22, and his little brother Salvatore, 22, visited a San Diego shopping mall on Dec. 23. Early Christmas Eve morning, Ilona and Salvatore were found shot in their car outside the mall. Both would die from their wounds.

Before she died, Flint managed to call 911. Newly-released emergency dispatch audio identifies a potential suspect at the scene, someone who “possibly left in a 2008/2011 dark gray Honda Civic four-door.”

Gianni Belvedere – who has not been named a suspect in the case – hasn’t been seen since.

This past weekend, nearly a month after the shootings, Belvedere’s green Camry was found about 100 miles away with a man’s body inside the trunk. Police have yet to identify the body.

I can make a quite reasonable guess.

...and his little brother Salvatore, 22...

I'm sure he was the "little brother" when one was eight and the other was six, but at 24 and 22?

I went back recently looking at articles written in newspapers in the 1880s/1890s. It was an odd experience, which I would encourage folks to occasionally do and realize the vast difference in descriptive analysis.

There are two things that you tend to notice with journalism of that era. First, they write fifty-word sentences with ease. You could easily find yourself on a fourteen-line paragraph, which is simply one long sentence. It was accepted in the day as normal.

The second thing you notice...is a deep detailed explanation over things. Vivid imagery...details of what people wore to a court trial...opinions by various witnesses....comments by some ten-year old kid....etc. You don’t get detailed explanations today. Someone packs up a twenty-two line story in a neat and tidy package. There’s maybe three basic facts in such a story....that’s it.

For this particular California murder story? It’s a lousy report....I admit.

seems to me that journalists today get press releases and then add a word or two here and there... that is it... i do not think they really do any investigating on their own before they publish the article... seems there are few editors or proofreaders these days who ensure the quality and accuracy of the stories...
