“Just because an adult is in an Important Position like Vice Mayor, Teacher or a Master of Taekwondo, doesn’t mean that they are a Good Person or that they will honor what they say, or be a Decent Human Being.”
Wise words spoken by Julia an 11 year old 6th grader in San Mateo County talking about Foster City elected official Herb Perez who was facing a RECALL effort at the time.
Yesterday I offered Supervisor David Canepa a chance to comment on this article I was working on. He chose not to respond. As many of you know I just recently became aware of the Suspicious Death of Munir Edais a 32 year old Police Officer, Father of two girls, a San Mateo County Resident all his life, a newlywed husband, a son, brother, cousin and friend to many. The Daly City Police Department and the San Mateo County Coroner Robert Faucralt determined almost in a matter of a few minutes that “He Hung Himself” in his Daly City Apartment. How did they conclude this is what happened? It’s simple that is what the new bride told them Case Closed. That was on January 21, 2020, 28 months ago.
One year later David Canepa President of the San Mateo County Board of Supervisors reached out to Munir Edais R.I.P. sister on her instagram account leaving his private phone number saying Call to discuss. The family was thrilled to finally have a high ranking government official make contact with them to help them get the answers they have been fighting so hard to get. They called David Canepa.
Here is what the sister says happened next.
On January 19, 2021, my family and I reached out to supervisor David Canepa, at the time, in hopes of him helping us with our brothers death. My brother, Munir Edais was reported dead on January 21, 2020 by a supposed suicide.
Trying to find some answers answers regarding Munirs death, we reached out to David Canepa. He sent me a private message saying to call him, and left us his phone number. We called him, and got the opposite reaction of what we expected. He was very rude and unsympathetic. He claimed Daly City Police Department had the best investigators and yelled at us saying “what are you guys doing!” He said we need to shut down our instagram page, and rest with the fact that Munir killed himself.
Not what anybody would expect from a Good Person or a Decent Human Being.
There is now a $250,000 REWARD being offered.
