Police Officer Munir Edais was found dead in his Daly City apartment 28 months ago. Who knew, I never heard about it until 8 days ago, How about you, when did you learn about it?
What actions did you take to assure the residents of Daly City and San Mateo County that the Police Department you are responsible for conducted a professional Suspicious Death Investigation of Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Officer and Father of two girls on January 21, 2020.
What was your personal response to the family’s Petition to Re-Open the Murder Investigation of a Police Officer/Father and Daly City Resident with more than 25,000 signatures. Did you ever make a Public Comment about it. If Not why didn’t you?
Shawanna Maltbie, Did you ever think to ask Daly City Police Sergeant Keith Mattos a Homicide Dectective of 28 years, These two questions: Did you say that? Yes or No and if the answer was YES, the next question would be What did you mean by “Never seen this much blood on a hanging victim.”
On 25th April 2021, the page posted an alleged quote by Keith Mattos, a sergeant at Daly City Police Department, saying, “In my 28 years as a homicide detective, I have never seen this much blood on a hanging victim.”
Did your Police Department ask/have the wife who made the 911 call at 2:00 AM on January 21, 2020 to take a Polygraph Test to verify if she was being truthful? The reason I ask this question is I am aware of the San Mateo County District Attorney Inspector Rick Decker asking a mother of 2 that I was assisting in filing a criminal complaint against her ex husband in a Family Law Matter, if she would be willing to take a Polygraph Test she said of course took it and passed with flying colors. We had already provided the photos which proved fraud I’m guessing the request was because her ex husband was a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy. He was never asked to take one.
So I do know that Polygraph Tests are sometimes even given to VICTIMS who are simply reporting a crime in SMC.
How long did your Police Department Investigate this Suspicious Death as a potential Homicide?
Shawanna here is the Petition in case you have never heard about it.
I don’t know if you ever signed it, if not please do it right now. I suggest it Never was a Murder Investigation in the first place. You can take care of that.

It all started with this case.

My only experience observing the Hon. Judge Jeffrey R. Finigan was one afternoon I was covering the San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI case. I drove up from Monterey County for the 1:30 PM Court Hearing, I identified myself to the Bailiff and the Court Clerk asked them if I was in the right court for the Sgt Lou Aquino case. They confirmed I was so I sat there for 3 hours until I was the last person for the public there. Judge Finigan asked me what I was there for and the Clerk informed I was there for the Aquino case. He informed me that case was already handled for the day, I asked him if that occurred in the courtroom or in chambers, He responded in Chambers. So time invested to report on the Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino DUI case that one day only, was 4 hours travel plus 3 hours sitting in the Hon. Judge Jeffrey Finigan’s Courtroom equals 7 Hours and there was NOTHING done in front of the Public. It’s not that easy to report on the San Mateo County Courts.
San Mateo County News.com was the first News and Information Service to provide the public with the facts about his arrest on September 14, 2019.
Update 2/23/2020 Still no response from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos or Rosemerry Blankswade PIO for the Sheriff’s Office. Why?
Update 11/4/2019: Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos & PIO Rosemerry Blankswade refuse to respond. Why?

Could you please provide me with that photo or an explanation as to why the Sheriff’s Office does not think they need to.
Can you confirm his Driver’s License has been suspended for refusing the chemical test?
Is he on Administrative Leave or is he on his normal duty?

Update: 10/24/2019 Congratulations to the Palo Alto Daily Post for their Front Page Story on Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquino’s DUI Arrest on September 14, 2019. That is 23 days after the SMCN.com article. They are the only one of 7 Print Media in San Mateo County to inform the public. The San Mateo Daily Journal placed it on the Website version I asked Jon Mays if he published it in print copy he has not responded. Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos and PIO Rosemary Blankswade refuse to even respond to my request for his Booking Photo.
Update 10/21/2019 There is no blood alcohol result because he refused to submit to a chemical test as required by law. This means for the ordinary resident your Drivers License is suspended for 1 year.
Update: 10/17/2019 Sheriff Bolanos and PIO Rosemerry refuse to even respond to my e-mail request for Booking Photo. Why? It’s public information.
Update: 10/02/2019 9:40PM The court appearance date is October 23, 2019
I know when you read the date below you are going to think this is old News and you are correct. I will say that I am the first News Media to inform the public about it, this is an example of a Those Who Matter case. Special Treatment, What the public doesn’t know won’t hurt them etc. No statement from Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, No statement and even more important No Charges by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe, Why?
Steve Wagstaffe informed me this morning 10/02/2019 that his office has not received the case from Redwood City Police Department and that would explain why No Charges if it were true, so I sent RWCP an e-mail. Gary Kirk responded RCPD filed the case with the DA’s Office on September 23rd. On September 27th, we received a request for additional information for prosecution from the issuing DA. You may want to call them back to clarify the information they provided. The DA’s case number is 0811082.
September 14, 2019 The Redwood City Police Department arrested San Mateo County Sheriff Sergeant Luis Dejesus Aquino for DUI last week after he crashed a car (not his) the car belonged to San Mateo County Sheriff Lieutenant Victoria A. O’Brian. Location of arrest was Broadway/Arguello St, which just happens to be where the DSA building is located. The arresting Officers transported him to First Chance in Burlingame where he was refused acceptance reason being he was to “Belligerent”. He was than transported to Maguire Jail where he was booked. He had attended a retirement celebration at the Deputy Sheriff Association (DSA) Building on Broadway Street Redwood City, prior to being arrested. So much for “Friends don’t let Friends Drive Drunk.” or “Let me call an UBER, Lyft or a Cab for you.” Better yet “I’ll drive you home.”
His attorney is Josh Bentley. You might ask why do you need an attorney if No Criminal charges are filed? Who called Mr. Bentley and When?
Redwood City Police did respond to my inquiry of the DUI Arrest of Sergeant Lou Aquino and confirmed it. Thank you RWCPD.
SMC Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos has refused to provide me with the Booking photo. He has remained Silent on Sheriff Sergeant Lou Aquinos’ arrest. Here is what he was saying just two weeks before the arrest.
“Labor Day should be a time for friends and family to come together to enjoy the last days of summer,” said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. “We need commitment from our community members that they’ll keep the streets free of drunk drivers so that everyone can have a safe holiday. This is a campaign to get the message out that drunk driving is illegal and it takes lives. Help us put an end to this senseless behavior,” he said.
The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and NHTSA are reminding citizens of the many resources available to get them home safely. “Drunk driving is not acceptable behavior,” said Sheriff Carlos Bolanos. “It is essential to plan a sober ride home before you ever leave for the party. That’s why, during the Labor Day holiday, we will make zero exceptions for drunk driving. There are just no excuses,” he said.
