Former Sheriff Deputy Juan p. Lopez in Court Today 9AM Courtroom 2G

By Michael G. Stogner

Juan P. Lopez

I have said for almost 8 years now that the San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Juan P. Lopez Criminal Case is the Most Exciting Legal Case I have ever seen. It is a Political Prosecution, a Retaliation Prosecution, It involves ALL levels of San Mateo County Government coming together to cause severe harm to a San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy who made the mistake of Running for Sheriff in 2014.

Notice how none of the Newspapers are covering this case, a case that started with 100% False Charges.

What do you think should happen to the DDA’s who brought False Charges against a Sheriff Deputy?

I think they should be arrested charged, brought to trial, offered NO Plea and let a Jury decided their fate.

I will be attending this mornings hearing in Person because Hon. Judge Joseph Scott has ordered NO ZOOM Service for the Juan P. Lopez case.

Juan Lopez has always said if this can happen to me, it can happen to anybody. He is right.

Time to Audit the case, it started off with a LIE.

Welcome to San Mateo County

Shoshana Friedman Diengott in Court Today 1:30 PM Courtroom 6A

By Michael G. Stogner

Another San Mateo County Family Law Case to watch is the Shoshana Diengott Case. What makes this Family Law Case stand out is the Cooperation between the Attorney Steven Montalvo, San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office and the San Mateo County District Attorneys Office in causing 3 Criminal Charges for violating a DV Restraining Order. Between Shoshana and her someday ex Husband over 100 phone calls were made to the Moss Beach Sheriff Substation. That Fact right there should have been a Huge RED FLAG to everyone involved that there is a much bigger problem here.

Munir Edais R.I.P. Family Supporters want Daly City Manager Shawnna Maltbie and others Fired.

By Michael G. Stogner

Shawnna Maltbie

San Mateo County News.com held three ZOOM meetings last night open to the Public with no pre registering and nobody muted to discuss the Daly City Police Department’s behavior on January 21, 2022. In other words, an AUDIT of the DCPD actions compared to the Daly City Police Department Death Investigations Policy. These 3 Zoom sessions were very productive, one thing I had not considered is the 6 hour time difference for people in the U.K. I will now hold a series of 3 meetings starting at 12:00 Noon San Mateo County Time.

A great question for the Daly City Elected Officials and Shawnna Maltbie is: Did the Daly City Police Department ever consider the remote possibility of Homicide or Suspected Homicide?

Daly City Police Department Death Investigations Policy

344.2.3 Death Cases
Death investigations require specific investigation methods depending on circumstances and should be handled in accordance with the Death Investigations Policy. The handling officer should notify and apprise a supervisor of the circumstances surrounding the incident to determine how to proceed. The following cases shall be appropriately investigated and documented using the approved report: (a) Sudden or accidental deaths. (b) Suicides. (c) Homicide or suspected homicide

On the morning of January 21, 2020 at 1:59 AM Munir Edais wife of 6 months called San Mateo County 911 Dispatch to report “He had hung himself”

Daly City patrol officer Lorena Reyes was the first to arrive on the scene a few minutes later. She met the wife who had blood on her hands and clothing and went inside the apartment were the wife of 6 months said “Why would he do this?” “He hung himself.”

The wife of 6 months also told patrol officer Lorena Reyes that there is a Nanny Camera in Bedroom #2 where Munir Edais supposedly hung himself.

The wife of 6 months also told patrol officer Lorena Reyes that Munir Edais was a Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Officer.

There was no suicide note.

Here are some things the Daly City Police Department should have done.

Suspicious circumstances; possible homicide. Unattended death, physician not in attendance, within last 30 days.
DCPD Investigating officer didn’t document whether or not she asked this very important question -goes to her competency, training & experience.
Should have:
searched the residence for additional victims only
frozen & secured the scene (residence)
removed the wife from the scene
prepared an affidavit seeking a search warrant for the residence
requested the wife voluntarily surrender her described stained clothing for exam o if she refused, obtained a search warrant for same
requested the wife voluntarily provide a buccal specimen for DNA exam o if she refused, obtain a search warrant for same
requested wife to voluntarily submit to a physical exam & photographing of her person if she refused, obtain a search warrant for same
examine the death scene & residence for blood evidence, using a Woods (ultraviolent) lamp
examine toilets, sinks, bathtub, and shower for blood evidence, to include their respective P-traps
documented where was belt, the one assumed to be the ligature, was upon the officer’s arrival
attempted to identify who this belt belonged to and documented its description to include its size
the officer should have seized the belt and preserved it for forensic exam for DNA
the on-duty DCPD supervisor should have been notified of the totality of circumstances by the officer and detectives summoned, to conduct a follow-up investigation
wife should have been asked to voluntarily go the DCPD’s station for a comprehensive recorded interview
Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) record and all DCPD radio traffic for the event should have be gotten
Wife should have been asked to voluntarily surrender both the victim’s and her cellphone and a search warrant sought for the forensic examination of both
DCPD Investigator should have attended autopsy/examination A search warrant sought for the Call Detail and Geo-location records for both described cellphone phones should have been sought
The Apartment complex should have been checked for any video surveillance records Was front door to residence locked, during event? If so, how was this established?
Under circumstances, the County’s Homicide Investigation Protocol should have been implemented
Wife stated the two had been arguing and refused to disclose about what
Wife stated, during preliminary investigation, the husband had no medical condition or history of depression and or suicidal ideation
Officer observed blood, on both the victim and wife’s hands and shirt
Victim suspected wife of infidelity
Officer observed victim’s hands to have green color/tint
No suicide note
Victim was a Peace Officer
Wife should have been asked to provide a timeline of the day’s events
Who were the wife’s boyfriend(s), particularly the one identified as her having seen, one week prior to her engagement to the decedent?
Wife would have had motive & opportunity.
DCPD Investigating Officer observed blood and green tint (color) to victim’s hands
Crime lab should have been summoned and, at a minimum, the death scene thoroughly examined, documented, and photographed
What did the examination of the surveillance camera records reveal? Had any of the cameras utilized remote storage -cloud, etc.? It was mentioned the victim utilized an application in connection with a surveillance camera.
Victim (husband) obviously suspected infidelity, on the wife’s (Eman’s) part ergo the surveillance cameras in their bedroom & living room
The couple’s internet service provider should have been identified and browsing history sought
The couple’s respective email history & records should have been sought
No mention, in DCPD’s report, of any suicide note being present and or sought
No mention of any computers being present at the residence and or sought and examined
No mention of the two daughters being interviewed; seeing how they stayed with dad, at his residence, every other week, information they might provide about his state of mind would seem particularly relevant & material
No mention of the ex-wife being interviewed: seeing how she most likely would have had frequent contact with the victim regarding child care and exchanges information she might provide about his state of mind would seem particularly relevant & material
What was the victim’s work scheduled, in the period leading up to his death?
What had been the child visitation schedule been, in the period leading up to his death?
Was a formal search of the victim’s locker, at work, conducted? Was an inventory of what had been present inside the locker done?
Text and SMS message records sought and examined
The type and model of the wife and victim’s cell phones
Bank account & credit card records/examinations -purchases, etc.?
Life insurance coverage/policy(s) coverage, payout examination
Birth certificate of Eman’s child -did it list the victim as the father?
Was the described belt and the victim’s clothing examined for blood/DNA evidence?
Had victim installed any monitoring application(s) on wife’s cellphone?
What is San Mateo County Coroner’s Office policies and procedures?
Blood toxicology screen should not be relied upon.
A Gas Chromatography/Mass Spectrometry (GC/MS) examination should be utilized to identify foreign substances, the Victim’s blood.
Typical blood toxicology utilizes panels, looking for typical common substances, in testing the blood. It will not capture/identify exotic drugs/substances.

Shawnna Maltbie if you don’t want to do the heavy lifting you should RESIGN.

David Canepa for Congress, I say NO Way.

By Michael G. Stogner

SMC Supervisor David Canepa

San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa has been Fundraising and is a current Candidate for Congress. That is what he likes to do raise money and promote himself. He also was a Councilman and Mayor of Daly City, He also worked for Leland Yee, who we all know spent time in Prison. Over the years I have seen him many times ignoring the Families and Concerned Citizens of San Mateo County making simple requests of him as their Supervisor. Remember he is the one who took an OATH.

Very recently I became aware of the Suspicious Death of a Healthy 32 year old Father of two girls, a Daly City Resident, and a Los Gatos/Monte Sereno Police Officer named Munir Edais, who died sometime between January 19-21, 2020. As you can see that Suspicious Death occurred 28 MONTHS ago.

I have been requesting San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa to simply sign this Families Petition for a Special Meeting by the Daly City Elected Officials and the City Manager to AUDIT the actions of their Daly City Police Department on the morning of January 21, 2020. This Audit would simply compare the actions against the Daly City Police Policy.

Daly City Police Department Death Investigations Policy

344.2.3 Death Cases
Death investigations require specific investigation methods depending on circumstances and should be handled in accordance with the Death Investigations Policy. The handling officer should notify and apprise a supervisor of the circumstances surrounding the incident to determine how to proceed. The following cases shall be appropriately investigated and documented using the approved report: (a) Sudden or accidental deaths. (b) Suicides. (c) Homicide or suspected homicide

Supervisor David Canepa has refused to sign this Petition. WHY?

This is just one reason I say NO WAY on Canepa for Congress.

Please sign the Petition

San Mateo County Residents, I invite you to sign this Petition. Munir Edais was a Police Officer.

By Michael G. Stogner

How did San Mateo County Residents not know about this!

This is Breaking News, San Mateo County News.com is first to report about this Very Suspicious Death of a 32 year old father of two girls who was a Daly City resident and a Police Officer for Los Gatos/Monte Sereno. For some unknown reason the 7 Print Media didn’t think the 760,000 residents would want to know about this. Nothing to see here.

Look at the date we are talking about, January 2020 that is 28 months ago.

Wake up San Mateo County

Here is the Petition

How to Spell Heinz Puschendorf.

By Michael G. Stogner

Here is just one example of why I suggest the Voters of San Mateo County practice how to spell HEINZ PUSCHENDORF when they make their final choice for SMC Sheriff.

I drove up from Monterey County to be with San Mateo County Sheriff Deputy Heinz Puschendorf at the Board of Supervisor Meeting where he asked the County to finance a recount of Measure W.

I have never seen Sheriff Carlos G. Bolanos, or Captain Christina Corpus make any similar effort on behalf of the Residents of San Mateo County.

Alex Tourk “I would give Don a heads up just in case they get out of line and he can keep order.”

By Michael G, Stogner

This e-mail was sent 14 minutes before the Board of Supervisors Meeting on January 25, 2022. Alex Tourk is the Owner of a Public Relations Firm and his monthly fee has been reported to be $15,000 per month. SMC County Manager Mike Callagy hired him, Did he need the Supervisors permission for that hire, or is he paying for Mr. Tourk’s services out of his own pocket.

I would give Don a heads up just in case they get out of line and he can keep order.

The above e-mail is in response to the below e-mail sent 2 minutes earlier by Michelle Durand. WCM stands for a 501C called the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma, California. The President of WCM is James Brown who is also the CEO of West Coast Security, San Carlos, California.


On Tue, Jan 25, 2022 at 8:44 AM Michelle Durand <mdurand@smcgov.org> wrote:

Good morning all

Just spoke with the WCM president who said ABC7 plans to join the meeting via Zoom bc they received a call from Brent Turner who said he plans to attend and question the decision to work with his organization. In James words, Brent said he wanted to “cause a ruckus.” I told him Brent is not unfamiliar to the Board and staff.

Let me know if I should also alert Don or others.

So based on these two e-mails 2 minutes apart we can see the Michelle Durand had a conversation with James Brown the President of Wine Country Marines about ABC7 attending by ZOOM the BOS meeting that starts in 16 minutes. Wouldn’t all Governments want the Public’s Business to be viewed by the Public and wouldn’t they welcome the News Industry and Reporters to attend.

Think about that for a moment, it’s a San Mateo County Government Public Meeting on Zoom.

Who was Alex Tourk concerned about getting out of line?

There was only one Supervisor that even bothered to ask any questions and that was David Canepa. Don Horsley quickly jumped all over him.

BOS Meeting of January 25, 2022 Video

At the 330:35 mark Supervisor/Candidate for Congress David Canepa asks this question, “There is some PPE that has gone unaccounted for right? That was a great great question, it’s too bad he didn’t wait for Mike Callagy to answer it. ABC7 Investigative reporter Dans Noyes who broke this story on January 13, 2022 reported a “CONVOY of garbage trucks filled up with brand new PPE” in the previous 2 months that would have been November-December of 2021.

At the 3:33:00 you can hear Don Horsley the President of the Board of Supervisors interrupting Supervisor David Canepa’s question. Did Don think David was getting out of line?

The San Mateo County PPE Scandal continues to grow as is always the case when the simple facts are lied about. It’s always the Coverup that becomes the story.

San Mateo County Government doesn’t want a citizen/resident, or employee asking any pesky questions like, How did you choose the Wine Country Marines of Sonoma California to distribute the more than $10M of PPE on January 25, 2022? How many other 501C’s from San Mateo County did you consider?

A 2015 investigation into Chancellor Ron Galatolo why did it take so long for criminal charges?

Good News Some people do get Charged with Perjury by Declaration in San Mateo County, others like Hon. Judge Joseph Scott and his Court Clerk don’t even get Investigated. You can see one of Mr. Galatolo’s charges dates back to March 1, 2011, that’s 11 years ago, how was he not charged back then?

This is another great case to watch to see what actually happens in San Mateo County with these charges finally brought by District Attorney Steve Wagstaffe.
