Heinz Puschendorf made this statement about the Suspicious Death of Munir Edais 28 Months ago in San Mateo County. Neither Carlos G. Bolanos or Captain Christina Corpus have.
Here is his statement: I would like to put out publicly, when I’m elected Sheriff, one of the first things I would do is open an inquiry, to investigate the Edais’ death case.
Heinz Puschendorf was the President of the Deputy Sheriff’s Association DSA on April 21, 2007.
Not one Elected Official or Newspaper in San Mateo County has ever asked Carlos G. Bolanos why he went inside 3474 Eldon Street, Las Vegas, Nevada that night on April 21, 2007. Captain Christina Corpus has never publicly asked Carlos G. Bolanos why he went inside that house. Carlos G. Bolanos has lied about that night for 15 years now.
Make sure you spell Heinz Puschendorf just right for your vote to count. He is a qualified Write-In Candidate.

Greg and Carlos
Just a quick word of support from me as you go through a difficult time.
To those who matter, your decades of outstanding work in law enforcement
are all that count and your integrity is not the slightest marked by the
modern media’s efforts to make a story out of a non-story. Hard as it is
to think it now, remember it will be yesterday’s news and irrelevant by
My positive thoughts are out there for both of you.
Sheriff detained in Las Vegas brothel raid.
Las Vegas Metro Police Spokesperson Bill Cassell said “officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences at the brothel.” That is pretty straight forward.

San Mateo County Sheriff Greg Munks Tuesday afternoon apologized for his “lack of judgment” following his and Undersheriff Carlos Bolanos’ brief detainment at a Las Vegas brothel Saturday night during a prostitution sting by local and federal authorities.
Munks, who was sworn in as sheriff of San Mateo County on Jan. 8, read a brief statement but declined to take questions.
“I believed I was going to a legitimate business,” Munks said. “It was not,” he said.
Munks said he and Bolanos had been in Las Vegas over the weekend to participate in a law enforcement run, the Baker to Vegas Relay. During a series of raids Saturday night and early Sunday dubbed “Operation Dollhouse,” Munks and Bolanos were detained but were not among the six people — five men and one woman — arrested by police at a brothel about two miles west of Las Vegas strip, Las Vegas police spokesman Bill Cassell said this afternoon.
The arrests at the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found took place at about 9:30 p.m. Saturday, Cassell said. Approximately 3,500 Ecstasy tabs and about $25,000 in cash was seized at the brothel, Cassell added.
Cassell said officers did come into contact with both Munks and Bolanos inside one of the residences at the brothel. “All of the customers were simply identified and released,” Cassell said.
“I want to apologize to my family, the sheriff’s office and its fine men and women, and to the people of San Mateo County for my lack of judgment and the undue attention and embarrassment this incident has caused,” Munks stated.
Munks said that he and Bolanos fully cooperated with the investigation, though he noted that Bolanos “was outside when the authorities arrived.”
“I would not, nor did I, break any laws,” Munks said. “Neither did the Undersheriff.”
Cassell stressed that Munks and Bolanos “received no special treatment because of their status in law enforcement.”
No charges have been filed against Munks or Bolanos.
Cassell declined to specify the exact location of the brothel where Munks and Bolanos were found, but said it is located two miles west of the strip in a mixed residential and light-industrial area in the south-central part of the city, according to Cassell.
The raid was part of a series of raids at nine Las Vegas brothels Saturday night and early Sunday morning, according to Cassell.
The operation capped a two-year investigation conducted by Las Vegas police, the FBI, the IRS criminal investigation division and the Immigration and Customs Enforcement Bureau, Cassell said.
Over the weekend, a total of seven people were arrested on prostitution and drug-related charges and 25 prostitutes were taken into custody, Cassell said. An ongoing investigation will attempt to determine whether any of those arrested were involved in illegal human trafficking, he added.
According to Cassell, additional suspects are still being sought by authorities on federal prostitution charges.

The San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office could have opened it’s own Investigation into the Suspicious Death of Munir Edais a 32 year old Father of two girls, a Police Officer, a Daly City Resident anytime it wanted too without anyone ever asking. That did NOT HAPPEN.
