On Sunday, November 2, the Pico Youth and Family Center held a special Dia de los Muertos event to acknowledge the 10-year anniversary of the worst wave of violence the Pico community has known. Lifelong resident and SMC professor Jaime Cruz (photo) spoke. He was a gunshot victim in 1998, suffering multiple injuries. Two years later, his sixteen-year-old sister Cindy was killed. A Dia de los Muertos shrine at PYFC remembers many of the victims of violence in the Pico neighborhood.
