Daniel Alexander’s parents Debbie and Bruce, who didn’t want their last names used for fear of retaliation, want the public’s help in making an arrest of the man accused of killing their son.
Alexander was walking on South Vine Street on July 4, 2009, when a group of guys confronted him, Escondido police said. The 26-year-old was killed when Fernando Ramos, 33, allegedly pulled out a gun and shot him, according to police.
Investigators believe Ramos could be anywhere, but Mexico is a likely place.
“[Alexander] was just an innocent bystander,” said Lt. Neal Griffin, Escondido Police Department.
A $10,000 reward is being offered for the arrest and conviction of the murderer.
“When the fireworks go off, we look at each spark as a moment of Dan’s life,” said Debbie.
