I spoke with Willene at the Sheriff's office. She wants confirmation from DA
Rushton before she will release the police report info. I have emailed that
information to him. The report will probably have information redacted per
their policy. I believe it is usually suspects info that is redacted, I'm not
sure. I printed the letters you attached to your email and put them in DA

Subject: Authorization for Dawana from Lee Frank to get records regarding Nye
Frank Fwd: eFax from 7148491311 - 2 page(s), Caller-ID: 951-849-1311
Attached is a request notarized to have me be able to get the police
report and statements regarding Nye Frank and Ty Reddish. My mother is
72 years old and not in good health and the stress of this situation
compounds her health issues. I am the stepdaughter of Nye Frank and
was raised by him and have been a member of his family over 30 years.
Reading the Victim's Rights manual and websites states that my mother
is also entitled to extra help due to her age. Please update the
police, Sheriff, DA office that I am the next of kin and have the
right to help my mother. My contact information is below (they can
also contact me at my mom's house 951-849-1311).
Yesterday, I went to the Banning Police Department and they did not
have the police report. They referred me to the Cabazon Sheriff
department. When I went there, I spoke to Willene Garcia who is a
supervisor there. She told me I could not get a copy of the police
report or any statements. Also she questioned my being considered next
of kin of Nye's as she said I am a stepdaughter not a blood family
member. Then she said if she gave us anything it would have all the
information blacked out. I asked her if she had a victims rights
manual on site and she stated she did not and has not read one. I
called 760 836-1632 Central Homicide and have left several messages
but no one answers. In the past I have requested the police report,
statements in the file via phone, fax and letter. All requests have
been ignored, or we have been told we cannot have them.
I would like a way to go to court to have a judge court order our
ability to get the police report and statements. Can you please tell
us how or who can help us. We do not have money for an attorney. My
mother has been left without any income with my dad passing away. I am
willing to go where and see who we need to. Please help us with this.
Today would be great, sooner the better.
I am also attaching the letter from Larry McRae, also the documents
that came with the recording of their call to the police. I have the
recording now, and will bring it another time.
I hope the DA takes the time to read the letter from Larry McRae 951
845-7378, and Steven de Sante 714 969-8277 and interview them. Also
due to fear of being harmed and harassed, a family here that have
witnessed two incidents involving Ty Reddish have not come forward to
the police. But they did tell me about the three incidents, and told
me they are afraid to report them. They are my mom's neighbors,
Luciene and Connie Turlea and their daughters. They are the ones who
told me about Steven and helped me find him. They said there was also
a runner that they saw Ty roughing up physically and verbally yelling
at for making dust. But when Ty saw the girls walking he backed off.
They also were witnesses to the accident at Larry McRae's home. Their
home phone number is 951 849-6556. These are good people, immigrants
to this country and have had the Reddish family actively warn them
after Nye's death.
