Crime Victims Get a Life Sentence

Forty years ago this past July 12th, a deranged janitor at California State University at Fullerton (CSUF), used a rifle to shoot and kill seven of his co-workers and acquaintances, and wounded two others. The murderer shot 23 rounds at close range. Those murdered were Debbie Paulson, Frank Teplansky, Steven L. Becker, Seth Fessenden, Paul F. Herzberg, Bruce A. Jacobson and Donald E. Karges. Maynard Hoffman and Donald W. Keran were wounded and survived their injuries. The families of those shooting victims are still grieving without a hope of closure. Victim family members Paul Paulson and Pat Almazon have attended court proceedings and parole-type hearings for the past 40 years. They have vowed to be in the audience each time the killer’s sanity is reviewed.
