On the afternoon of January 13, 2009, law enforcement officers responded to the Candlestick Apartments in Midvale City, Utah. The maintenance workers had observed newspapers piling up outside of Apartment 208. Officers entered and found Lester Janise, a 62-year-old Native American male, decesaed inside of his apartment. And valuable items were missing. An autopsy determined the cause of death as ligature strangulation. The time of death was estimated to be somewhere around the end of December 2008. Lester had visited friends in South Dakota earlier that December prior to returning to Midvale. His 2002 white Ford Windstar was missing from his residence at the time Lester was located. The vehicle was later recovered in another state. Lester was not only a spiritual leader among the Native Americans, but also a Vietnam Vet who was awarded a Purple Heart. He lived alone, but had had company from out-of-state staying with him shortly before his death. A Unified Police cold case detective recently received a reliable break in this case and is actively investigating new leads. We encourage anyone with ANY information to call 385-468-9816. We believe someone out there has additional information regarding this case and knows what happened to Lester Janise.

During the holidays, many crimes happen AWAY from potential victims--in the parking lot where they left their car. Former SLC police chief Chris Burbank shares a few holiday tips on what to do to minimize risk as you do your shopping. *** When you go out holiday shopping, you need to realize that more criminals—more people intent on taking things from your car—are out watching. Do not leave your purse and valuables in the car, if at all possible. If you are going to leave something in the car, make sure it’s not visible—that it’s out of sight. If you’re going to put something in the trunk in order to keep it safe, plan ahead. Don’t wait until you get to the shopping mall to get out and noticeably put your purse in the trunk and close the door. Other people, unfortunately, might be paying attention. Put it in there before you get to the shopping mall, then as you get out of your car, if somebody were to be watching this, they would have no idea that you have anything of value—nor is that attractive to them as a thief. As you shop and get packages, be organized in that. Most stores will hold purchases for you until the end of the day. So that you can go to multiple stores and then just do a pick up run, as opposed to taking something back to the car and putting it right in the back seat—where somebody, one, watches you come, and two, as they walk by the car they say, “That might be something of interest.” We’re not being paranoid, we’re just reducing the chances those packages get stolen.
