     Two posts made by a friend of Tony Torrellas today on his Facebook page are below. There is a killer on the loose and his only possible defense is self-defense. What are the facts in this case, DA Stedman? His family and friends and the public have a right and a need to know.

*    Upon arrival, Officers made contact with an adult male that had laid down on the sidewalk and put his arms out to his sides. That male had placed a handgun on the ground in view of Officers but away from his person. The firearm was secured and the male was checked for any additional weapons. That male was later transported to the Police station to speak with investigators.
From the police press release on Monday’s shooting (click here).
      Apparently shooting someone and staying on the scene is becoming the way to avoid charges in Lancaster County. Could we have an update on Monday’s shooting?


     It has been almost three weeks since Tony Torrellas was shot multiple times and killed on April 27th in the city. The above quotes are from the last story LNP did on this homicide on April 29th, “Coroner makes ruling in Lancaster shooting death; DA’s office, police investigate,” (click here).
     Where is the follow-up? Does anyone hold the police and the District Attorney accountable in Lancaster County?
Please check back later today.

    Stop picking on our Craig Steadman! He’ll do his job and serve the citizenry of Lancaster County-once he determines it can benefit him and advance his career.

    Tony was set up by his baby mother name Natalie Montez his son was just only 5 years old Natalie had called Tony over and set him up they knew what they were doing Natalie’s other boyfriend Jesus and Tony were talking and it led to a argument then dispute just like the new said therefore you can tell he was invited over at that if you look at the news they have nothing except that they took the man in custody and let him walk they don’t say how he did not use proper procedures to even claim stand your ground or self-defense Natalie also was messing around with Tony head kept being too nice to him before that had happened they were talking on the phone calling each other back and forth that very same night so it’s that she had to tell him come over they knew what they were doing they had to have planned this out and being that Jesus shot 7 times no warning shot did not call the cops like I said this is very funny this s*** needs to get handled and Justice needs to be given

    Upon reading those posts again, are they saying that the shooter was the baby’s father? Are they saying that the shooters first name was jesus?

    • Becky says:

      To the best of my knowledge, the mother, Nataly Montes who lives in the house where the shooting took place, has two sons. Tony Torrellas was the father of one. I don’t know if the shooter is the father of the other. It certainly seems he is saying the shooter’s first name is Jesus.

    Answers? Steadman? LNP? It’s prom season and the moving piano’s are out n about!

  6. huh? says:

    What the LNP won’t report on, Facebook will.

    • Becky says:

      Do you know something, huh?

      • huh? says:

        Unfortunately I don’t. I do recall early on that someone familiar with what happened posted here. Perhaps the person will post again.

        The DA has in the past sheltered law enforcement officers and not revealed their names when a killing happens. Could this be the case now?
