Monday morning report, Oct. 26

Five things to know this Monday morning: 

1.) The 5 Freeway reopened this morning after a weekend-long shutdown for Caltrans work. 

Crews were replacing the bridge deck that spans the San Gabriel River, which was damaged by fire earlier this summer. 


2.) Authorities have identified the people killed in last week's suspected murder-suicide in Downey. 

The dead included 1-year-old Jude Quezada; 26-year-old Reyna Hernandez; and 29-year-old Nicholas Quezada. All three were found deceased last Wednesday night in an apartment unit on the 7300 block of Neo Street. 

Lt. Mark McDaniel of the Downey Police Department reportedly told Fox-11 that Nicholas Quezada had made threats against Reyna Hernandez in the past. 


3.) Warren High's varsity tennis team won its third straight league championship over the weekend, finishing with a perfect 12-0 league record. 

The 13-member squad now enters a league tournament and playoffs. 


4.) Downey Unified's TLC Family Resource Center has a part-time job opening. Must be bilingual in English and Spanish, and pay starts at $18.74 per hour.

5.) Warren High's football team beat Downey last Friday night, 23-6, snapping a 6-year losing streak to the Vikings. 

The win is a keystone moment for the Bears and its football program under head coach Raul Lara. 

“Last year after we lost to Downey, this team gave up on us coaches,” Lara told the Press-Telegram. “But we pushed them, changed the culture and got it back. That was the turning point (for this program).”
