Domestic violence: It also happens to mayors.
Daniel Crespo, 45, mayor of Bell Gardens, California, was shot and killed in his home on Tuesday. Police reportedly detained his wife Levette Crespo, 43, for the crime.
Levette and Daniel Crespo had a physical struggle before Levette got a gun and shot him several times in the torso, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Deputy Crystal Hernandez.
Bell Gardens is a small suburb of Los Angeles with a population of 43,000. The part-time city council members all take turns being mayor, which, despite tonight’s tragic events, I think we can all agree is remarkably sweet.
