San Bernardino, CA: Committee works on creating a permanent memorial for victims of the Terrorist Attack on San Bernardino, California.

San Bernardino, CA: Committee works on creating a permanent memorial for victims of the Terrorist Attack on San Bernardino, California.

A committee is working on creating a permanent memorial for victims of the Terrorist Attack at the Inland Regional Center in San Bernardino, California that occurred a year ago on Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015.

CVvYh-TXAAEe-pSCVVo0LEUEAAGElR

The terrorist attack killed 14 people and wounded 22 people before the 2 terrorists attackers were shot and killed by authorities in a shootout.

According to the County of San Bernardino, a committee charged with creating a permanent memorial to the victims of the terrorist attack continues to work toward its goal.

The December 2nd Memorial Committee recently completed a review of several memorials from across the country, noting how, in nearly every instance, the sponsoring agency used a structured process to allow artists, architects and designers to submit proposals.

The committee will discuss how to proceed when it reconvenes after the first of the year.

In February 2016, Board of Supervisors Chairman James Ramos appointed Fifth District Supervisor Josie Gonzales and Chief Executive Officer Greg Devereaux to assemble and lead a committee to conceive the memorial.

The committee consists of representatives from public safety, the departments of Behavioral Health, Public Health and Real Estate Services, the County Administrative Office and, most importantly, representatives from the Environmental Health Services division and family members of the county employees who were taken from us on that day.

The committee has held several meetings to identify key points of consideration and to establish an overall vision for the memorial based on shared values.

The committee has determined the memorial should recognize the broad diversity and lives of the victims as well as those who stepped up to preserve and protect life.

The memorial will also provide enduring recognition of the county employees who witnessed the attack, many of whom were physically injured and all of whom were emotionally impacted.

The committee believes the memorial should be a place for quiet reflection.

The committee is making it a point to put careful consideration into each aspect of the memorial process, understanding that memorials can take up to a decade to develop.

As the year anniversary of this tragic event approaches, the committee members want the public to know that work is progressing in a thoughtful and inclusive manner.

The process will take time, but the result will appropriately and eternally reflect the many important and unique people, stories, and lessons of Wednesday, December 2nd, 2015.

The December 2nd Memorial Committee will enter into talks at the beginning of 2017 on how to proceed with the December 2nd Memorial.

News Update!!: San Bernardino, CA: Former Marine sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of Erin Corwin.

ZachNews -- News Update!!

News Update!!: San Bernardino, CA: Former Marine sentenced to life in prison without parole for the murder of Erin Corwin.

According to the San Bernardino County District Attorney’s Office, former United States Marine, 27 year old Christopher Brandon Lee, was sentenced to life in prison without parole on Tuesday, November 29th, 2016 in San Bernardino, California for the murder of 19 year old Erin Corwin in August 2014.

wp-1478212814884.jpg

Earlier this month, Christopher Brandon Lee, was found guilty of first-degree murder of Erin Corwin on Thursday, November 3rd, 2016 in San Bernardino, California.

The Christopher Brandon Lee had initially pleaded not guilty to killing Erin Corwin, but during that trial, Christopher Brandon Lee shocked a San Bernardino County Courtroom when he admitted to strangling Erin Corwin and pushing her head-first down an abandoned mine shaft in the Mojave Desert near Joshua Tree National Park.

Friends told investigators that Erin Corwin believed she was pregnant and that Christopher Brandon Lee might be the father.

Christopher Brandon Lee testified in court that he didn’t kill Erin Corwin because of the pregnancy situation, but because Erin Corwin confessed near the mine shaft to molesting his daughter.

“I made the decision to kill her,” Christopher Brandon Lee testified adding,”I was controlled by the anger. The hate I felt that day. It was something I never want to experience again.”

Christopher Brandon Lee said he approached Erin Corwin from behind and strangled her for at least 5 minutes with a garrote made up of 2 pieces of rebar and a cord, and later dragged her body to the mine shaft and pushing her.

When prosecutor Sean Daugherty asked Christopher Brandon Lee if he’s the person who strangled Erin Corwin, he replied, “Yes, I am.”

For nearly 2 months, people searched for Erin Corwin and prosecutors said Christopher Brandon Lee told detectives he had no idea where Erin Corwin was.

“I was afraid to tell the truth and thinking I could get away with it. I was still really angry at the time, I didn’t want anyone to find her then. I’m not angry anymore and I’m no longer scared to tell the truth. This is something that I have to do. I have to let everyone know what I did and accept the punishment that they give me for it,” said Christopher Brandon Lee.

Erin Corwin was last seen Saturday, June 28th, 2014, and her husband, a Marine corporal, reported her missing the next day when she did not return home from a day trip to Joshua Tree National Park.

Erin Corwin was reportedly 3 months pregnant when she disappeared.

The search for Erin Corwin spanned 300 square miles of the Mojave Desert in San Bernardino County, California with hundreds of rescue workers and volunteers searched in helicopters and on the ground, as well as dive teams searched bodies of water in the area.

Forensic exams of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices led detectives to a mine shaft outside Joshua Tree National Park on Saturday, August 16th, 2014.
