Throughout the week, authorities released surveillance video of a person of interest seen in the area of the park around the time of the homicide. A surveillance video of Mr. Singh walking in the neighborhood was also released to the public in the hopes of generating tips to help progress the case.

A vigil for Mr. Singh was held drawing many members and support from the community. A reward was announced after family and members of the community raised $20,000 for information leading to the suspect’s arrest. On Thursday police announced they were being assisted by the FBI in the case, as the public urged officials to investigate it as a hate crime.

STOCKTON - Residents in the Brookside community of Stockton are being warned after the discovery of a very aggressive mosquito species.

Officials say the mosquitos are very aggressive, difficult to control and can potentially carry diseases like Zika and Dengue. San Joaquin Mosquito & Vector personnel are going door to door asking to inspect every yard to eliminate breeding sources.

District officials are also asking for homeowners to help them in allowing inspections to take place, adding that several generations of mosquitos can spawn from one female. The insect lays the eggs individually at various levels, so when water reaches each egg, they hatch.

These eggs are placed on items such as flowerpots, tires, saucers, yard drains and even bottle caps.

It is always a good idea to eliminate any sources of standing water, avoid being outdoors at dawn and sunset, and wear insect repellent containing deet.
