Pacific honors slain teen Walter Denesha
The City of Pacific officially proclaimed Dec. 11 as Do an Act of Kindness Day in honor of slain Pacific teen Walter Denesha.
Denesha, a 13-year-old Mt. Baker Middle School student, was killed by Brandon Suhr on June 1, 2012.
“All of us were truly affected by the events that took place on June 1 and are truly thankful for the efforts of our police department,” said Pacific Mayor Leanne Guier. “Our hearts go out, and it’s a great honor to declare Do an Act of Kindness Day in honor of Walter.”
Denesha’s parents, Kevin and Janine Denesha, were at the City Council’s regularly scheduled meeting Monday to accept the proclamation.
Guier, Pacific Police Det. Dave Newton and Major Crimes Task Force Commander and Tony Matthews, a Lake Forest Police detective who led the investigation into the crime, presented the proclamation.
Suhr is serving 30 years in prison for killing Denesha.
