Cerritos Car Salesman Stabbed to Death

Um, is a car really worth KILLING somebody for? How does someone think that they can not only get away with stealing a car but that they can also just stab the car salesman with a butcher knife that they just so happened to have? This is a scary world folks.

Frank D’Agostino, general manager of S&J Chevrolet in the 18600 block of Studebaker Road, said Macaso arrived about 7 p.m. Tuesday and asked to drive a demonstrator car.

“The policy is you can’t test-drive a car without a driver’s license, and he couldn’t produce one,” D’Agostino said.

The man became violent in the dealership office when the salesman, whose identity was being withheld until relatives could be notified, turned down the request, Evans said.

Investigators said the suspect withdrew a knife from his clothing and immediately stabbed the salesman several times in the chest before attempting to flee.

  1. Not good to be in this industry. You never know what might happen. Then again, nobody does. Think about this, just earlier that morning, him and his wife were playing around, having a good time with each other, knowing that they were going to give birth to a baby girl, now going to be named Alexis Michael, only to find out that he will never come home. It is a cliche for me to say that he was a “great man” but he was that. Probably one of the best men I have ever met. He was a loving man, friendly to everyone, and would never be able to earn an enemy. I am proud to say that this is my brother-in-law. He will be missed..

  2. I knew this man. He was a GREAT man who everyone loved. I was a student of his at a local golf class. This was the first class that he taught for the local community college. This a true loss for anyone that ever had contact with him. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.
