The close of a shocking chapter

Peter Chi’s sentencing today draws an end to an ugly trio of crimes for Tracy that each broke within a four-month period of time.

Dec. 1, 2008: Kyle, 16, bolted over a wall with a shackle after captivity and torture.

Feb. 5, 2009: Dr. Peter Chi makes his first court appearance on sexually battery charges.

March 27, 2009: Melissa Huckaby murdered 8-year-old Sandra Cantu.

Certainly, there were other crimes around this time in Tracy that left deeply scared lives. And there will no doubt be more stories to come on these cases here and there. But these three crimes, which rose to such prominence because they were so shocking in their own unique ways, by today will be, for the most part, closed.

I doubt anybody will be upset to put each of these behind us.
