    That’s so sad. I just saw this old man Sunday and waved to him as we passed by.

    Everyone needs to see that 2 lives were lost. I don’t agree at all on what James did, but he made a decision during hard times in his life, and it affected 2 people. Both lost their lives that day.Some people are stronger than others and could possibly make it during the hardest times of their lives, and as we can see, some cant.R.I.P to the man that was killed. I’ll pray for you both

    The report that this was at Home Depot was false it was in the Wal-Mart parking lot I know because it was near my car.

      Kaekae,
      This information is NOT false. The murder was indeed committed in the Home Depot Parking lot. Another Motor home in the Walmart lot was investigated but not part of the crime scene.

    2 lives were not lost, stop using the criminals first name as if he is somebody that rates a name. First of all the criminal could of taken the old man out without killing the poor guy..77 years old and you have to stab him to death? Stop making excuses for the vermin of this area and start setting higher standards for mankind and we can all live a better live. RIP old man your in a better RV park now where you don’t have to watch your back for lowlife criminals.

    Two lives were lost? No, just one. And the loser that killed that innocent elderly man needs to fry along with Christopher Lee.

    I knew this James Adam Webb and if he had set foot back on my place that man would be alive, cause I would had killed him myself.. the most cold hearted, no soul sob I have ever known in my life, and I am sure he will not make it out of jail alive either with the way he is, the Devil can have his son back and will get him soon. I feel so sorry for the man who had to die because of this pos..

    I am thankful for the comments that have been made in this forum. I am an old man approaching 70 and have known the deceased for ten years. I visited him with my wife in June in Yucca Valley. He told me his plans were to work on his RV and that he needed things from Wal Mart and Home Depot for his electronic and air-conditioning inventions and was very excited that we would be back to visit with him in the Palm Springs area this winter. (The deceased and myself are considered Snowbirds/Rainbirds)
    This 77 year old man was one of the kindest most considerate people I have ever met. He was very quiet – yet very enthusiastic about life. He was a good-hearted man and very honest and trusting. He will be more than missed. He has many friends throughout the country in the RV industry, as well as RVer’s. I hope that the good people of Yucca Valley, who have shown an interest in this disasterous abomination, will continue to see proper justice is done and that Yucca Valley will grow and be restored from any infectious comments that could be made about the area. My hat is off to the law enforcement people for doing such a superb and fast job which shows the protection that the residents in Yucca Valley have.
