It was 10 years ago this month that a man in Yucaipa walking his dog early one evening discovered the bodies of two La Cañadans, in an infamous case that remains unsolved. Harold and Joni Tillman were abducted from their home on Bramblewood Road on Feb. 6, 2000, and murdered. Their bodies were found near Oak Glen Drive and 5th street in Yucaipa the next evening. “It was a frustrating case,” said Assistant Police Chief Rick Ells of the Highland Police Dept.; Ells was one of the four detectives with the San Bernardino Sheriff’s Department who worked the case when it was reopened in 2008.

After an eight-year lull, San Bernardino County sheriff’s detectives are once again actively investigating the murder of a La Cañada Flintridge couple. It was on Feb. 9, 2000, that the bodies of La Cañada residents Harold “Skip” Tillman, 55, and his wife Joni, 51, were found in two isolated desert graves in Yucaipa, about 75 miles east of La Cañada. The couple had last been seen on Feb. 6, 2000, after having dinner at J.J.’s Steakhouse in Pasadena. The investigation into their deaths had yielded little to no information and had stalled.

Almost two years to the day after an unknown arsonist started what would become the 10th largest wildfire in modern California history, life has returned to normal in La Cañada Flintridge, but scars of the disaster remain. While the Station fire's perpetrator remains at large, the community has moved from rebuilding homes to rebuilding real estate values. As anxious hikers wait for beloved trails to reopen, the Los Angeles County Fire Department and U.S. Forest Service have come together with a new plan for coordination between the two agencies so that when the next wildfire breaks out, they'll be prepared to prevent it from turning into another full-fledged disaster.

A dozen years after La Cañada residents Harold “Skip” Tillman and his wife, Joni, were found buried in remote graves, investigators say they have new developments regarding the murders, but are staying tight-lipped about any details. “There are some things that we're working on, but it's not anything I can divulge right now,” said Det. Ryan Ford of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department Cold Case Homicide Division. “It's definitely a case that we have open and we're actively seeking out additional leads and information.” Skip Tillman, an accountant, and Joni, a homemaker, were last seen dining at J.J. Steakhouse in Pasadena on Feb. 6, 2000.

Since the first week of March, a film crew and psychics have been investigating the long- unsolved murder of La Cañada residents Harold ?Skip? and Joni Tillman. Using traditional and psychic medium methods, the team traveled from the couple?s home in La Cañada to where their bodies were found in shallow graves in Yucaipa on Feb. 9, 2000. The team poured over records, interviewed friends and family, and used the psychics? skills to navigate through the spirit world. And, in the end, they think they just might have solved the case that has been cold for more than nine years.

Law enforcement officials announced yesterday they are seeking a “person of interest” in an eight-year double murder case involving a La Cañada couple. In August, the San Bernandino County Sheriff Department’s cold case division re-opened the investigation into the murder of Harold “Skip” and Joni Tillman. A witness has since come forward with information that may help investigators find the party responsible for murders. On Feb. 9, 2000, the Tillmans’ bodies were found in two isolated desert graves in Yucaipa, about 75 miles east of La Cañada.

Beer connoisseurs Peter Duncan, who resides in La Cañada, and Roy Leisure, who works in town, searched for the best local beer hole. Here’s what they found. At La Cañada’s Le Petit Vendome, Peter Duncan and I were eyeballing the latest bottled ales, lagers and stouts in the cold case and actually started a thought. And as this thought fermented within us we reached beyond the id and existentialism to formulate this chilling question: Where can you get a high-quality beer on tap in this town?
