Over the next few weeks four psychics will be investigating the cold case homicide of La Cañada residents Harold "Skip" Tillman and his wife, Joni. On Feb. 6, 2000, the Tillmans went out dining with friends at J.J. Steakhouse in Pasadena. They dropped their dinner companions off at about 9 p.m. and that was the last anyone heard from them. Their bodies were found in two isolated desert graves in Yucaipa three days later. San Bernardino County Sheriff’s detectives had investigated the case but there was little evidence and the case was put on the shelf.

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.

Steakhouse in Pasadena on Feb. 6, 2000.

Many will shake their heads today and say, ?Where did the year go?? It was a speedy one, from my point of view too, but have also you considered how quickly the first decade of this century swept past as well? Take a look over my shoulder and see just some of the events the Valley Sun covered between 2000 and 2008 (you can find the 2009 review beginning on Page 1). In 2000, JPL announced it had given up all hope of finding the Mars Polar Lander, lost the previous December.

Could lightning strike twice in the CIF Playoffs? For the St. Francis Golden Knights' faithful in hot, steamy Anaheim Stadium last Saturday afternoon, the CIF Southern Section Division II championship game against the Santa Ana Foothill Knights was shaping up as a repeat of their heart-stopping semifinal win over West Torrance that was won in extra innings by Taylor Smale's walk-off home run. Just as in that semifinal game, St. Francis took...
