Anna Del Rio has lost a daughter to crime and is now being harassed by a street gang because of her job as a dispatcher for Crime Stoppers. Think the L.A. resident is intimidated? Not Hardly. Del Rio, whose 20-year-old daughter was murdered a decade ago, awoke to find her garage door spray-painted with profanity and the numbers “187.” “187” is the police code for homicide. The gang has apparently confused working for Crime Stoppers as being the same as being a police informant. Del Rio took the job as a way to channel her grief about the loss of her daughter into something productive. In response to the vandalism, she has placed a picture of her daughter by her garage door as a makeshift memorial. Del Rio says she refuses to be intimidated by the people who vandalized her property. Police are investigating the incident.
