Matt Sanchez Dies
Wednesday, August 8, 2012
What made young gang members listen was Sanchez's own personal history. As a teen in the 1970s, Sanchez, a bear of a man with slicked-back black hair, was a shot-caller with an Eastside gang and his role in that regard has since become the stuff of urban legend. Many a retired cop has war stories of chasing Sanchez and his brother all over town. While his brother accidentally shot himself playing Russian Roulette, Sanchez wound up addicted to heroin and spending nearly four years behind bars in various lock-ups. He would also join the Marines and kick his addiction.
In recent years, Sanchez and his family have been beset by a host of problems. He himself weathered a bout with cancer and his barber shop burned down. And his parents were victimized by notorious scam artist Denise D'Sant Angelo, who persuaded them she could help prevent them from losing their home to foreclosure. Not only did the Sanchez's loose their home, but they lost thousands of dollars to D'Sant Angelo as well.
S.B.C.C.C. The place where COMMON SENSE never goes out of style!
