Will try to make memorial.

The security guard at the Trader Joe's, only one block away, told me
that the 
following story, which he compiled from other people working on the
block and 
from homeless people who knew Margaret Mitchell.

The car dealer adjacent to the bench where Margaret Mitchell used to
sleep 
complained to the LAPD.  As a result, that morning the police were
looking 
for her.  When they found her, they hassled her about the cart, and when
she 
tried to get away from them, they shot her in the back.

I am not sure how much of this story has gotten to her family's lawyers,
but 
all of these facts and allegations are worth investigating in great
deal.
