Man Dragged From Business And Killed: Topo Padilla Talks to A&G

"My family has been in this business for over 50 (years)--this has never happened."

56-year old Kevin Brace, a longtime Sacramento bail bondsman, died after an assault outside of Greg Padilla Bail Bonds on Monday June 3.

Arrested at the scene, 39-year old Jacob Levi Mandell, who pleaded not guilty to murder during his arraignment.

During an appearance on The Armstrong & Getty Show, the owner of the business, Topo Padilla, stated that Brace was dragged out of bail bonds office and beaten to death by a man who asked to use the phone.

"Kevin was minding his own business and was dragged from the business and beat to death. There are monsters wandering our streets of this city and cities throughout this country."

Padilla says, the suspect fought with police while one officer was administering first aid.

"The officer had to stop giving Kevin CPR so he could help his fellow officer arrest the murderer. I hope that resonates with Darryl Steinberg" (Sacramento's outging mayor).
