What happened to the case of the high school kid who was attacked and killed walking on Franklin and Laguna to pick up his sister a few years back?
– Tom, Elk Grove
No arrests have been reported in the Jan. 7, 2006, beating death of 15-year-old Robert Francisco Maisonet as he was walking on Franklin Boulevard in Elk Grove.
According to stories in The Sacramento Bee, three teenage boys pummeled Maisonet, a Franklin High School freshman, until he collapsed. The boys then jumped into a sport-utility vehicle driven by a fourth person. A passerby called 911 and Maisonet, who was found unconscious, was taken to UC Davis Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
Sheriff’s deputies detained a group of teenagers the day of the beating but determined that they were not involved.
In September 2008, the recently formed Elk Grove Police Department took over the investigation from the Sheriff’s Department and announced that the Carole Sund/Carrington Foundation was offering a $5,000 reward to anyone who could help solve the murder. Police said the motive for the attack was still unknown.
The website for the organization Citizens Against Homicide currently lists a $50,000 reward in the case.
