Lovelle Mixon, the Oakland resident who died last Saturday after murdering four Oakland police officers, is being hailed as a hero by some. But certainly not by the woman he (allegedly) raped prior to his timely death. According to Associated Press, Mixon was tied to a February rape. "DNA found at the scene of the rape was a probable match to Lovelle Mixon, Oakland police spokesman Jeff Thomason said Monday night." (Cue conspiracy theories!) In related news, the fourth Oakland officer shot by Mixon, 41-year-old John Hege, was finally taken off of support. He had been brain dead since last Saturday's shooting spree.
