Travis Dairy killer misses arraignment; now a fugitive

FAIRFIELD — One of the teens who killed the owner of Travis Dairy in Fairfield during a 2011 heist is now a fugitive after skipping out on his arraignment Tuesday for a felony gun possession charge.

Dezmon “Young D” Frazier, 20, was stopped by Vacaville police outside an Alamo Drive apartment on the night of July 1. Frazier, who is awaiting sentencing for involuntary manslaughter for the 2011 killing at Travis Dairy, was searched and police said they found a concealed and loaded semiautomatic handgun with a high-capacity magazine.

In spite of the pending sentencing and the new arrest of the self-admitted felon, Frazier was able to post $50,000 bail after being in jail for a few hours.

Judge Donna Stashyn issued a $100,000 arrest warrant for Frazier.

The new arrest could void the plea deal Frazier was given by prosecutors whose theory of murder for the Travis Dairy crime was damaged by the testimony of forensic pathologist Dr. Susan Hogan and the subsequent controversy involving the District Attorney’s Office and a secret Sheriff’s Office investigation into Hogan that led to her firing.

Frazier previously pleaded no contest to involuntary manslaughter and burglary charges for his role actions in the Travis Dairy heist that netted several packs of cigarettes and $60.

The market’s 70-year-old owner, Ho Kim, was assaulted during the incident and had a fatal heart attack. Frazier faced a maximum punishment of four years and eight months behind bars. That punishment could be changed if he is convicted of the new charges.

    Wow. Any damage this kid does between when he bailed and the time he gets caught are on the court system. This is just a terrible predicament.

    What does this have to do with Fairfield PD? They have nothing to do with the second case in Vacaville or his release from jail on either case.

    Who was the one in the court system, the Judge, or DA's office that let him post bail in the first place???? That person needs to hear, "YOU'RE FIRED," when they come up for election. We ALL need to keep track of that and get THAT person canned!!!!!!. Also think about whomever put up that PUNKS bail. They just forfeited their money, on the hook for $50,000. Too bad they still don't post wanted posters for, "WANTED DEAD or ALIVE." That would definitely help FIX this MESS. Must be THE WORST county court system in the entire state!!!

    It does seem that you do not get out much, It happens to be year 2014, not 1886. The county court systems are all the same, a business. Boy scout notions about, "justice", are quite provincial.

    It's odd that this story did include what happened in connection with the burglary/involuntary manslaughter case. I heard bail was revoked and a no-bail warrant was issued, a power the court has pending sentencing but not in the new case. I guess it doesn't stir up the ignorant commentators that follow this reporter if all the relevant information is given.

    I think the questions raised by contributors to this forum deserve an official answer. Could someone from the DR interview the judge or judges and/or other officials involved in the case and publish their response? Jess? Glen?

    @Truth'n-The judge in this case is Donna Stashyn.This is par for the course with her. People violate their probation, they see her, and she sets them free to violate again, all the time. I don't know who the DA on the case is. The loser is due back in court 07-28-2014 IN D18 AT 9:00, AT THE REQUEST OF THE ATTY. He killed Mr Kim in 2011, and he still hasn't been convicted of that. This is just disgusting. I don't think we should ask ourselves why these criminals continue to do what they do. Instead we should ask "Why not?" It's not like they ever get in trouble or pay a price for their crimes.

  • You all missed the ironyJuly 23, 2014 - 11:37 pm

    None of the comments focused on the real irony of the story, the judge issues $100k warrant which means another chance to get out. The system is broken and keeps getting worse. If this clown can convince showtime else to post, he is out again.

    Reading about the courts budget issues in this morning's paper, the protests over there, due to more furloughs, etc. While all the upper level people keep wasting so much money with their unnecessary perks, maybe they should just consider closing the courthouse altogether, installing a revolving door for the front door, where a Police Officer (Not their fault) can direct the perps in and around and back out; for all the good the courts are doing. We need to all keep one another informed, ESPECIALLY come election time, whenever any of those responsible for the mess runs for re-election!!!!!
