In March 2014, Long Beach kitchen designer Dana Kathleen Jones died of massive head injuries that her husband claimed were caused by yoga. Her family believes she was murdered by her husband, variously named Carl Lynn Jenkins/Cain Finn Jones/Kane Finn Kealoha/Hucky or Huck. Long Beach Police homicide detectives Todd Johnson and Roger Zottneck botched the investigation due to blunders and intentional omissions, and made false statements about the evidence. Further, these detectives were protected and defended by Jim McDonnell and Erik Herzog.
