The U.S. Postal Service honored Los Angeles Times journalist Ruben Salazar slain during the East L.A. riots.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff's office reported Thursday night they will release on Tuesday their "Office of Independent Review" (OIR) report investigating the death of Los Angeles Times journalist Ruben Salazar.
A tear gas canister fired by a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy during a march against the Vietnam War in East Los Angeles in 1970 killed Salazar.
The deputy who fired the tear gas round was never prosecuted. Nevertheless many people felt the case was never properly investigated.
In August of 2010 Los Angeles Supervisor Gloria Molina pressed for disclosure of department Salazar documents.
While it appears the documents will not be released Tuesday the department said in an e-mail news release the "report provides a summary narrative of eight boxes of materials that comprised the LASD’s Homicide Investigation into the August 29, 1970 death of Ruben Salazar.
"The report further contrasts differences in the way that these types of incidents were investigated by LASD in 1970 to the attention that a like incident would receive today," the department said.
