“Him and his buddy, his brother in arms at heart, just decided to joyride, take a spin,” Antonio Holmes, an onlooker at the event who identified himself as a friend of Walker’s, told the local Santa Clarita Valley Signal newspaper. “Something we all do. We’re all car enthusiasts. … We’re all here driving, enjoying each other, and God must’ve needed help.” YN

“He was a passenger in a friend’s car, in which both lost their lives.” Witnesses on the scene said the car was Paul’s … but also said he was in the passenger seat.
