Event Type Press Conference
Organizer/AuthorAnti-Police Terror Project
Please join Angel Rico Ramos' family and Anti Police-Terror Project at a press conference demanding justice for Angel and the release of his autopsy report.

Angel was murdered on January 23, 2017, by Vallejo police, and on June 3, 2017 he would be turning 22.

Solano county sheriff failed to release the autopsy report, which we believe constitutes negligence on their part. We feel the need to point out that Solano County has the largest number of murders by law enforcement in the Bay Area, and refusing to release Angel's autopsy report appears to be a tactic to prevent the community from knowing what happened to Angel.

All that Angel's family is asking for at this point is to be able to receive his autopsy report for his birthday.

Multiple requests by his family, community, and his family legal representatives to release the autopsy report have been denied. In order for Angel's family to begin a healing process they need to know what happened to their loved one. Not releasing the autopsy report is exacerbating and prolonging the family's pain.

At this press conference, we demand that the sheriff releases the report immediately, whether or not it is a part of a VPD investigation. We would also like to use this opportunity for the family, community members and organizations to voice their concerns regarding the high number of police murders in Solano County and the negligence of the sheriff's department. We are concerned that as gentrification spreads to Vallejo and surrounding areas, local communities are at risk of further increase of police violence and terror.

We hope that the community can turn up to support Angel's family.
