But Lori Ward, Haynes' sister, wonders why the other victim left without either helping her brother or calling help for him. "I want to ask him why he left my brother there the way he did," Ward reportedly told KTLA News. "My brother didn't deserve that. I'm not sure if I'm angrier at him or the people who beat him up because his so-called friend left him behind."
According to Orange Police Sgt. Dan Adams, 41-year-old Sandra Higareda was a former Haynes friend. She was arrested along with Steve Fry, 40.

A man who was scheduled to meet Haynes Sunday morning found him unconscious in the storage unit and called Orange Police. Haynes was taken to UCI Medical Center in Orange, where he died four days later.
The Orange County Register, citing court records, reports that Fry pleaded guilty to more than a dozen felonies in 1996, including multiple burglary, grand theft and forgery charges, while Higareda pleaded guilty to felony burglary charges in 1997, 2002 and 2003, auto theft charges in 1996 and 1997, and possession of a controlled substance charges in 2006.
Sounds like they were meant for each other.
