Sacramento)  – Assemblymember Jose Medina (D-Riverside) introduced American folk singer Joan Baez to his fellow lawmakers as the State Assembly commemorated the 70th anniversary of the 1948 Los Gatos Canyon plane crash that killed 32 people. The names of 28 of those victims, who were Mexican citizens, had gone unreported until research published last year by Tim Z. Hernández. “For many, many, many years, Tim here researched to try and find the people, to find their relatives, to give them their dignity and some kind of peace of mind, and he did find every one of them,” Baez said.
