Every day crime mysteries are uncovered in the Orange County District Attorney's office. And every day some of those mysteries are officially solved by prosecutors in courtrooms. But there's one mystery that has stumped DA Tony Rackauckas.
“He doesn't know what happened,” DA chief of staff Susan Kang Schroeder told me. “He doesn't know if it was stolen or lost. I know it's embarrassing, but that's the truth.”
Rackauckas is the occasional recipient of death threats from the likes of criminal street gang bosses or the mentally deranged, says Schroeder, who declined to elaborate on what security precautions the DA takes nowadays.
