The stepson of La Habra Heights City Councilman Howard Vipperman was found hanging at the public official's home last night. Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter said the man, identified as 34-year-old Jeremy Schiro is believed to have committed suicide at the sprawling complex located in La Habra Heights. An autopsy is planned.
According to Detective Edwards, who interviewed the girls, Schiro and his wife Ashley were in the habit of punishing their daughters by covering the youth's mouths and noses with their hands. The couple pled guilty to the offenses.
