The newest member of the Cypress Police Department, who disappeared before he even started work, was found hanging around a supermarket warehouse in Buena Park on Thursday.

A Westminster man was arrested Wednesday and later charged after DNA evidence linked him to the 1994 slaying of an 18-year-old man, the Cypress Police Department said Thursday. Brian Zumbado, a 26-year-old construction worker, is suspected of fatally stabbing Eddie Alexander Young of Anaheim during a fight in a Cypress parking lot. Law enforcement officials say DNA samples taken from Zumbado after a 2004 conviction for spousal battery link him to the stabbing.

The Cypress Police Department is poised to become the first municipal law enforcement agency in Orange County to study whether its officers take part in racial profiling of motorists pulled over in traffic stops. Dozens of police departments across the state--including the California Highway Patrol--track the race and ethnicity of motorists stopped for traffic violations. The idea is to see if police are more likely to pull over black and Latino motorists.

It was an unfortunate misunderstanding, according to Cypress police. But to a New Mexico family, it was an abusive traffic stop that shattered a peaceful day at an Orange County mall. Police and the Quitmeyer family agree on little surrounding the events of June 7, which last week triggered a $3-million claim against the city alleging excessive force by one of its plain-clothes detectives.

Police investigators, stymied in their efforts to identify a baby found dead in a garbage can last week, are turning to the public for help. Police need information from anyone who may have known or noticed a pregnant woman who was recently nearing delivery but is now without a newborn. Investigators have already checked one such tip but it proved false, said Lt. Phillip Satterfield, who is heading the investigation. "A child is dead, and we don't have clue one right now," he said.
