Defense and prosecution attorneys presented their opening arguments Monday in the trial of Harvey Rader, the one-time Reseda car dealer accused of murdering a Northridge family of four whose bodies have never been found. Deputy Dist. Atty.

Former Reseda auto dealer Harvey Rader, whom police have called the chief suspect in the 1982 disappearance of a San Fernando Valley family, was released Friday from federal prison in Phoenix after serving a sentence for attempting to obtain a U.S. passport in someone else's name. Rader, a British citizen, was immediately taken into custody by agents of the Immigration and Naturalization Service, who obtained a court order requiring him to show cause why he should not be deported.

Salomon was an only child who died in a lonely, courageous last stand on the island of Saipan in 1944, and his remains lie next to his parents' in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in Glendale. But as President Bush said during the award ceremony Wednesday, Capt. Salomon was represented by a "true friend, Dr. Robert West."
