A few years ago I was walking down Newark to Grove path and passed that recessed area next to Word. It was around 7am. I saw someone from the corner of my eye and it was him lying on his stomach eating a slice of pizza with his face. No hands involved.

I heard from a very reliable source that she indeed passed away.

I hope this is fake, though I did see her being lifted out of the shopping cart, placed on a stretcher, and loaded into an ambulance on Monday afternoon, I think it was. She was alert and I assumed it wasn't really all that serious.

That "memorial" has to be fake. While not much older, not 28.

What are your peoples' problems? Seriously! This came from a family/friend's Facebook memorial page for Karen. I'm sorry I didn't ask for the creator's permission to repost but I'm pretty sure they won't mind.

wow 28 so very sad, I just saw Taco Saturday night after the Cathedral Arts show. Look like he was in a wheelchair. He always calls me Jesus or Papi depending on how high he is. R.I.P.

She was only 28??? Although in 20/20 hindsight, her passing was inevitable; I am still really saddened by the news and kinda hope this is only a bad belated April Fools Day joke.

Why do you think something is wrong with me for asking details? I'm curious to know what happened. Those two are such a fixture downtown.

In all my years in JC (almost 9 already!) I never got to see this pair in action. Incredibly, I see Teddy often, as well as the always impeccable pimp. From everything that has been said in this thread, and others, I think of them as a sad, tragic pair. It's a shame that people who are in obvious need of help often go without it because of all the regulations and bureaucracy in place.

There is help. The problem is they need to seek it and want it.

Any local emergency room can assist them in finding a free program. Hogar Crea is long term, local, residential and free:

I don't know why they are in the situation they are in and maybe it's all their fault but I know for sure that no one wants to be homeless and looked down upon.

homeless shelters, soup kitchens, churches which shelter the homeless are all temporary solutions. There needs to be a program in place to give these people hope and support that they can and will change. A jobs program that not only trains the homeless but gives them hope.

Ok, have to laugh that there is a thread devoted to Taco and his plus one. I have called the fuzz on this duo MANY times, and never to any avail. I was even told once by a cop who was standing about 50 ft away as they were hurling empty bottles at each other (and into oncoming traffic), that it was all ok because they only seem to exhibit violence towards each other and their hands were tied because of the over crowding of jails due to 'real criminals'. I live on newark ave above a business and they used to ring all the buzzers and 'break in' to hang out in the hallway for warmth. When the police finally showed up about 2 hrs later, got the same story. Nothing they could do because they had left about 5 minutes earlier, even though everyone in the building saw them, knew they didn't live there and wouldn't . More of the fine work of the JCPD.

They live on Jersey Ave, and Wayne, above the old school pharmacy. I think the bruises are from her falling which I've witness a few times when I lived in DM. Sometimes when she tries to pee in between cars she falls over, the last time she fell she split her head open.. ouch!!!

That guy can be a little unsettling. I don't usually mind him as long as he doesn't get started TOO early in the morning. However, the time he got a hold of a vuvuzela, THAT was a bit much...

I just walked home from the PATH and they were walking down the middle of Columbus Ave. Not crossing Columbus but down the middle of the road pushing their BJ's cart yelling at cars. Cars were stopping in the middle of the road honking their horns at them.

Unreal, I got to start videotaping them.
I see them pulling this shit all the time. Most recently on Marin.


On a related note, does anyone know what the deal is with the older white guy that walks around Jersey near the C-Town screaming his head off angrily having arguments with himself? He kinda terrifies me. At least Paco and his girl only hurt themselves. I'm worried one day this guy's gonna come screaming into my face and attack me.
