Four Marines arrested for French Valley murders

Updated Nov. 4

Four Marines stationed at Camp Pendleton were arrested on suspicion of murdering a fellow Marine and his wife at their French Valley.

Jan Pawek Pietrzak and his wife, Quiana Jenkins-Pietrzak, were bound, gagged, then killed by the four men on Oct. 15 for financial reasons, authorities said in a press release Monday evening. Two of the men served in the same unit as Jan Pietrzak.

    This is going to be tried as a hate crime, you’ll see. And from the out-set rightly so. I find it beyond hard to believe that those 4 pieces of garbage came to that house to steal a wedding ring and a camera. They were out for blood, and brutalized a black woman married to a white man. Coincidence? I highly doubt it. I just want to know where the NAACP stands on this? Or Al Sharpton? Are they gonna pay for the lawyers and plead a defense of "the white man oppressed the black man for so long, they finally snapped?" Fry these wastes of air and water sooner than later please….

    where is everyone getting this hate crime thing from?? Nowhere did it state it was about race, from what I hear it was about MONEY!! Their wedding fund to be exact….now I agree these guys need to be sentenced to life, what they did was wrong. and to show up at work the very next day and act surprised when word came around that the sgt and his wife were dead, they’re sick people! They will get what was coming to them! I live around the corner from them and my husband worked with the marines and the sgt, its incredible what people will do for even the littlest of money! My prayers are with their families!

    to shannon.. these weren’t a group of unemployed men. they had jobs, they were marines. robbing someone is different. they just didnt kill them, they raped the woman numberous times, then tortured the two..it doesnt take a rocket scientists to see it had to do about something more than just money.

    It’s been more than a week since I initially heard of the murder of Jan and Quiana, and I still feel saddened. I didn’t know then but I still grieve for them and their families just the same. May these two beautiful young people rest in peace and just be swiftly served on their behalf.

    You folks are Sooooo Naive. This is OBVIOUSLY a hate crime. Four black male marines do a home invasion on a white (polish) co-worker and superior non commissioned officer… who ALSO happens to be married… to a beautiful 26 year old black female… who is going to become a DOCTOR?

    It’s a hate crime, and every single one of those murdering bastards should be castrated publicly and hung from the court house steps. There is no way that this poor woman was not raped and sodomized anally by all four. It’s the most horrible home invasion murder California has seen in 20 years. Execute them all.

    As a Marine I wouldn’t want to see or even go near these four killers. It will be hard for me to not do anything heiniuos to the four accused. Do not even call them ex-Marine, they are nothing but criminals.

    To Tarzan – certainly it was a a hate crime, as any victim of rape can tell you that sex had nothing to do with the act. It was a means to a humiliating and frightful end. The actions of the four animals were those not of robbers but of thugs. They came to humiliate and murder, and place an uppity white man who had the gall to take one of their women. Her crime? She allowed herself to be taken. This is nothing more than a reverse 40’s-50’s linching of a black man for being with a white woman. It was sweeter for the Evil Ones insomuch as the victims were superior people to them in both life and spirit, and any cash lying around was a bonus. His superior position in the Corps must have made it all the more enjoyable for them, as the murdered the United States Marine Corps in the process as well. Unfortunately, since the perpatrators are black, it will never be treated as the hideous thing it is in reality. Is that a good thing or not? It does seems strange to me that heaping on charges of hate will make their execution any more lethal. I have doubts concerning punishments that revolve around thought and motives . . . the crime remains the same regardless of the why. But truely understanding the thoughts and motives of such racists might just be the first step in overcoming them – and if we deliberately blind ourselves to half of the racist coin, it will only take us that much longer to put such things firmly behind us. My deepest sympathies to the survivors of this wonderful couple, my firmest regrets over society’s loss from this crime, and my prayers for the families of the perpatrators who have absolutely no solice in a time as brutal as this.

    Please do not call these pathetic wastes of tissue Marines… These four criminal low-lifes are the exact opposite of everything the Marine Corps teaches us. They are not "typical examples" of what the Corps breeds in us. My deepest sympathies go to the families of the victims in this horrible tragedy. No punishment these animals recieve will be harsh enough…

    I hope the m…..-fu#*ing pieces of GARBAGE get raped in prison every day. I am a Camp Pendleton Marine and this story sickens me to my core. If given the chance, I would gladly serve on a firing squad for these animals. With a smile on my face. They aren’t Marines, former Marines, Ex-Marines…They’re not even human beings. My thoughts and prayers go to the families of the victims. From everything I’ve ever heard, they were both tremendous people who did not deserve to go like this. Nobody deserves to go through what they went through. I can’t sleep some nights when I think about how awful that must have been for them…

I am in total disbelief that the same guy i knew can change and take away two innocent lives. I pray for peace for the beautiful couple. They def. didn’t deserve this at all. And as far as Keshawn?$@#$#%&^ WOW! You disgust me!!!!! I know he was going thru a divorce when he was stationed in Barstow, CA but the thing i am so confused about is that WHY! What was he thinking… & then in court he urinates!~!!!! Seriously….PSYCHO THE SICKO!!!!!! and the other 3 are just as SICK! My deepest symphaty goes to the mother who has to go through this nightmare. And for those 4 SICKOS they should get raped in prison and be used as sex toys and then shot executition style. Even that is nothing for those animals!

    I heard of this story and am just reduced to tears. For the love of all humanity. For the love Of my brothers I gained through the corps and their wives they have. I can not fathom this happening to anyone, I can not believe it happened. So sad.
    I had two Marines from my unit be brought on charges of sexual assault and assault and torture. I had a former 1st sgt. Commit suicide when he was caught sleeping with deployed marines wives. I knew a few marines who started using meth when they returned from Iraq, and smoked their way out of the corps. I knew a few Marines who committed suicide who just couldn’t get back ontrack and didn’t have strong resources to keep them positive.
    I am so sorry for these two. This beautiful couple just voided of everything before their life together got started. My heart and prayers go out to all the jfamilies. All. I’m so sorry. I wish there were things I could do to prevent such I humane behavior from man to man. Just sickens me.

    What sort of answers do you want? The whole crime solved and then rice krispy treats before you go to bed? Give the police a break. Let them figure out what they need to and then you will hear. Oh wait, it was Miss Scarlett in the atrium with the candlestick.

    Quania was my cousin, but more importantly, she was an angel. She had a heart/presence that touched the soul of all who were blessed to know her. Our family is in complete distraught! From the memories of our child hood marsh mellow fights to her adult love for sponge bob her innocent spirit is truly missed. Everyone is so curious as to what happened to her instead of realizing the pain in which her family truly feel. Yes you’re concerned about your neighborhood but in time your area will go back to normal. However we have lost our pride and joy and our lives will never be the same. To the editor, Thank You for finally giving my cousin the respect she deserves by acknowledging her as his wife. Quania was not his room mate, nor just the woman he lived with but indeed his wife. This was a title that she wore proudly. Yes, she was the wife of a marine but in the eyes of her husband she was the only woman he seen. Quania & Jan, you guys are truly missed! May your souls rest in everlasting peace.

    My daughter was friends with Q. Q. was a very caring, loving young woman. Her husband was a U.S. Marine who fought in Iraq for you and I. They deserve our prayers at this time, and the family some space. You will all get your answers soon enough. It should be enough for now to read the horrible words that they feel that they were not randomly targeted. I too was offended by the original information being put out not referencing them as husband and wife, when they knew that they were. I know this is something no one wants to think about, but I would like to know if anyone knows when and where the funeral is going to be I would like to pay my respects and help in anyway possible. My daughter also needs to make arrangements to get down here. If anyone has any information it would be most greatly appreciated. My thoughts and prayers go out to all of the family and especially to her mother. I cannot even imagine the dept of her pain and grief. Pray for healing, and pray for who ever commited such a vicious crime to be caught and to pay.

Thank you for your caring thoughts of my cousin, they are truly appreciated. Through the news, people are forming an opinion of her, not realizing to know her was to know an angel. I can’t recall a time in which I seen her frown and no matter how bad a situation was she always found a reason to smile. Our souls are numb but we’re finding comfort in the memories of her smile and joyous spirit. Lord knows I thank you for acknowledging my cousin for the caring, loving little lady in which our family adored!

    ONE OF THE EX MARINES HAVE FAMILY MEMBERS THAT’S WHITE AND HISPANIC.
    HE ALSO HAVE LOTS OF COUSINS. INTERRACIAL COUPLE IS NOT IT! TRUST ME, IT WAS SOMETHING ELSE AND I HOPE THE INVESTIGATION WILL RESOLVE THIS. THERES NO EXCUSE OR REASON FOR THIS. BUT I WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO TALK TO EX MARINE SYKES! HIS FAMILY IS ASHAMED OF HIM! HE IS SICK!
    HIS WIFE WHICH IS WHITE TOO, FILED CHARGES OF HIM FOR RAPE AGAINST HIM! I DON’T KNOW WHAT HAPPEN TO HIM BUT HE WASN’T LIKE THIS. I HOPE THEY PUT HIM TO SLEEP RIGHT AWAY BUT THAT SEEM TO EASY, LIVING AMOUNG OTHER EVIL SOUNDS LIKE A LIVING HELL AND ALL OF THEM DESERVES THAT…… FAMILY OR NO FAMILY!!!

    Please let that sick bastard SYKES know that all of his friends from NY wish him to rot and burn in hell ! He and the other punks took a beautiful newlywed loving couple that had their whole lives ahead of them away from us. We miss them, think of them and pray for them all day long. I need to know why they did what they did ? Why couldn’t they rob their house (i don’t believe it was the motive) while they were away ? Why did they have to murder them ? why did they wrote racial slurs on their walls? why did they violated Quiana? …WHY ? WHY ? WHY ? If you get any of these answers from that punk murderer Sykes please let me know…. I am praying that justice will be served and all of these murderers won’t get the chance to step a foot out of the prison ever again …. DEATH PENALTY sounds perfect !!!

    I served in the Marine Corps and I can guarantee these Marine ‘suspects’ are in a world of trouble. Every officer and staff NCO wiil be trying to bring em up on more charges. Whether the sheriff gets em or not, to tell the truth it would be better for them if the sheriff does get em. Another person made a comment about how they couldn’t understand murdering someone. I couldn’t agree more. You got to wonder if they already had experience, to be so cold blooded and to actually murder a fellow Marine and his wife. Sickening to know there are people out there capable of this type of crime. I can tell you that the vast majority of Marines are good, decent people and would never dream of doing something like this. They wouldn’t dishonor their country, their corps, or fellow Marines. Condolences to the families of victims and sympathy ONLY to the parents of these murderers !

    what is this world coming to!? people being killed because of race!?? we all bleed the same color. racism needs to stop NOW. there is no excuse in this world for people to be racist. yeah…you can not like someone if you want, but to kill them because a white man marries a black woman or visa versa, no reason to kill at all. remember…we all came from adam and eve! they are the one the committed the sin that we all now carry. this beautiful couple had their whole life in front of them, starting it together as a newly married couple in a new home, doing what they loved to do best, taking care of our country and people. all i can say is your four that murdered them, soon you will be facing God himself and he will tell you to burn in hell.

    to the families…again my thoughts and prayers are with you. i want to tell you a little story. i know your loved ones are in heaven. i know this because my brother is there, he passed away a year ago. i have seen small signs from him that he is still around in spirit. the day of the visitation for jan and quiana i was sitting at a stop light and was saying a prayer for all of you. i looked up to the sky and saw an orange balloon and white balloon floating up to the sky. that was my brothers way of telling me they were in heaven safely. my brother raced an orange porsche 914. the white balloon represented the angels that guided jan and quiana to heaven. God Bless you all.

    I served in the Navy with some very good Marines. It is unthinkable to know that "those men" who were "suppose" to be Marines, who always stand tall, proud and eager to defend our country along side with their fellow service members. This is such a tragedy! I will keep the "murdered" couple in my prayers as well as to their families that suffered a tragic loss.

    I didnt even know this beautiful couple but to see their pictures and hear of what happened to them just makes me sick to my stomach. It is so so sad because I know they were a loving couple just from all the comments I’ve heard, I cant believe that anyone would want to hurt them and from what I’ve heard from the news, the men who did this dont even derserve a trial just end their lives we dont need people like that in this society. This couple looked so happy and they did not deserve this, those stupid men who did this will definitely get whats coming to them.

    Finally, that national media has gotten a hold of this story, it was on Good Morning America today. And I hope that exposure will stop any plea agreements from being made so that these ugly animalistic criminals will get what they deserve. As far as I’m concerned, no punishment would be enough. I believe Jan fought as much as he could to protect his beautiful wife and I pray that they are walking on the beautiful beaches of Heaven together.

    to say that this is a trajic story, is an understatement. i dont even know this couple, but as soon as i heard about it, it broke my heart. not because it was a marine and his wife, but simply because it was two human beings, who lives were ended at the hands of selfish people, who had no regards for how precioius life is and how hard it would be for the families and friends to cope with the loss of their loved ones.. a lot of people keep saying that this story is surprising, but in reality, this is the world we live in. where people die everyday. children, adults, and the elderly, all have their precious lives ended by evil people who have no regards for the gift of life. this is just another example of how people need to realize how jealousy , envy , hate and ignorance, all make people do things, that make them forget that they will one day be held accountable for their actions when they stand before GOD. my prayers go out to the family and friends..may the LORD give you peace and stregnth

    My condolensces to the family! These are not Marines these are couple of individuals who perpetrated as Marines. Marines don’t take lives for not apparent reason whatsoever. I don’t think this had nothing to do with race or jealousy. I believe these individuals planned this out. I pray for the Sgt and his wife. Expect swift justice with these Marines. They should not see the light of day for the rest of their lives. It seems like there has been a lot of civilian legal issues related to Marines. We need to take a look at this because their may be some association with the high operational tempo for this fighting force. Everytime a Marine takes a life like this many come out for them saying that this is not the same person I knew in high school or college. Somethng has changed them and that something is war. Me personally I think these are very bad men and should be held accountable at the highest level. Don’t want to take away from the death of 2 great people and outstanding citizens. Both were serving either their community or the US. God bless them adn continue to pray for their families thru these hard times. and
