FPD Seeks Public Assistance in Cold Case Homicide

On 05/28/2004, members of the “Sexy Banging” dance crew hosted a party at the Sunny Hills Racquet Club, located at 1900 Camino Loma, Fullerton, California. The party was advertised with fliers and on an internet site; an estimated crowd of approximately 300 people went to the party location. Due to the large number people that showed up, the party was closed down by Racquet Club management. As the party was being disbursed, several fights broke out in the parking lot between various groups divided along racial lines, mainly African-Americans against Hispanics. JAMES POTTER was stabbed to death after he walked away from some of his friends in order to talk to a girl.

The investigation into the incident revealed that a gang member from the Los Angeles area may have been responsible for the stabbing of POTTER. A suspect was arrested for POTTER’s murder; however the case was subsequently dismissed due to insufficient evidence.
