It was on October 27, 1996, when then thirty-nine year old Tony Valera was riding his bicycle at night and his life was robbed from him by a hit and run driver. The popular kick-boxing instructor had been riding on darkened portion of Alessandro Boulevard in Moreno Valley. He had been heading east on Alessandro Boulevard close to the dirt extension of Morrison Street which is a half a mile from his home. Around 7:30pm a large, white four-door sedan hit him from behind. To this date, the driver who killed Tony has never been identified. Following his death, roadblocks were set up in hopes of getting information but nothing panned out. His siblings are still very much dedicated to getting answers as well as justice for their deceased brother.
His death took a heavy emotional toll on his parents.
