Grisly Details Emerge As Police Hunt For Alleged Lake Elsinore Killer

As police search for Lake Elsinore resident Joseph Dorsey in connection with the killing death of a Canyon Lake woman, the Riverside County District Attorney's Office has filed a murder charge.

A Lake Elsinore man who may be on the run will face a murder charge when police find him.

Today, the Riverside County District Attorney’s Office announced it filed one count of murder against 27-year-old Joseph David Dorsey in connection with the “brutal slaying” of Canyon Lake resident Christine Stewart, whose body was found Wednesday stuffed inside a suitcase located in a Poway motel room.

It is alleged that 47-year-old Stewart was killed in Riverside County and her body taken by Dorsey to a Best Western Motel in Poway.

“Evidence found at Dorsey’s apartment on Main Street in Lake Elsinore when a search warrant was served there on Aug. 6, 2012, leads authorities to believe that Stewart had been there before she was murdered,” the DA’s office announced today.

During the course of their investigation, homicide detectives learned Dorsey had checked into a room at the Best Western on Poway Road, but he never checked out, according to the DA’s office.

“Motel employees took possession of property Dorsey left inside the room, including a large rolling suitcase, approximately 3 feet long and 18 inches wide and deep,” the DA’s office reported. “Homicide investigators found the body of Stewart, who was about 5 feet, 2 inches tall and 100 pounds, inside the suitcase.”

Stewart worked as a behavioral health specialist at a county drug rehabilitation facility in Hemet, according to the DA’s office.

A warrant for Dorsey’s arrest was issued today. The pair had been reported missing by police earlier this week. The two had been in a dating relationship at the time of their disappearance, which was reported to police Aug. 4.

The DA’s office and the Riverside County Sheriff’s Department are actively seeking the public’s help in locating Dorsey, who should be considered dangerous and has a prior prison record. He is described as 6’1” tall, about 200 pounds, with brown hair and green eyes. He is possibly driving a dark blue 2003 Ford Explorer SUV with gray primer on the hood and front fender. The vehicle has a California license plate of 6UDY773.

Anyone with information about Dorsey or his vehicle is urged to call Investigator James Merrill of the Sheriff's Central Homicide Unit at (951) 955-2777, or Investigator Ronnie Rosas of the Perris Station at (951) 210-1000.

Golly gee whiz there Vince! Not one, not two but three brand spankin new posters, all with the same "writen style" & all singingin the praises of Vince! What ARE the odds of that? Yeppers, we're all fooled fur sure!
Vince August 13, 2012 at 04:09 PM
Dear "tot"...no big ol' capitals for your name today, there Buckaroo, since you are so small minded. I think in all candor there "tot", you are exhibiting the telltale signs of having developed a questionable fixation on All Things Uncle Vinny. When it gets to the point that you deem yourself to be expert enough on his "style" to ACCUSE him of using multiple identities on a dang Patch Board, then it is time perhaps that you take a little break, and try to delve into and understand just what motivates "tot" when it comes to this unhealthy affinity you seem to have driving you to distraction---and to help you clear your mind on this this whole dealio, 'cause I am a helpful sort, go ahead and drop a note to ANY Moderator, on any Patch, and ask if they do, or do not have information as to a Poster's I.P. #---and if they know their stuff on I.P.'s, then they will know right off that my I.P. is NOT A FLOATER---therefore it "pings" up the very same way on each and every Post I offer up, regardless the Screen Name being used Cont.
Vince August 13, 2012 at 04:10 PM
CONT.: Now, as I indicated previously, this here is not my favoritist sorta Topic to go full blowed Net Warrior on folks who apparently want me to get medieval on 'em---and that, regardless how "game", or in need of a reality check they may be. So, I will not go there on this Thread. But I do think Patch would do well to create a Forum solely for people like you, who want to argue, belittle, insult, and puff out they's scrawny little chests, to more or less prove something to themselves as to how verbally astute, and even rough and tumble they feel a need to be, in some aspect of their life...Maybe a "Thunder-Dome" type o' Free-For-All so some of you unhappy kids can release your pent up emotions, and frustrations by doing battle over...well, most nothing at all seems to work for some already---so why not stick with it?

"Cee-Cee" Don't Forget To Change That "Manpon" Buddy! Lol!!! Very Funny Vince! :D

Ah Mr. A, and to think that all of this time, people thought that was red 'paint' on your face! HA! Let me know when you're finished! }~0
Constant Comment August 14, 2012 at 03:43 AM
Gee Teller, ought not get the little tyke mad. He might throw another long boring tantrum then have to make up another audience again. His mind is pretty stretched as it is, ya know? }~)

Ouch! Slap heard round the block!
angela August 15, 2012 at 06:10 PM
Damn you all! Stop being petty about everything! I do not know why I even bother reading any of your comments. Every now and then someone has a bit of a soul, but for the most part it seems that everyone would rather bicker and act like they are 5 years old. Seriously my nieces that range from 2-15 have more class then most of you. I like Patch for the local news, but then it makes me remember what a bunch of trolls live in our area.
Diana August 15, 2012 at 10:35 PM
Vince, where did you go????
Vince August 15, 2012 at 11:41 PM
Diana Darlin'...I figgered my work was done here, 'specially since my TWO Sissy La La quite unworthy opponents ran outta steam---not that either of 'em ever had much steam TO run out of. I think it really takes it's toll on 'em, and drains their energy, what with all that patting one another on the back when one or ta other uncorks a real zinger....like this one fer instance: "Ouch! Slap heard round the block!" Short of sending 'em a Fart In A Jar, that one there is tough ta top...ya know? Take care darlin', and thanks for the concern. Uncle Vinny But thanks for asking! I am just waiting for a Topic to show up in need of y wit, and wisdon---and then too, there is always the possibility that someone with some real game will appear on the scene, and make it a worthwhile endeavor...
Diana August 16, 2012 at 12:30 AM
@Vinny..I look forward to your return, I miss your stories and love to laugh, you are a ray of sunshine to the Patch.
Vince August 16, 2012 at 01:07 AM
I do read around...saw where you gave some lady, forget her name..."what for" on that recall Thread....Atta girl!! Problem I find on these Patches, is no matter how nicely I put forth MY opinion , there is always some dolt that takes issue, and then wants to go head to head by offering up unfriendly fodder...and usually after a retort or two from me their head comes out lookin' sorta like an upside down egg carton... I would love to send you over to MY Forum/Message Board, but Diana, that place is not for the faint of heart---there are some really evil MoFo's hangin' 'round there...and we all have been battling on The Boards since they first came into being in the mid 90's, seems to me. It actually is an Art Form, that Board Battling, sorta like...and there are Archives chock full, throughout The Battling Boards, with some of my more memorable Postings...And some, quite honestly, have become Famed Classics in their own right...jes' sayin'. I have gotten kicked off'n more Boards with my Songs, Stories, and Poems, then you can shake a stick at---so you ain't seen the really good ones!! But alas, what with the Moderating on these Patches, i do tone it down to a very, VERY, low roar, and even more like a "hum"---An' mostly I am only interested in sharing ideas with folks who are also interested in sharing ideas...but again, there are always those who consider themselves to be Net Warriors, and when they open up their pie hole, they prove to be anything but...
Diana August 16, 2012 at 01:53 AM
In reading your posts there are so many phrases that I can relate to that no one else would use, like sissy lala, zelda gurchbottom, and some others, kind of strange because not most people that post on here really come in with phrases that I have used myself in a slang, funny kind of 70's way :) just sayin I love your stories and your knowledge and I bet you have alot more to say if people would just lighten up and take a chill pill.
Constant Comment August 16, 2012 at 03:21 AM
"Grisy is a species of bear." ucla grad, your name really seems to fit you huh? }~)
Constant Comment August 16, 2012 at 03:27 AM
Yeah if you like womens feminine products jokes. Keepin it real classy & hysterical there! Why do you think he's been kicked off so many of the other Patches? Why do you think he has so many names? Why do you think no one will hire him to write for them professionally? Perhaps if he literally cleaned up his act, he could literally go places. Best of luck bud.......}~)
Constant Comment August 16, 2012 at 03:34 AM
@Diana, heres a hint: Mr. Al Lee (hundreds of posts). You really should be careful about engaging some unstable people on here. TMI...}~|
Constant Comment August 16, 2012 at 03:36 AM
No one liked "Al Lee" either....get it yet?
Vince August 16, 2012 at 04:10 AM
It appears The Short Bus has dumped it's cargo right here at The Patch once again...and it calls itself: Constant Comment. O,K, Cee-Cee, let's go over the charges: "Manpon" seems to have stuck in yer craw---easy explanation for that is, you inserted it in the wrong place---and trust me, a "Manpon" cannot reasonably be characterized as a "feminine product." Therefore, STRIKE ONE. Do tell, just how many Patch Venues have i been kicked out of, if you will be so kind? Near as I know, and I s'pose I should be made aware on the occasion of being kicked out, but near as I know, the exact total is...none. Got yerself yet another strike...which we'll go ahead and refer to as: STRIKE TWO. "Al Lee"? I was almost at a loss on this one, although there is a fella name'a ALVIN LEE, and he fronted a band name'a Ten Years After a'ways back, and maybe they are still active? But then again, there was another "Lee" name'a "Bill", pitched for Boston, quite a character too...and since you are confused about "Manpons", perhaps you got mixed up on "AL's" and "BILL's", which does make sense, because you seem to be on a fixated frenzy attack anyways, and so, all things ARE possible...but still, benefit of the doubt or not, that's a big ol' STRIKE THREE, and you can even attribute it to...Bill Lee if you like! And now I have to propose a name change for you---let's go with "Constant Throbbing PIA" (AKA: A Massive 'Roid), since it does fit you like a...dare I say: "Manpon"?
Vince August 16, 2012 at 04:15 AM
AND lest we forget there Constant Throbbing PIA, I have only ONE name I use at Patch Sites, and if you can show otherwise, then please do...this twisted fixation ya got's on all things Uncle Vinny even embarrasses me, and that right there is tough to do.
Diana August 16, 2012 at 04:16 AM
Cc. No I dont get it, there is no comparison...are you kiddin me, Al is a flipping physco.
Constant Comment August 16, 2012 at 04:24 AM
Yeah Vince, you sure got us ALL FOOLED! Just like you wanted! If you don't want some sound advice, thats ok. I'm not interested in enabling you. I'm not interested in gays either as I have a wife. And for the next MAN that you try to engage, you might want leave out all the underlying sexual references such as your "manpon", "massive" & "throbbing" statements. Barking up the wrong tree here buddy! So I guess you could say that you STRUCK OUT! }~0
Constant Comment August 16, 2012 at 04:26 AM
...and this tweeker isn't? Gimmie a break......}~)
Constant Comment August 16, 2012 at 04:29 AM
See what I mean Diana? Did you ever read Shakespear? Do you know what protesting TOO MUCH means? }~0
Teller of Truth August 16, 2012 at 04:41 AM
@Constant Comment, not worth it! Anyone can TELL by the sheer volumes of ramblings that someones got a hard on for you. He knows theres no way you can show ALL of his names. With people like this, all you have to do is read the words that hes chosen. The "twisted fixation" should TELL you all you need to know. No need to come back @ me Vince, cause I'm doing something more productive now, like getting some sleep. Might want to try that sometime.
Vince August 16, 2012 at 04:45 AM
Great!!! This will REALLY look good on my Resume: "I was once psychoanalyzed by a MASSIVE, THROBBING, WALKING, TALKING (and typing) 'Roid!!" And in your very next offering, do use the 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th letter in that big ol' fancy, schmancy, word I just dazzled ya with...now promith, you thilly thavage you!
Vince August 16, 2012 at 04:48 AM
Tot...I kinda figgered you could type while sleep walking....since most of the stuff you toss up seems to come from someone in a semi-conscious state...
Vince August 16, 2012 at 05:02 AM
Well...all good things must end...time for my meds, then off to another night of being restrained until the dawn's early light---these darn Doctor's at this here nuthouse i am in don't have near the sense of humor as you two imbeciles! Now ya got's plenty of time to come up with better stuff then you have thus far: "Tweeker, and Homo, and Psycho (Oh My!!)"...You little scamps are good!
UCLA Grad August 21, 2012 at 07:55 PM
Thanks for the heads up Vince. I immediately noticed something was amiss when a couple of these patch "e-thugs" took offense to my very first post and began humping my leg. Watching some of the regulars vie for alpha male/female superiority would be funny, if it wasn't so pathetic.
Victoria August 26, 2012 at 10:46 PM
Steve as her cousin I would like it if you didn't talk that way about besides when did it become ok for men to chase after younger women? can you tell me that.
Walter Stevens November 14, 2012 at 02:45 PM
All of you tweekers from the tony crew in menifee need to show respect. go chat about ur terrible guitar and blues garbage elsewhere u suck! God bless that poor womans family grief
