News Release

July 9, 2006

Dear Team Managers:

I have some incredibly sad and unthinkable news. CSSA General Manager, my husband, Ed Eid, has died of a massive stroke in Munich, Germany. The two things that comfort me most are that he was doing something he loved (soccer), and he was enjoying himself because he had gotten "far, far away" from all the hassles of home (soccer). We were in Munich to attend the semi-final match between France and Portugal. Sadly, he died on July 5, 2006, and never got to see the game.

I would like to sincerely thank all of you who have expressed your condolences to me and to our family. It has meant so much to realize how many lives he has touched. He was truly a unique man. He was gracious, compassionate, kind, fiercely unprejudiced, intensely competitive, focused, dignified, and had the best sense of humor of anyone I have ever known.

I need to ask two favors of you. Please notify your team and other pertinent people of this loss. We are in the "off-season" and that's the best way to get the word out. There will be a funeral and a public memorial service for Ed. Arrangements are being made today. We are repatriating his remains from Germany, today. The details will be posted on the Website as soon as they are confirmed. The second favor I would ask is that you forgive me for not being as attentive to the games that are playing this week. I am a little overwhelmed at the moment. Hopefully you can just go to the game and make things work out!

Again, I so appreciate all of your prayers and condolences.

Judge orders murder trial in road rage killings

ARAPAHOE COUNTY - A man accused of killing two men in a road rage crash will stand trial for first-degree murder, a judge ruled Wednesday.

Thirty-two-year-old Jason Reynolds of Parker is facing charges for the deaths of Kelvin Norman and Gregg Boss in a Nov. 8, 2005 crash on E-470.

In Judge Marilyn Leonard's ruling she said she did not believe Reynolds specifically intended to kill Norman and Boss, but she did think he knew his dangerous driving could kill someone.

In addition to ruling the case should move to trial, the judge also denied Reynolds bail.

"The D.A.'s office did an outstanding job pursuing the appropriate murder charges against Jason Reynolds and I hope this case will serve as a catalyst to the state legislature to enact new laws that address road rage," said Mary LaFrance, Boss' girlfriend.

Reynolds has a long history of aggressive driving. At a hearing Monday, a CSP trooper testified about multiple driving incidents involving the defendant.

Reynolds will be back in court March 10 for his arraignment. In addition to two counts of first-degree murder, Reynolds also faces two counts of vehicular homicide.

He is being held at the Douglas County Jail because his father is a sheriff's deputy at the Arapahoe County Jail.

ARAPAHOE COUNTY - A man who police say is to blame for a double fatal crash has been charge with two counts of first-degree murder.

9News Reporter Chip Yost says a man is facing serious charges stemming from a deadly aggressive driving incident. 4 p.m. December 13, 2005.

Jason Benjamin Reynolds, 32, is charged for the deaths of 35-year-old Greg Boss of Lone Tree and 50-year-old Kelvin Norman of Highlands Ranch.

The crash that killed the two men happened on E-470 near Parker Road around 5 p.m. on Nov. 8.

Police say Norman and Reynolds' vehicles collided while driving westbound. The collision caused Norman's vehicle to veer into eastbound traffic, landing on Boss' SUV.

Both Boss and Norman were pronounced dead at the scene.

Reynolds has officially been charged with two counts of first-degree murder with extreme indifference. Each count could lead to life in prison. He has also been charged with two counts of vehicular homicide, which could lead to between 4 and 12 years in prison.

Murder Charges Filed In E-470 Road Rage Crash

Jason Benjamin Reynolds Blamed For Crash That Killed 2
POSTED: 12:55 pm MST December 13, 2005

DENVER -- Felony charges were filed Tuesday against a driver involved in an accident that killed two people on E-470 Tollway last month.

The Arapahoe County District Attorney's Office said it filed six charges against Jason Benjamin Reynolds, 32, including two counts of first-degree murder, with a possible punishment of life in prison or the death penalty. The accident was the result of road rage, according to the DA's office.

"Certainly, when Mr. Reynolds got into his car, I don't think that he thought on that day that he would end up being involved in a matter that would result in charges of first-degree murder. But this is what happens when people involve themselves in aggressive driving," said Arapahoe County District Attorney Carol Chambers. "There's nothing more serious than this. People get angry and they want to act and they need to stop and think because the consequences can be devastating."

One of the things the DA took into consideration was Reynold's track record for dangerous driving. The DA said he has a history of using cars as weapons.

He has 13 traffic offenses in the last 10 years, officers said.

And on Sept. 23, the Colorado State Patrol sent him a road rage warning letter after several people reported him. Reynolds was also due in court on Dec. 14 to be sentenced for reckless driving and posession of a dangerous weapon. In that case Parker police officers said he rammed the the rear of a Honda with his truck three times -- but no one in that incident died.

These latest charges stem from an incident in which he did ultimately kill two people with his dangerous habit, police said.

On Nov. 8, investigators said Reynolds was chasing a Toyota 4-Runner when he swerved in front of the vehicle to cut him off and then slammed on his brakes.

The Toyota 4-Runner bumped Reynolds' bumper, lost control, crossed the center median and flipped into oncoming traffic, landing on top of a Ford Explorer.

The driver of the 4-Runner, Kelvin Norman, 50, of Highlands Ranch and the driver of the Ford Explorer, Greg Boss, 35, of Lone Tree, were both killed instantly.

Reynolds was not hurt in the crash. Reynolds allegedly told officers at the scene that he was upshifting his Jeep when his boot jammed the brake pedal.

But other drivers told the CSP that it appeared that Norman was trying to get away from Reynolds when Reynolds swerved and cut in front of him.

"What people don't realize a lot of times is when you're doing 70 or 80 mph going down the freeway, if you make contact with the rear bumper of someone else because you've been brake-checked, you can easily lose control," said CSP Jeff Goodwin.

In the arrest affidavit it said, "Reynolds seemed irritated and his attitude was indifferent to the deceased drivers of the other vehicles. He did not seem upset even though we were only 100 feet from away the other vehicles and the deceased bodies."

Officers said that they saw Reynolds cut off another driver on Monday, Dec. 12, when they went to arrest him and they smelled marijuana on his breath.

Several troopers said the Nov. 8 crash on E-470 near Parker was the most gruesome they had ever seen.

"We did have a couple of our younger officers that had never seen anything like this crash. It was devastating to them and it took them a couple of days talking about it to get it out of their systems," said CSP Sgt. Donald Enloe.

Reynolds also faces charges of vehicular homicide and violent crime causing death in connection with the case.
