CANYON COUNTRY (CBSLA.com) — A vigil was held Sunday evening for Johnny Lee Greenback, a 27-year-old Canyon Country man who was allegedly murdered by his sister last Sunday. Sonny Greenback, Johnny Lee’s 56-year-old father, was also shot in the head, allegedly by his daughter. Fortunately, Sonny only suffered a graze wound, but that is not where his suffering ended. One of his four children is dead, another is accused in the murder. KCAL9’s Brittney Hopper reported from the vigil where Greenback friends and family expressed shock that when Sonny went home Wednesday from the hospital, he found a four-page eviction notice on his Danielson Street apartment door.
Canyon County Woman Charged With Shooting Brother To Death The shooting was cited as the reason for the eviction, according to the notice. A clause in his rental agreement specified the apartment was not to be used for “unlawful activities.” Jessica Paige Greenback, 25, was arraigned Tuesday on murder and attempted murder charges. On Sunday, friends rallied around Sonny. They’re trying to raise money for funeral expenses — and his spirits. “He would rather have died, than his son die. He told me he would rather lay down his own life instead of his son’s life,” said close family friend Gary Clement. “Nobody should have to bury a child. I watched my parents bury two and nobody should have to go through this. Nobody,” said family friend Elizabeth Baker added. Sonny was too visibly distraught to talk on camera but he told Hopper that he wanted to thank friends and family for all their support through a harrowing time. If you’d like to donate for funeral expenses, the memorial account is set up at Wells Fargo. The account name: The Johnnie Lee Greenback Memorial Account. Friends also set up a GoFundMe account which can be accessed by clicking here.
