Bennett v. Southern, CEO Steve Burd, Roseville Train Bomb and Sterling Hall Bombing (murder)

Pete Bennett was contacted by Safeway Store Development via his full page ad in the 1982 Contra Costa Central Yellow Page.

By 1987 the amount of contract flow via all his customers reached into the millions.  He was considering expansion within months of his July 1987 expansion.  During litigation in the Matter of Bennett v. Southern Pacific millions in contracts were lost.  Along the way several similar sounding companies popped up.

Learn how FBI Agent Frank Doyle Jr and FBI.connects to the same centennial bombings under the command of Major General Dan Helix. 

One company leads to an address in San Ramon CA owned by a Mormon Attorney known to Bennett, his wife and sons but also worked with Steve Burd at Southern Pacific between 1973 to sometime around 1986.  That also means that former Mayor Dan Helix of Concord Ca would be knowledgeable of the contractual arrangement between Helix and SP.

In 1986 Helix was given a sweetheart land deal on the old iron horse trail between Treat Blvd and Solano Way up to Hwy 4.  In 2013, Adam Elliot the grandson of Mr. Helix of unknown causes. His son attended Clayton Valley High School where decedent Charles Silverman  died in a tragic accident, is the same school where Samantha Lewis attended before attending Chico State.  Ms. Lewis was tragically hit by a train but on October 31st, 2019 five persons perished in the Halloween Mansion Party where once again one victim and his family perished connect to Clayton Valley High School.

That case under investigation looks on the surface to be another Contra Costa Hate Crime incident. Time will tell what really happened but the lack of discussion on suspect bears ominous tones.

OccupationPresident, Chairman & CEO at Safeway Inc (1992–2013), President & CEO at Burd Health LLC (2013-present)
Political partyRepublican[citation needed]
Board member ofKohl's
Steven A. Burd (born 1949) is an American businessman.[1] He served as Chairman, President and CEO of Safeway Inc. from October 26, 1992 to May 14, 2013.[1][2] He is a member of the Republican Party.[citation needed]

Early life[edit]

Burd has a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics from Carroll University in 1971[3] and a master's degree in Economics from the University of Wisconsin–Milwaukee in 1973.[4][5]


Burd was President of Safeway from October 26, 1992 until May 14, 2013, and CEO from April 30, 1993 until May 14, 2013.[2] He joined the Board of Directors on September 7, 1993 and served as Chairman of the Board between May 12, 1998 and May 14, 2013.[2] While CEO of Safeway in 2009, he earned a total compensation of $10,901,892, which included a base salary of $1,449,000, a cash bonus of $358,627, stock awards of $491,611 and options granted of $6,922,200. Steven Burd will receive another $7.5 million in stock as a result of the transaction that combines Safeway and Albertsons supermarket chain. [1]
Burd spearheaded the innovative "Healthy Measures" insurance plan offered to Safeway employees.[6] In this plan, employees get discounts on their health insurance if they show qualified performance in four "tests": tobacco usage, healthy weight, blood pressure and cholesterol levels.[6] Employees can get as much as an $800 annual premium reduction. He founded the Coalition to Advance Healthcare Reform in order to promote similar health policies nationally.[6]
In January 2010, the Washington Post reported that Burd's assertion in June 2009[6] that Safeway's per capita health-care costs between 2005 and 2009 were flat was in fact true, but had nothing to do with incentives for employees. Those incentives weren't implemented until 2009, and the company forecast that per capita expenses for its employees would rise by 8.5 percent for the 2009 year.[7]
As of 2013, Burd sits on the Board of Directors of Kohl's.[1][2] In September 2013, Burd also founded Burd Health LLC with the intent to help companies lower the costs of their own healthcare plans.

Theranos Scandal[edit]

Burd led the initiative to partner with Theranos and build wellness centers in Safeway stores. The deal made SafeWay the exclusive grocery store provider of Theranos technology and spawned a secret, internal project called “T-Rex” to create wellness centers in their stores. Safeway spent $350 million dollars renovating over 800 stores to support these centers. According to former employees, he managed the partnership directly with Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes. 
In 2012, Burd told investors and that the grocery chain was “contemplating a significant…wellness play.” During the implementation of the project, Safeway had Theranos conduct blood testing at their headquarters clinic that compared Theranos test results with those of traditional blood testing methods. However, these results showed inconsistencies between the two methods. According to two former executives, Burd was told about the inconsistent results. Burd told them that he had been reassured by Elizabeth Holmes and continued to support the project. 
In April 2013, when asked by analysts about the wellness play he had alluded to in earlier calls, he said “It hasn’t happened yet.” Burd retired from Safeway the next month. No Theranos devices were ever successfully deployed in Safeway stores and in November 2015, Safeway and Theranos formally ended their relationship.[8]

Personal life[edit]

Burd is married to Chris and has two children. He is a born-again Christian[9] and lives in Alamo, California.[10]

CHP Ford Explorer

The Explorer CHP Vehicles are the same ones where officer Youngstrom was driving when he was killed.  

This is a similar CHP unit serviced at Walnut Creek Ford.  Pete Bennett today has a long running set of vehicles incidents ranging from Arson, Failed Electrical, Blown Head Gaskets, Cracked Manifold, Sabotaged ABS Systems, and Arson engined crankcase filled with accelerant.

Far too many mechanical money draining non insurable incidents.

About the Author

Resident of Contra Costa Since 1978

Pete Bennett arrived in Contra Costa in June 1978 where he began working for local contractors where he created work by hustling leaves, pushing paint, endless runs to the dump, moving dirt and grime while turning sweat into money.
Along the way he went for his dream of owning a woodworking shop but the shop grew rapidly after leasing a small 1000 SF shop in Concord in less than a year he purhchased an existing shop on Shary Circle.

He used to wear suits now he wears C-Collars
By 1987 his "woodworking shop" expanding to 9000sf with millions in future revenue on the horizon when tragedy struck in a personal injury case in the Matter of Bennett v. Southern Pacific
He lost his suits when his dry cleaner committed suicide around the time he was appearing on CNN
His business eventually collapse in connection to rouge police officers connected to the City of Pittsburg where Bennett was forced out of business by external forces.
One key factor was the pattern of incidents and breakins which included Arson

Sheriff details investigation of Marshall murder-suicide

Sheriff details investigation of Marshall murder-suicide

By Sean Janssen, The Union Democrat March 29, 2013 02:44 pm

Philip Marshall acted alone in killing his two teenage children, a pet Shih Tzu and himself after a history of mental illness and a messy split with the children’s mother, according to a six-page report released Friday afternoon by the Calaveras County Sheriff’s Office.

The report details the investigation that took place after the bodies of all three family members were discovered Feb. 2 at the Marshall’s Forest Meadows home.

The Sheriff’s Office investigation concluded Marshall shot his son Alex, 17, and daughter Macaila, 14, as they slept on the living room couch before turning tahe 9mm Glock semiautomatic handgun he purchased in 2011 in Turlock on himself.

Toxicology test results showed both children had moderate levels of alcohol in their system at the time of their deaths, with Macaila registering a .05 blood-alcohol content and Alex a .03. In addition, Macaila had apparently taken diphenhydrameine, an over-the-counter antihistamine and sleep aid, commonly sold as Benadryl.

Philip Marshall’s toxicology screen showed painkillers hydrocodone and morphine in his blood as well as hydroxybupropion, an antidepressant.

Investigators looked at Marshall’s medical records and determined he had been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

A lengthy history of run-ins with wife Sean Plummer, the children’s mother, is documented dating back to 2008, when she began divorce proceedings, only to later withdraw the petition and reinstate it in October 2012.

On Nov. 11, 2008, Plummer’s sister, Erin Chamberlain, then a Murphys resident, told police Marshall threatened Plummer she “will not see December.” Eleven days later, Chamberlain said she felt threatened “for the safety of her children” as Marshall repeatedly drove past her home. Phone messages Marshall left at Chamberlain’s home in December included statements that "if you don’t call me, mom is going to have problems, we don’t want this,” “Sean, you are going to get what's coming to you" and "Macaila, this is daddy. We are going to have lunch. We need to talk right now. If not, something is going to happen.” On Dec. 7, the report states Marshall violated an emergency protection order.

On Jan. 27, 2013, the report stated Marshall purchased a distinctive type of Fiocchi 9mm ammo from Big 5 Sporting Goods in Sonora, confirmed by a review of surveillance video at the store. The ammunition company later donated some of the same ammunition for a ballistics test at Marshall’s home investigators used to conclude it was possible for the shots to be fired without neighbors hearing them.

"During the multiple tests the detectives found that it took an average of a total of two seconds to shoot each victim, demonstrating that it was possible to shoot both children prior to one of them waking up,” the report stated. The home had been unlocked with no signs of forced entry when investigators arrived and valuables remained in plain sight, according to the report. A safe was left open with a handwritten note on a medical marijuana recommendation card that read “Hi Sean!”

“There was no evidence to support a theory that anyone else could have committed this crime, or that any other persons were present at the time of the shootings. Macaila and Alex Marshall both appeared to be sleeping at the time they were shot, indicating no signs of a struggle with a possible intruder. There was no evidence of a struggle with Phillip Marshall, and no signs of forced entry into the home,” the report concluded. “Various items of value were still present inside the home, and no evidence of any additional weapons was found.

Lastly, there was no evidence that Phillip Marshall or his children were moved or repositioned after the shooting, which would indicate an altered crime scene. Based on the final findings of the investigators, evidence shows that Philip Marshall, and not an outside fourth person, shot and killed Macaila, Alex, the family dog, and then himself. To conclude, it is determined that this case was a double murder-suicide."

A detailed report on the investigation’s conclusions will appear in Monday’s edition of The Union Democrat.
