Family continues to seek justice in decade-old Navy murder

In the 10 years that have passed since a 22-year-old Navy sailor was slain, his family’s pursuit for justice hasn’t wavered, the victim’s mother said Wednesday. 

Ron Harnish was fatally shot after confronting men who were flashing gang signs in the community of Golden Hill on Dec. 27, 2006. The Navy supply clerk had recently qualified for SEAL training.

“He deserves justice,” said his mother, Tracy Wild. “He was so brave and loyal. He was such a good person. Of any person that I’ve met in the world that deserves justice, it’s him.”

Wild, who lives in Chico, is in San Diego for the tenth anniversary of her son’s death to continue fueling interest in the case. She remains hopeful that someone who knows what happened will be swayed to come forward. A reward of up to $53,000 has been offered for information that leads to an arrest.

“I believe that circumstances change, that people mature and that we reevaluate our relationships,” she said. “I see someone who pulls a gun on an unsuspecting person as a coward. Perhaps people who have a relationship to this case have come to see it that way and are more willing to come forward.”
