What does " (Girmais") bouncing around in Santa Clara Country" mean? This kind of wording is a negative implication regarding the victim's life-style.

I worked at the Short Branch and remember when this happened. I would park either in the front lot or back by the dumpster. When I arrived one morning, the back was blocked off with yellow caution tape. Word was that a Safeway produce employee was throwing trash out and found the body. To this day, dumpsters freak me out..

@Martha I think it means he was a homosezual.
