Many people in Sunriver today are mourning the death of a prominent community member. Authorities say George Mendenhall, 72, died yesterday after being stabbed by his handyman at his 2nd home near Palm Springs. 1110 KBND's Lori Raab talked to a close family friend about the difference he made to the Sunriver community. “I was shocked; it’s inconceivable how anyone could be angry at George” says Sunriver piano teacher Jodie Bischof . She worked with George Mendenhall in starting the Sunriver Prep School in the 1980’s. He was also a big supporter of the Sunriver Music Festival. He was well known and well-liked by many in the community where he and his wife, Kate lived for about 30 years.   “He’s the nicest guy in the world and he’s very low-key; non confrontative. I’ve never, ever seen him angry or raise his voice. He’s just the nicest, most mellow person. And generous, and loving and there’s just no way that anyone could be mad at him. It just makes no sense at all.” Police say the crime happened in Mendenhall's Southern California home and was able to identify his attacker shortly before he died. After a six hour search, police ended up shooting and killing the suspect at a California rest stop.
