Reckless Driver Found Guilty For the Murder of Two Children

On Friday, February 23, 2024, Rebecca Grossman was found guilty of murder and manslaughter of two young boys. Rebecca, co-founder of the Grossman Burn Foundation, is facing 34 years to life in prison.

Sheriff’s officials said that six family members were crossing a three-way intersection in Westlake Village. There was no stoplight in the area. When the parents of the two boys heard Rebecca’s car coming towards them, they reached out to protect two of their children. The boys were unfortunately too far away from their parents to be protected in time. Mark, the 11-year-old boy, died at the scene and Jacob, the 8-year-old boy, died in the hospital. 

Nancy Iskander, the mother of the two boys, said the court proceedings “felt like I am attending the funeral of the boys again, day after day.” … “Someone is now held accountable. Mark and Jacob did not die, Mark and Jacob were murdered.”

The District Attorney’s office shared the statement, “This decision underscores our commitment to holding accountable those who drive with total disregard for human life.” They continued to state, “We know that this guilty verdict can never replace their lives but we hope it may provide some peace for the Iskander family as they continue a life-long journey of healing from this tragedy.
