The man pictured is Jesse Reynolds. He alleges between 9:30 PM and 10:00 PM on the evening of Saturday, May 21, 2011 that Bruce Laymon beat him at the top of the steep easement trail to Larsen's Beach. This is several hours after Bruce Laymon installed the illegal fencing blocking off the lateral trail to Larsen's Beach. The alleged incident reportedly took place at the top of the bluff near the corner of the newly erected fence.

On Saturday May 21, 2011 Bruce Laymon of Paradise Ranch, lessee of Waioli Corporation, erected this fencing across the entrance to the lateral trail to Larsen's Beach in violation of Condition 6 of its Kauai County issued SMA permit. Click the link below "SMA Permit Paradise Ranch..." to read the permit. The Chairperson of the State Department of Land and Natural Resources, DLNR, William Aila, along with two Deputy Attorneys General, issued a memo June 27, 2011 clarifying the State position on claiming roads and trails through Registered Lands (Land Court). Waioli Corporation's Lepeuli property is "land-courted". They also commented on the lack of approval by DLNR and its Na Ala Hele Trails Program for the location of this fencing, also a requirement of Condition 6 of the permit that was violated. See link below.
Her husband died at Larsen's Beach 11 years ago.
She wanted to see the beach "and touch the water" where her husband died.
Unfortunately a head injury a couple of years ago has left her weak.
Her family tried to lead her down the steep easement trail (one in front, one behind) but she couldn't make it. She would have been able to walk down the lateral trail as it is a safe, gentle trail. She could not since Bruce Laymon blocked it off the very same day.
