Manager at Loma Linda VA center in Redlands found to be convicted murderer

Edwin Winslow Bennett was still on parole for the 1989 gangland-style
execution of a business rival when he began a meteoric rise through the
managerial ranks at the VA Loma Linda Healthcare System.

Bennett, 57, who says on his LinkedIn page he has an MBA  from an
online school in Santa Ana called California Coast University and an
honorable discharge from the Air Force, honed his skills during the 22
years he spent behind bars, including a stint at Soledad State Prison.

His online resume boasts myriad skills honed behind prison walls,
including providing administrative and computer support to Soledad’s
associate warden.

In 2013, two years after Bennett was paroled, VA officials took
notice and hired him as a supervisor at the VA Loma Linda Healthcare
System’s outpatient clinic.

Then, in November 2018 — the same month he completed parole — Bennett
was promoted to project manager for the VA’s Ambulatory Care Center in
Redlands, a 221,000-square-foot facility that provides veterans with
dental, mental health and primary medical care. He holds the same
position today.

Bennett did not return phone calls or emails regarding his criminal history or job with the VA.

Several Loma Linda Healthcare System employees also declined to comment, saying they fear retaliation.
