Police have arrested a man they say killed another man in San Jose by attacking him with a machete. Christopher Lema, 19, was arrested in the 1000 block of Blossom Hill Road at 8 p.m. Tuesday. He was only a few blocks from where the murder happened on May 16. Lema is suspected of killing 36-year-old Demetrius Porter that day, who was found in the 400 block of Blossom Hill Road at 1:18 a.m. with multiple stab wounds. Porter was pronounced dead there. Both Porter and Lema may have been homeless. Police said that they had no prior connection and the motive for the attack remains unclear.

    Who called Demetrius a saint? Yes he has been in trouble with the law and served his time. Note: Never had he committed murder!
    Is homosexuality a reason to be murdered? God forbid one of your own children become a homosexual. It is God’s way of making U realize YOU ARE NOT THE JUDGE! Those who cast stones should not live in glass homes!!
    Indeed Mr. Porter used drugs right along with Christopher Lema! They used together in fact! I know this because Mr. Porter told me himself. The family knew. I wonder how you know this? My guess is you were right there using along with them!
    So if you are casting stones should Christopher Lema be victim to a murder (he was a dope fiend!)? Hummmmm…. Everything is possible.
    Know I do not wish Mr. Lema any bad. I know we all reap what we sow and I am happy to know that he will reap for his sowing! As we all will. Including you!

  • Mr.porter is no saint he has a wrap record a mile high plus he was homosexual wasnt he and his lover ray doing there thing by the dumpster lol god does house cleaning the way he wants to get rid of mistakes and to boot he was a dirty dopefeen you stayed blessed you hear

  • This message is to Mrs. Lema whom posted above. If your brother is so innocent as you claim, why is it that he was telling his own friends (between the murder and his arrest) that he murdered Demetrius? He only screamed innocent when the police arrested him. They have the machete in which was used to murder my little cousin. Proof is in the pudding. If your family is so “loving” (as you note above) why is it that Chris Lema’s father assaulted (& got arrested for it) a witness to this murder? Hasn’t his father also been to prison for murder? His father was helping hide Chris when they knew he was being sought by the police. Why would anyone whom is innocent hide from the police? I wish your brother all of the pain he caused my family. Your brother is alive, you can hear his voice still, your brother can call you, you can visit your brother. If you all are such a “loving family” why haven’t you shown any respect to my family whom cannot see, hear, visit Demetrius due to your brothers out of control drug habit?!! Demetrius has a huge family with many loved ones everywhere. Karma spares no1. It is in the bible…. reap and sow. He shall reap what he sowed. RIP Bink gone yet never ever forgotten.

  • That was one of my good friends that was murdered and if your brother is innocent than hopefully justice will correct itself but believe me if he is guilty I hope he dies on the way to the pen!!!!!!!!!!

  • In my opinion the court system and laws here in California are corrupted. They charge innocent people with charges they didn’t commit just to cover there asses and to make it look like SJPD is doing there jobs went there not there destroying loving family’s! My baby brother Christopher Lema is innocent there is no evidence or proff that indicates to anyone that he has committed anything!! He has screamed that he is innocent from day one! But yet is being mentally and physically abuse! I feel that he is definitely being mistreated by the sheriff’s & CO’s at the Santa Clara main jail!! They have know rights to treat humans like animals and place them in isolation for weeks at a time!! We treat our animals better than that!! Christopher is a respectful and good hearted brother, son, uncle, friend. Who has never had any prior record of any violence! I will not sit back & watch my 19 year old brothers life waste away! This needs to stop today!! He is innocent & I will make sure his VOICE IS HEARD!! And JUSTICE is served everyday and night in tell he is back at home with his family where he deserves to be!!! Please keep Chris in your prayers. And pray for his release! Please don’t pass judgement it could easily be one of your loved ones that is being wrongfully accused!!
