Beverly Hills, CA—My analysis of the scant publicized facts connected to the November 16th murder of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen has proven to be correct. I said this was no random killing and that Ms. Chasen had pissed off someone in a big way. I properly predicted police would quickly zero in on the offender and clear this case.
Tonight the Associated Press published the story that the yet to be identified suspect shot himself dead as police were closing in on him to serve a search warrant. I call him a suspect rather than that nebulous. “Person of Interest” term because of the existence of the search warrant.
In order to obtain a search warrant police need to establish Probable Cause under oath that a crime was committed and provide the judge with, the who, what and where facts of the case. There is a very thin line between obtaining a search warrant and making an arrest.
Now we know the police have at least one gun in their possession to rule in or out of the Chasen murder. That search warrant affidavit information submitted by the Beverly Hills homicide detective will tell us about the motive along with the rest of the story.
The motive for the killing will be unfolding along with the name of the dead suspect. I won't rule out additional suspect/s in this case.
I got several responses some of which I deleted strongly criticizing my rejection of the random shooter theory. Somehow I felt that was the suspect trying desperately to promote that phony idea.
What we know right now is the dead suspect was confronted by police in low rent Harvey Apartments on Santa Monica Blvd. in Hollywood. More information below the picture:
Thursday morning UPDATE:
Neighbors at the Harvey Apartments have shared gossip about the dead suspect with local media.
They described the African-American suspect they knew as Harold as somewhat of a braggart and self-described ex-convict. He reportedly told be people he was expecting $10,000.00 and also bragged that he killed Ronnie Chasen.
Was Harold merely a braggart that wanted to seem important who brought police attention on to himself? The reward money did not go unnoticed in Hollywood’s underbelly.
There are a lot more questions than answers right now.
