Beverly Hill, CA—When Hollywood publicist, Ronni Chasen was gunned down in her car last month police had a mystery on their hands. The sad truth is that these days with all our technology and tools there is not more that a 35% chance that this or any other murder will be solved.
To get to the bottom of this investigation we have to speculate whether this was, or was not a random crime.
There is at least one woman e-mailing and making comments on my site suggesting that there was a similar random gun assault where she was the victim. There is no such reported attack and I refuse to buy into this diversion.
Crimes like the Chasen murder are almost never random. There is a motive that led to this killing. Greed, jealousy, revenge, hatred are common in every murder since Cain killed Able.
This is no carjacking since Chasen was safely locked in her car. No carjacker wants to take a car with a shot out passenger window and a dead or gravely wounded driver strapped in a seatbelt behind the wheel. Carjackings always happen at the driver’s door that is usually already open.
The suggestion of road rage is also baloney since those events usually happen in areas where traffic is heavy and drivers are frustrated. Gang warfare is also attributed as road rage events when in fact those were premeditated attacks.
Frankly even very disturbed people drive on our streets and never use their car or any other weapon to kill and maim people except in very rare circumstances.
So far only a 1994 Will has surfaced and the suggestion of a more recent will is very unlikely. Unlikely, simply because people of means use probate lawyers to draft such instruments and they have their staff sign as witnesses. Somebody with knowledge of such a document would have stepped forward. The cops would have been making contacts with every lawyer Chasen ever used looking for any information that would indicate a conflicts, insurance policies or wills from day one.
If they have not found an updated will or witness to one actually being made by now, there is no new will.
I am back to looking at all of Chasen’s relationships with enemies, friends, acquaintances and relatives. Perhaps the killer is a boyfriend of somebody who wanted Chasen dead.
Somewhere inside the circle of those close to Chasen is the answer. This was not a random crime.
I also think by now the Beverly Hills police homicide detectives have zeroed in on a potential suspect and are gathering the evidence they need to make their case.
I remain convinced this murder will be solved.
