LAPD Closing Ronni Chasen Murder Case

lapd closing ronni chasen murder case

Looks like they can finally close the book on this one.

The LAPD are closing Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen's murder case, now that the final ballistics reports have come in and CONFIRMED that the gun used in Chasen's murder was the same gun that suspect Harold Martin Smith used to kill himself.

According to Beverly Hills police chief David Snowden, the investigation will be formally closed next week.

At this point, investigators believe that Smith was the murderer, and chief Snowden says they have "no additional evidence to review in the case."

Guess this one has been solved…it'd be pretty difficult to argue with the results from those ballistics reports.

Any more thoughts on this case as it comes to a close?

    Wow! A story where no one gay was the victim or a Republican was to be chastised?

    I'm shocked!



  2. 2

    It's saddening that the person who committed the horrendous crime of taking another human's life was too much of a coward to face the consequences of his actions. Justice isn't served to this poor woman or her loved ones. Shame on him.

    YEA, BUT WHO HIRED HIM?? OBVIOUSLY IT'S SOMEONE WHO BOUGHT OFF THE KEYSTONE COPS!!



  4. 4

    yeah, i agree. who hired him? case isn't solved at all imo



  5. 5

    Is that Steven Tyler?



  6. 6

    Solved? No. Rather, cops have closed the case. How does it really make sense that a man on a bicycle is able to shoot her multiple times in a "robbery gone wrong", but leaves her purse on the front seat, and then just bikes away? The gun that killed her was the same one used in his suicide? Ok. But when did they prove that HE was the one who actually used the gun to kill her! They have only proven that he used the same gun used to kill Ronni himself!

    That's great… so who hired him?



  8. 8

    hmmm…something seems off about this whole case.



  9. 9

    WHO HIRED THE GUY? Somebody hired the guy to kill Ronni Chasen. I would like to know the real reason this case is being closed up. This does not make sense.

    Sounds more like a cover up.
    Who hired the guy or how did he get the gun?
    The whole idea of him killing her on a bike is crazy.What was the motive? She was not robbed.
    Police originally said it was a professional hit. Why the change to a guy on a bike?
    The whole thing sounds fishy.
    Why close a case with so many unanswered questions?
    The guy had the gun but did he really kill her on a bike?
    He probably knew the real killer or found the gun. Then killed himself because he thought he would go to jail for having the real murderers gun.
    Too many unanswered questions!
    If it were my relative or loved one I would not be satisfied.
