Ronnie Chasen's Murder Case Officially Closed

Even months later, this still seems like such an unnecessary and tragic crime.

El Lay authorities have officially shut down their investigation of murdered publicist Ronni Chasen, and after going through over 150,000 pieces of evidence, have determined that she lost her life when the gunman, Harold Martin Smith, attempted to rob her in her car.

Despite rumors that she had been the target of a professional hit, new details suggest that the gun used in the murder had been stolen from a police officer during a previous robbery in the valley.

Regardless of what actually went down, we can't imagine this is easy for her family and loved ones to accept, and our thoughts are with them as they try to cope with this devastating loss.

LAPD Closing Ronni Chasen Murder Case

Filed under: Sad Sad

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?
