This story just gets more twisted.
The man linked to publicist Ronni Chasen's murder may have been a drug dealer, says some of his neighbors.
Harold Smith, who committed suicide in front of investigators at the Harvey Apartments in Los Angeles, was said to have "kept to himself" and was "involved in dubious behavior."
A neighbor who lived in the same apartment building, described Smith:
"Harold probably got caught up in something or someone snitched on him. He come by my apartment and we be smoking weed together. He sold drugs too. He was a cool cat and kept to himself and really didn't say much."
Despite reports that Smith was getting evicted, the neighbor says otherwise, continuing:
"Naw man, he wasn't gettin' evicted. That fool sold drugs and had some other sh-t going on too. He had money or was getting money. Think about it homie, what weed dealer you know gone stay strapped with a gun. He was definitely into some other sh-t and that's all I’m gonna say."
Other residents of the building, including Sammy Zamorano, who runs a business out of the building, says that he thought there was something strange about Smith. He told sources that he thought he need cash and he needed it fast. He added:
"This Harold guy was kind of a nut. I heard he had a gun in his apartment and needed money and would always be talking about robbing somebody. Do I think he killed that publicist woman? Who knows. But I do know he needed money and wanted to rob someone. That's a fact! No one would just up and shoot them self when the cops are trying to ask you questions. He probably had a guilty conscience."
Let's just hope police can find more clues that will give us more information about her unfortunate death.
