May 7 - A Message from the City Manager RE: RHE Homicide Investigation
A Message from the City Manager
The murder committed in our community last week has shaken the entire Peninsula and our residents. The Rolling Hills Estates City Council and Staff first offer their deepest sympathy to the family as they cope with their sudden and senseless loss.
We are universally outraged by this heinous crime and we all share a deep concern for the safety of the community.
City Staff continues to work directly with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department to track developments related to this crime. As an active investigation, there is a limit to that which can be shared at any particular moment. The desire on the part of the public for the latest information is understandable, and we are sharing what is appropriate at the earliest opportunity.
There is nothing that suggests an ongoing threat to the community related to this crime. Sheriff Jim McDonnell has personally assured me that this case has the highest priority and his Department is working diligently in pursuit of a resolution to the case.We hope that justice will be served soon.
