May 22 - A word from the Mayor on RHE Homicide Investigation
The City has received notice that the District Attorney’s office has chosen not to file charges at this time pending the processing of additional evidence in the Susan Leeds homicide investigation. As a result, the suspect has been released. Effective justice depends on a thorough investigation. I urge patience, and I have confidence in the ongoing investigative process being undertaken by the DA and Sheriff. Meanwhile, the Sheriff’s Department continues to emphasize that there is no ongoing threat to the Palos Verdes Peninsula community connected to this case.
We are asking anyone who was at the Promenade Shopping Center in Rolling Hills Estates on May 3, 2018 between 9:30am and 12:30pm to contact LASD Homicide Detective Quintero or Detective Austin at 323-890-5500.
