Person Of Interest In Ronni Chasen Murder, Kills Himself During Police Questioning…
The suicide of a “person of interest” in the shooting death of celebrity publicist Ronni Chasen will not end the investigation, Beverly Hills Police Lt. Tony Lee said Wednesday evening.
The man, described by a coroner’s spokesman as a male in his early 40s, pulled a handgun and shot himself as Beverly Hills detectives tried to question him in the lobby of a low-rent Hollywood apartment building, Los Angeles Police Capt. Kevin McClure said.
Investigators did not reveal what role they believe this man played in Chasen’s killing last month, but there were indications they suspect others were involved.
The coroner’s office said early Thursday the man’s identity would not be released for several hours, because authorities were working to notify his relatives.
