Blind Item #1 - Political Murder

You think political surprises can be big, then you have seen nothing yet. In one of the bigger races in the country that has a primary just before summer, there is a candidate running who committed murder to save his political future. The anniversary of that murder just occurred. One of his opponents knows the secret and is going to reveal it about 30 days before the primary.

this ties in to to the henley blind, most likely.

Why are they waiting for the primary FFS?

THEY KILLED SETH RICH! (haha jk. ok... half-kidding)

just sayin' said...

for maximum leverage against him. people will be riled up and suspicious, won't have had enough time to think it through.

roxy said...

Oh, good call, @Just Sayin!

CeeSaw said...

JrSlims is right.

CeeSaw said...

but that's not the answer to this blind. Henry related indeed, but still searching.

roxy said...

I'm trying to remember about that blind.

Now, the 16 year old that was hospitalized was found dead a year later, right? But that was the only murder involved in that blind, wasn't it?

Jerry Brown was the politician guessed?

Is up for reelection and the primary is June 5th, 2018.

Do Tell said...

I haven't been able to listen to any Henley or Eagles songs since I read that blind. And that was some of my absolute favorite music.

I can''t get interested or excited that Azoff announced an Eagles tour for next year either. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop, but I feel like warning people not to buy tickets for a tour that might combust before it even starts.

just sayin' said...

jerry brown can't run again. seth rich died in july, so the anniversary isn't coming up. but we should try to find someone who died in november or december.

the 16-yr-old in the henley case was found dead a year after the event, which was in november, so that fits. that would mean that the husband of the 15-yr-old knows who killed her, that killer is also running for office, and he's going to expose him in the spring, per the earlier blind.

Alexandria Anna said...

It's connected to previous blind? Damn, I'll start to make evidence boards, probably would be easier to keep track..

Do Tell said...

The 16 year old's death was said to have been an overdose. It wasn't a for sure murder but the possibility wasn't off the table either.

just sayin' said...

here's the earlier blind:

Blind Item #1 - He Made Millions From Raping Young Girls - Himmmm

just sayin' said...

i think it's a stretch that someone running for office now is the murderer of the 16-yr-old, but anything seems possible these day.

OT-I have been reading this blog since '07 but stopped when the new format happened. Anyone know why this site came back to the original and is better than ever!

just sayin' said...

it came back for all the reasons you left, blue bell. and just in time for all the big stories coming out.

Crazycatlady said...

I do wayy too much research into us politics... I thought there was maybe a hint at a state too in one of the other blinds?

Glue said...

just sayin' - I agree "anything seems possible these days." Like I said in another post/comment, nothing surprises me or phases me anymore.

I also believe this could be any one of the politicians out there. It's becoming more and more evident that people (especially those w/ any type of power) are inherently evil and every now and then some good squeaks out.

Cail Corishev said...

I don't know if it fits the Henley case, except for the time of year. The hint there was that the politician husband of the victim was a Republican, but Henley's friend and supporter (Brown) is a Democrat. It would still make sense to expose him, but there'd be no advantage for a Republican in doing it right before the primary. Also, does "committed murder" mean he did it himself, or could that include hiring it done? Maybe the party affiliation was disinfo.

So many possibilities. All the Congressmen running next year, plus 1/3 of the Senators, plus how ever many governors, and I wouldn't put it past most of them. But how many of those hundreds of campaigns would Enty consider "one of the bigger races in the country"?

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Could the murder Enty is talking about be that if Ronni Chasen? He said the anniversary just occurred. RC was killed 11/16. The night of the Henley incident was 11/21.

Krab said...

After the Geffen story the other day--about killing the journalist--I couldn't stop thinking about Michael Corleone telling Kay she was naive for thinking senators didn't have people killed.

Krab said...

Chasen is a good guess.

And it's a good idea to wait till the primary. People have very short memories and politicans are good at excuses.

just sayin' said...

i agree glue and crazycatlady that this doesn't have to the ca primaries. we didn't get any clue that the 15-yr-old knew who killed her friend (she'd moved to northern california by then, presumably). i'd think that himmmm or enty would have alluded to that. lots of elections coming up.

Ulf said...

ALL OF THEM....!

Ulf said...

BTW what happened to that politician who had a nanny 20 years old or something that went missing presumed being dead? don't know if they ever found the body.

Arshes said...

He can't run for re-election it's two terms max for California governor.

Don Kieballs said...

Who would be a possible opponent that would run against Bob Iger sometime between now and 2020? And, how Iger would link back to the death of the girl involved with the Henley story. I know he's been at political fundraisers with people involved, like with Geffen at Rahm's fundraiser, but that doesn't mean he was involved back then.

roxy said...

Thanks for steering me away from Jerry Brown, y'all.

Reading up on Ronni, now.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

I’m pretty sure this isn’t related to the Henley blind unless Enty mistyped. The anniversary for the Henley blind hasn’t occurred yet. In the blind, it’s stated that the anniversary just occurred.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Not saying it’s him but Antonio Villaraigosa is running for Governor and he was Mayor of LA in 2010. He also had just finished up an ethics investigation where he was accepting thousands of dollars worth of tickets to high profile events such as the Oscars.

hopscotch101girl said...

The Ronni Chasen story looks very interesting inn regard to this blind item.

Sd Auntie said...

Yes!!! Good guess!! Total organized crime hit! Wow!

Freestar said...

Hmm JFK Jr's anniversary just past, so did his dad's.

just sayin' said...

so many great guesses, which rabbit hole to go down first?! this looks like the makings of a fun saturday night at my house, lol.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Actually, JFK was killed 11/22 and JFK, Jr died 11/25

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Enty - can you provide any more clues?

just sayin' said...


cail corishev: even tho it's a primary, exposing this would prevent him from winning the nomination. if he'd have been your strongest competition come election day, get him out and besmirch the opposition party ahead of time.

My.answer.is.xyz: great guess! ronni chasen is one of the most intriguing unsolved hollywood deaths. the anniversary could fit the henley story as the girl died "a year later". i don't think that has to be a year to the exact day.

krab: i love a godfather reference! and so true.

ulf: that's very intriguing, have you remembered anything more about it?



Eyre Affair said...


Hopscotch, that’s a very interesting THR article. Especially this passage:

“Indeed, Katzenbach shares an elaborate chart he's established of tantalizing if murky connections between Smith and Chasen that THR can't publish without drawing a defamation-by-implication claim. It's a circumstantial constellation of film ties, troubled relationships, criminal records and money issues. All of it centers on one person long known to the publicist who several of her best friends (some never interviewed by the police) suggested in interviews with THR could have played a key role in a hit.”


just sayin' said...

googling "most important primaries 2018" there's an article on crooksandliars.com about the key democratic primaries. here are their top 4:

• FL-23, Tim Canova taking on Debbie Wassermann Schultz
• TX-29, Hector Morales taking on Gene Green
• IL-03, Marie Newman taking on Dan Lipinski
• NY-14, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez taking on Joe Crowley

debbie wasserman schultz's name jumps out after all the dirty tricks that went on in the democratic party machine last year.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

about when did this happen? ballpark

just sayin' said...

the opponent of the murderer could be a woman. the murderer is male, but there's no pronoun for the opponent. i think the opponent may be our 15-year-old herself.

just sayin' said...

no idea what year it happened, only that it happened in november or december.

pegd said...

This could be Gavin Newsmen (D-CA) running for Gov. He was shady when he was Mayor of SF. Talk he has Presidential aspirations, so would be really big news.

Guesser said...

This probably is the Ronni Chasen. There was a big coverup, they would not release the autopsy report until three years later, tried to pass it off as a botched robbery even though evidence showed a paid hit. The like!y killer supposedly killed himself,but no one know who hired him.

Guesser said...

@myanswerisxyz, the Ronni Chasen Murder was 2010, Henley1980. Maybe the LA Mayor is involved with the Chasen case? I wasn't sure if this was what you meant. Both November, I don't think they are connected.

just sayin' said...

breaking it down:

the candidate running "committed murder to save his political future". this means that he was in politics at the time, with dreams of more to come. he wanted to save his reputation. the murdered person had information against him or his close associates.

this means, if we use the henley case as an analogy, that he wasn't a dirty cop or security detail or mobster. though any of those could have become politicians later, the motive for the murder, at the time of, wouldn't have been "to save their political future".

committing murder doesn't have to mean it was done with his own hands, he could have hired it out. the actual killer may be where the evidence is coming from.

enty puts red herrings into these big blinds to keep from being sued. so could the politician then and now actually be retiring, but his endorsement badly needed for the coming election?

Rachewbacca said...

FINALLY, say a warm goodbye to Jerry Brown, what a piece of absolute crap. King Idiot of the Idiot State is goin' down, down, down!

Itttt said...

Can’t be Jerry, he’s termed out (finally!)...at least I think he is. Fucking lunatic should’ve been aborted.

Itttt said...

Ooooh, I like the Mayor McPuto-raigosa guess! He’s literally the most pathetic little rat fuck rodent and was a cholo gang banger in his youth.

Boo Hearne said...

Killed someone. Is Gary Condit running again? Remember Shandra Levy?

Himmmm said...

GREAT guess "xyz". Wow, you're very sharp.
I'd have to second those guesses too.

Because Enty said the date had already passed.
I know it's NOT the one many have guessed, so that points back CLEARLY to the Ronni Chasen disaster.

And whomever said that about Antonio Villagrosiaofirutyghjfn (cannot spell it sorry). That's a great tie in too. He WAS being investigated by an ethics committee the same time she was killed.

DEADLINE website first reported it was a hit.
The LA Times reported it was a hit.
They all said the "patsy" "fall guy" was promised $10,000 (he bragged to pals about) then he rapidly kills himself just when being questioned by police.
He was set up methinks.
The tipster who called in to rat out the homeless patsy guy? The tipster fingered him, oddly enough, before the police even released info on the suspect!!
And that tipster didnt call 911 or the cops.
He called Americas Most Wanted! So maybe he was paid to do that so it wouldn't come back on the BevHills PD.

Even the actual AUTOPSY and Coroner report said eyewitnesses report a car pulling up and shooting into Chasen's car.

The video from the cameras at Sunset and Whittier has never been released. The cops still have it all under seal.

BUT THEN...all those reports became glossed over. Total whitewash of events and statements, with zero explanation.

Then - magically - the BevHills PD changed the entire narrative.
They said the pistol of the homeless patsy matched Chasen's bullets. But failed to say it was less than 20% possible match (no prosecutor would take THAT to court). And the final ballistics report remains under seal. Even FBI lab would not confirm a 20% match!

So ask yourself..."que bono"...who benefits from her death?
Who had most to lose if she shared something?
That then-Mayor of LA.
Then ask yourself WHO could get the BHPD to muddy the investigation?
To get BHPD to call "case closed" before its solved?
WHO went to "interview" the homeless patsy?
The BHPD.

And the whole time? They never asked LAPD or Feds or anyone else for assist in a high-profile murder case. And that means it keeps speculation away from LA Mayor since neither LA County or LAPD were part of it - so you cannot blame him for the fucked up investigation. The BevHills Police Chief is the one who muddied the case.
So who could order the BHPD to do this?
The same powerful, rich LA Mayor.

You Sherlocks should look at who was Chief of BHPD at that time. How did HE get run out of office? And most of all -WHERE did he go after he left office? Did he (gee maybe) get a cushy job at some firm run by people with ties to that same Mayor?
LOOK INTO THAT and AT THE BACKGROUNDS OF THE PRINCIPALS OF THAT FIRM WHERE THE CHIEF WENT. ANY OF THEM HAVE TIES TO LA MAYOR OR COUNCIL??

So my guess for this blind - the Ronni Chasen hit and Mayor Antonio Villalobosventimigliaburritosupremeenchilada.
Is he running for a big job in 2018?

Of course, I'm just guessing in the dark here. But apparently, according to the blind, somebody knows something.
WITH PROOF.
I wonder who the ex-Mayor's big opponents are? And I also wonder who the Mayor's big supporters are?
And what THEY may have to gain by having Antonio in a big power position? Methinks this is bigger than a Cali political race.
Might even include things going on in LA & NY & FL for decades.

david snowden for bhpd chief in 2010

just sayin' said...

villaraigosa was mayor at the time

just sayin' said...

gavin newsome's the hottest contender for the democratic nomination, no?

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Was just pointing out that the LA Mayor at the time is now running for governor. Cases are unrelated - agree

Rachewbacca said...

Gads, love you Himmmm, but you are somewhat verbose.

Itttt said...

Check out the firm in question, Englander Knabe & Allen, and it’s directors, principals, executives etc. BHPD chief at the time of the coverup/snowjob was indeed Dave Snowden. Looking forward to seeing the Rodent fry...you know he has connections to Eme aka the Mexican Mafia btw. And easily one of the most corrupt crooked politicians this city has seen (and that’s saying a LOT). How many times did he fail the Cali bar, I always forget if it was 5, 6, 7 Times?

just sayin' said...

snowden retired in 2015 in a conflict of interest case. he'd been taking an additional salary as a security consultant for a private firm (evidence-based inc, or ebi). the firm was under contract to the bh unified school district to provide armed guards...mostly retired bh police officers.

he worked for them from october 2012 to oct. 2015 as a "security consultant", but the ebi ceo said they wanted him to “assist in building beneficial relationships for EBI.” he quit because he didn't get permission from the city and didn't file required disclosures.

he went on to work for englander, knabe and allen. allen is marcus allen, who workd as deputy chief of staff in charge of operations and finance in the office of mayor antonio villaraigosa. he had budgetary control over virtually everything in l.a. govt.

just sayin' said...

was typing when you commented, itttt, not copying. great leads.

aanjheni said...

Security eh? Could Snowden be tied to what Geffen wants to do with his private 'security' force of 500?

just sayin' said...

crossed my mind too, aanjheni.

just sayin' said...

retired bh police are gonna be key to solving the chasen cover-up.

Guesser said...

Can't they force the release of the video? Has anyone tried?

just sayin' said...

we need to figure out what ronni chasen knew that would hurt villaraigosa.

just sayin' said...


ryan katzenbach wanted to make a documentary about her murder and as of 2014 was suing for access to the case files. katzenbach found that the bhpd had interviewed none of her close friends.he did a fundraiser with a short film here:
6:38: the death of ronni chasen

just sayin' said...

it was the same ethics commission that investigated snowden and villaraigosa: snowden quit in 2015 and villaraigosa was fined in 2011. (the california fair political practice commission).

villaraigosa's crime was receiving gifts worth more than $100 and free tickets to big awards shows between 2005 and 2010. the oscars itself was fined for giving him so many tickets to awards shows and the governor's ball. chasen was a publicist, so at the center of the award shows, and she died in 2010.

was she threatening to expose him? considering he got off with only a fine, got to keep his job, murder seems like a pretty extreme solution to villaraigosa's conflict of interest.

just sayin' said...

okay, so my final answer is.....

ronni chasen for the murdered person...november 16, 2010. (rip ronni.)

mayor of l.a. being investigated for an ethics violation: anthony villaraigosa, also running for governor of california in june, 2018

chief of the beverly hills pd at the time: david snowden, who could muddy the investigation as he was in control of the case files, local security videos, and close the case prematurely.

snowden's thank you for helping in the coverup? his fancy job at englander, knabe and allen...partnered by villaraigosa's former deputy chief of staff, marcus allen.

villaraigosa's opponents and supporters in the ca june primaries: the primaries are "non-partisan blanket primaries", meaning that candidates from both parties are on the ballot and the top 2 finishers, regardless of party, go to the november general election. so party affiliation isn't as relevant as we've been thinking.

declared or potential democrats are:
David Asem, attorney
Michael Bracamontes, attorney
John Chiang, California State Treasurer
Ted Crisell, perennial candidate
Delaine Eastin, former California State Superintendent of Public Instruction

Klement Tinaj, actor, martial artist and producer

need to do more research before theorizing, but himmmm's last comment hints it may tie in to the epstein & co. child sex ring (?!)

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Who has the power to disable traffic cameras?

just sayin' said...

from the l.a. times in 2008, regarding his re-election:

Villaraigosa has an impressive list of Hollywood supporters: Casey Wasserman (grandson of the legendary Lew Wasserman); Disney Chief Executive Robert Iger; HBO Films President Colin Callender; media mogul Haim Saban; Laker great Magic Johnson; 20th Century Fox Co-Chairman Jim Gianopulos; director-producer Jerry Zucker; syndicated television mogul Michael King; writer-TV producers Linda Bloodworth-Thomason and Harry Thomason;superagent Patrick Whitesell; DreamWorks Animation Chief Executive Jeffrey Katzenberg; William Morris head Jim Wiatt; News Corp. President Peter Chernin.

also, rob reiner. reiner was suggested here as being allegedly part of a child sex ring, which might tie him to the "things going on in LA & NY & FL for decades". but he's on himmmm's list of hollywood "good guys". so i trust that more.

just sayin' said...

exactly, xyz.

just sayin' said...

i can't find much hollywood support for villaraigosa for governor, it's all going to newsom.

Sd Auntie said...

Leave moonbeam alone!!!!not him

My.answer.is.xyz said...

You know, AV had that photo of himself with Charlie Sheen. CS went on to say they partied in his room with several women. Maybe AV had a thing for partying with the Hollywood crowd and RC had some incremenating evidence from previous parties?

OMG. Thank you!! Yup, Snowden is worshipped by cops in California. LORD HAVE MERCY!! Woo hoo

just sayin' said...

interesting about charlie sheen, xyz. i can't find anything linking him to singer or others so far. he didn't become mayor until 200l, and he worked out of sacramento from 94-2000, so probably not involved in shady hollywood stuff prior to being mayor.

Bubbles said...

Is there another JFK Jr. I don't know about? The famous one who died with his wife and sister in law on the way to Martha's Vineyard died in July of 99, so that's hardly JUST passed.

LuLu said...

imagine the dirt RC must have had on him... for him to think said dirt warranted that level of punishment? charlie on the other hand, said he partied for hours with at least 1 porn star in the room, kept up with Charlie booze-wise, AND PUBLICLY CALLED HIM A LIAR... and no punishment for the cockroach with 999 lives... (who would be an easy mark - get some random to slip him some of the bad shit- no suspicion generated with CS's rep)... Apology or no apology; the damage was done... it wasnt a retraction... hmmm

Guesser said...

@myansweris.xyz,supposedly, the police have a tape locked away at the traffic stop.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Yeah, I read that but I also read that initial reporting was that the cameras were disabled. My brain hurts. I give up. LOL dead end after dead end. I hope you guys solve this one. It’s a doozy.

Itttt said...

The only actual competition is in the primaries (and will be same as in the general election), and it’s Gavin Newsom. No one else will be relevant, guaranteed. Villaraigosa has no chance in reality in an actually fair primary or election, but with his shady connections and the rigged Cali system he would actually have a chance...IF he weren’t so already notoriously corrupt and scummy. But it will be nice to see him fry. As much as I loathe New-scum, he would be the lesser of 2 evils.

Dahling said...

Interesting take on Chasen. Something Enty retweeted about her on the anniversary of her murder made me stop & say “Hmmmm... something you’re trying to say Enty Ol’ Chap?” Nothing telling at all, just that he retweeted it.

BayAreaGirl said...

I’m late to the party, but if the politician is Antonio Villagairosa, the opponent could be someone with ties to Unions. AV used to be their fav & then they had a nasty falling out. Gavin Newsome is leading but only polling @ 26% because still a lot of undecided voters. It could be John Cox or Travis Allen, but Cox seems pretty tame & Allen looks like a cartoon. If AV doesn’t advance after primaries, Gavin’s path to victory would be MUCH easier.

auntliddy said...

Jerry Brown couldnt kill anyone, unless he talked them to death, lol

Itttt said...

Certainly, not anyone and everyone of Mexican origin (or Latino/Hispanic et al. etc.) is connected to Eme, but AV? Yeah the shoe and the stink fits in that case. TRUST this anonymous entity on that one 😉.

Traffic cameras disabled/broken? HA! Don’t make me laugh! Don’t believe it; not for a second. The recordings exist and aren’t just under seal, better believe that as well. Don’t believe it? Well, put in a FoIA for the recordings from the immediate 24 hours prior and 24 hours after, as well as the tickets issued off that 48 hours of footage from the intersection (Sunset and Whittier)...that’s public record and accessible via freedom of information act. You honestly think Beverly Hills, Culver City, WeHo and other cities milking the revenue off photo enforced traffic lights/intersections would EVER allow their cameras to be disabled/offline for more than a brief (sub 1-2 hour) period? Those are massive cash cows, and no way was the hit planned perfectly or it would have never taken place at a multi camera covered intersection recording 24/7. Those cameras don’t just take still images when the lights change despite the flash - they are video recording 24/7/365. FACT. Systems may vary from city/county/state/municipality, but Bev Hills WeHo and CC ALL record footage constantly

ForSure said...

I worked in the California State Assembly when Antonio was the Speaker. He will not be getting my vote. Not ever. It's not that I hate him, it's that I despise every breath he takes, his very existence on this earth, and anywhere in CA politics.

It was one thing to watch him on the office monitors and get the feeling that something wasn't quite right about him, it was another thing to actually be in the same room as him a few months after I started my job and have that cold chill spontaneously run down my spine, that feeling that tells you to stay alert because you are in the presence of evil. But I had to sit quietly while the whole building sucked up to him, including my boss, because he was the Speaker and if you wanted anything at all, so much as a box of paper clips for your office, you could not say a word against that arrogant punk and his custom made suits.

Despite that, the rumors and stories were rampant during his tenure. The administrative assistant who had a choice parking spot in the basement with the electeds, instead of across the street with the rest of the staffers. Unexplained staff reassignments and pay raises that didn't match job titles, which we found out about eventually because salaries are public info, released once a year. It was a relief and an absolute joy when Hertzberg took over and brought order and integrity back to the building. You could feel it in the hallways, because Hertzberg wasn't afraid of people being honest with him.

Antonio got to where he is largely because of his background. In Los Angeles politics he had a presumed voting base, but the Hispanic/Latino voting machine was split in half (I've heard it's more diverse and less loyal now) and the half that didn't support Antonio's rise probably still has a grudge against him.

Gavin Newsom has the lead right now, just on name recognition with hardly any money spent, but Antonio is probably spending money on opposition research against him, and vice versa. Apparently, they do not like each other much. The most qualified person in the race, IMO, is John Chiang, a thoughtful, intelligent, policy wonk type of guy who has spent years in the policy positions in state government, not with a glamorous title that would get him a lot of press. If we're lucky, Gavin and Antonio will go at each other, and Chiang will rise up in the fall out. Given our state's history, it would be awesome to have someone of Chinese descent as our governor.

Apologies for the Himmmm length post, I'll probably never do it again.

Itttt said...

Nothing to apologize for, ForSure, quite informative and quite welcome. Apologies for your interaction with the Rodent up north; I can confirm the same shadiness down here in LA. Particularly the feeling of evil in the Rodent’s presence, tailored (boys sized) suits and all - to the point that I regret not ending its existence, even if it would have been at the cost of my own. Should’ve taken one for the collective good and crushed/ripped its throat out even with its LAPD security hovering.

LuLu said...

ForSure and Itttt, your sharing is next level, thanks for the unedited raw goods. Rodent certainly evokes a strong gut reaction. Riveting.. Ya got me hooked on CA politics now!

Melody Clark said...

Jerry Brown saved California. Think what you like about him, he made us viable again. We're the world's sixth largest economy. Some of the states are jealous. :)

Gavin Newsome is a very, kind personable fellow. You can't be elected to high office without being a,monster, but he's one of the kinder ones. Jerry is second.

ForSure said...

I'm back in So Cal now, I haven't worked in the Capitol since 2004, when I spent a few months with a new member and realized it wasn't for me anymore. I hate term limits, it really screwed up our government, and I'm glad they've finally been able to modify it just enough that there is a little bit more stability and long term policy making for the state now. Thankfully, I'm not in the City of LA, but at least Garcetti seems to be trying to improve things as best he can. He's actually kind of surprised me.

I thought Antonio V. would be brought down by harassment charges, with women so empowered to come forward right now, but it seems the Capitol is still circling the wagons to protect their own, on both sides of the aisle. Shame, a lot of shit has happened in that building over the years, including a couple of pregnancies (female staffer, married male legislator stuff). All the relationships are kept mostly quiet, these men don't go to cocktail parties with known high priced escorts on their arms while everyone looks the other way like DC.

If you're bored and want to google some fun stuff, there was the Condit/Levy mess in DC, Roy Ashburn in Sacramento, and Chuck Calderon and his family, all elected at one time or another in CA, one convicted, but I'm suspicious of the whole family. I think there's an ex-Calderon staffer out there somewhere with a child who may or may not know it's real dad. CA isn't entirely corrupt though, I met a lot of people who genuinely wanted to serve the people of the state, not just grab power for themselves.

It's late. I'm treating this like my personal blog and rambling away. Ciao for now.

Publicist’s killer called an expert shot

Whoever killed Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen was an expert shot who was able to squeeze off multiple rounds in a tight and deadly formation, a retired investigator who saw a preliminary coroner’s report said Wednesday.

Dahling, what did Enty retweet on the anni of RC murder?

Dahling said...

@Boots... Nothing ominous or telling. It was just that he retweeted with a short comment. Not the comment itself, just THAT he commented. Something about it alerted my radar. It was very Enty-esque:

Damn! I really missed this old format. The level of commenting is incredible. I really missed ya, Himmmm. And Count. I watched JFK yesterday, so I'm reading this in Costner's Louisiana accent. I agree with y'all--this fits Ronni Chasen's murder. Off to find accounts of the function she went to that night.

just sayin' said...

i theorized above that villaraigosa may have wanted chasen shut up because the ethics investigation was starting. he'd accepted, without reporting, tickets to over 85 events like the acadamy awards and the governor's ball. even the academy had to pay fines for their involvement.

ronni chasen as a publicist was at the heart of all of those events. my first thought was that she was going to be a whistleblower. but maybe she was part of the "scandal", facilitating the distribution of tickets to others as well, names villaraigosa didn't want to be associated with. (tie-ins to nyc, dc, florida?)

either way, this wasn't a career-ending scandal -- av just paid a penalty -- but maybe he thought it was going to destroy him. and maybe if there were other aspects to the scandal, it would have.

The gun was also believed to be a “stolen” police issue .38. Her home was burglarized on 12/03.

Also read somewhere that LAPD Chief Beck defended how BHPD was handling the case.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Oh...and read that she had told friends that she was afraid due to the feeling that she was being followed since I believe March of 2010.

happy to see you changed your mind about giving up, xyz! we'd be lost without you on this one!

My.answer.is.xyz said...

Thx!

Guesser said...

Itttt,an expert shot is not likely to be a suicidal homeless person. Let us not forget,there is a real person who was intentionally killed,and she should get justice.

Itttt said...

Exactly - it was a professional hit. In a particular municipality/jurisdiction.

Buddy Bones Smith said...

Actually, JFK Jr. died in July of 1999. I was in an accident, and while I was waiting for the police, I remember listening to the reports on the radio. Not even satellite radio then!

Scandi Sanskrit said...

For maximum impact? Trying to benefit from smearing their political opponents? IMHO, Enty should reveal it before anyone has the chance to capitalise on someone's death. It's not as bad as murder itself but it's still dirty.

Scandi Sanskrit said...

There is no benefit to it. It'll just look like a smear campaign that capitalised on a murder of a minor and they'd end up looking bad, IMHO...

Jane said...

Can't stomach Villa-Raigosa. He can barely speak intelligibly without using a teleprompter. He did little positive for Los Angeles. He can't keep a "real" job due to his stupidity. No one I know would vote for him. (Hispanic family). I love having Himmmm back and read everything he writes. I'm seeing some people putting down our gorgeous CA. Don't be hating, we are doing great here. One of the top economies on the planet. Diverse, interesting, beautiful, not a flyover state, but a destination for world travelers. So bite me, ya bitter Bitches!

just sayin' said...

this looks like a family murder, prompted by anger over her will and possibly old griefs over her mother's estate as well. ronni's estate was worth $6.1 million and she left much of it left to charity. she left no money to her brother, the film writer and producer larry cohen, who was her executor. she left a great deal to one of larry's daughters but only $10 to his other daughter, jill gatsby. jill stated that that was due to an old family feud about jill's writing career. it was rumored that ronni had been talking about changing her will in the weeks prior to her death. it's believed that a new one existed, but it hasn't turned up. the will they had to go on was from 1994.

cohen has had quite a few successes, such as writing the colin farrell movie "phone booth", and has consistently put out work every year or so since the early '60's. interestingly, his last movie was released in 2010. he has a movie in pre-production for 2018 release, but his only other imdb credits are as himself in documentaries.

a few years prior to her death, her home in west hollywood was broken into. only personal items of lower monetary value, described as "family heirlooms", were taken.

she was shot in the chest. police stated that this was odd, as normally hits in cars aim at the head for quick death, maximum impact. they surmised that whoever wanted her dead may have wanted to protect her face, as in someone who cared about her. her coroner's report stated that she was killed by an expert marksman, a likely "hit".

larry cohen and ronni chasen were not close until their mother's funeral. cohen was reported to be very unemotional and cold at that funeral. something that many found odd was cohen's adamant insistence that her murder must have been a case of road rage.

just sayin' said...

that being said, i hope no one in my family ever dies under mysterious circumstances because we've got plenty of old beefs that would look shady, too. the family angle is probably just one of the side stories that confused the investigation, along with the russian art dealer theory and the woman who claimed a man with "a shirt tied to his head" had waved a gun and smiled at her in the same neighborhood a week earlier (the shirt made me think of doorags...who mentioned a connection between villaraigosa and ms-13?) anyway i can't wait for the california primaries!

Scallywag said...

John-John did die in July 1999. He was born on Nov 25. Just a bit of confusion above, and appears to be not a issue here.

My.answer.is.xyz said...

You are correct. He was born 11/25

LuLu said...

still cant get this out of my head... wonder who the ONE person she knew for so long that could have played a key role in the hit...

Katzenbach shares an elaborate chart he's established of tantalizing if murky connections between Smith and Chasen that THR can't publish without drawing a defamation-by-implication claim. It's a circumstantial constellation of film ties, troubled relationships, criminal records and money issues. All of it centers on one person long known to the publicist who several of her best friends (some never interviewed by the police) suggested in interviews with THR could have played a key role in a hit.

Aimless Spectator said...

Theories that say Chasen was murdered because of some palm greasing involving Villaraigousa are profoundly rash. There would be plenty of witnesses involved who could give equally good evidence of the matter. Her one death wouldn't change anything.

That is was a "hit" doesn't even make good nonsense. A hit by the keystone cops? That's what this reads like. Wrong place to try it on many grounds: ease of escaping the threat by tromping on the gas and going like hell for one, open public space with potential witnesses, and the angle of gunfire indicates it wasn't even an attempt to kill anyway - which would best be done from the driver side, not the passenger side. The shooter was inept and only bad luck and volume of fire resulted in the fatality, not ability to fire a hand gun properly for the purpose of killing someone. Guesses persisting as false but often repeated "fact" and conspiracy theory nonsense keep alive any idea this was a planned "hit".

Actually the BHPD summation of the case is very reasonable and probably correct, though it may fall short of certainty beyond a reasonable doubt. It was a botched robbery. You can't always have pristine perfect forensic evidence in every case, and flaws in bullet matching occur in many cases because of the condition of the bullets.

M Ag said...

Her murder always struck me as a hit, but what would she have known that no one else did? Or was she the example to keep everyone else quiet?

Amelia Zedlar said...

What an amazing thread! Just have to chime in and say, himmmmm is right, Rob Reiner is one of the good guys. I worked for him for years, and although I don't always agree with his opinions, he is a real stand-up person and a devoted husband/dad. No way he would get up to anything remotely shady.

BlissBoo said...

Why has no one taken ALL of this information to all the heavy hitting reporters???

There has to be some reporters willing to even risk their lives to have a crack at a scandal this large?

We're not even reporters and look at how much information has been distributed that could hold some weight!

Lora said...

I was thinking this referred to Lori Klausitus who was found dead in Joe Scarborough's office in Florida when he was a Congressman....rumors have swirled for years she was murdered possibly by Scarborough or his very close friend Rob Riley son of the former governor of Alabama who left many a suspicious dead body in his wake.

The anniversary of Klausitus' death was just in July....and Riley is still in Alabama which has a big Congressional primary on June 5 2018 right before the start of summer...which fits with the timing in the blind.

Would not be surprising at all if one of Alabama House candidates was connected to Riley/Scarborough and murdered Klausitus.

The Rileys have long been suspected of committing murder for political gain.

DING! DING! DING! We have a winner!

Antonio Villaraigosa.

Zeroh Tollrants said...

@Himmm That was perfect.
Everything, right down the line, all of the cover ups, (local, state and federal, remember kids, the FBI has been dirty, dirty for a LONG time), and media black out, included.
I'm not shocked by a whole lot, but even I was shocked at how they handled the Roni Chasen hit job.
That was bananas.

Zeroh Tollrants said...

He's so ideologically driven he's worse than a horse w/blinders on. It makes him sound like a complete idiot, because he cannot open his mind and get off of a left/right paradigm.
Politics doesn't work on a left/right paradigm at the top levels. It is a "in club" and an "out club."
Party affiliations don't end up meaning jack to the elite.
Why do you think that Justice Scalia & Justice Ginsberg were such BFFs??
Bill Clinton and George W Bush referring to themselves as "brothers from a different mother?"
John McCain supporting Adam Schiff?
And so on, and so forth.
They leave the petty squabbling to the little people. They run the world.
