Today's Blind Items - The Hit

I have written and spoken about this case before. What I never knew until Sunday night though is that this permanent A list mostly movie actor who really got a career boost a couple of years back with a new franchise, reached out to police about this case. He wasn't home when it happened, but came back home a few days after. Because his house has a lot of video cameras and was in the right place at the right time, he had video which would be really useful. The cameras were focused more on the front yard and door, so you can't see the actual crime in progress but you could see the shape of a person coming and then fleeing afterwards. He called the police and told them, but they didn't seem interested. He had his agent call for him too, and still the police weren't interested. When he downloaded the footage and emailed it to them, he never heard back. He thinks it shows the killer because of the time stamp and to this day is frustrated because he can't find out if anyone ever saw it.

Top notch police work, expect nothing less/more.

The Robert Blake/Bonnie Lee Blake murder case in Studio City?

Tricia13 said...

Bruce Willis for the actor (pick a franchise lol)

Unknown said...

Kurt Russell (neighbor)/ OJ?

sandybrook said...

It's not Bonnie Blake she was killed outside a restaurant.

Dena said...

I was thinking of the Barry & Honey Sherman murders in Toronto but can't find any famous neighbours.

You're making this assumption based on a blind item that probably isn't true? LOL.

I doubt this is the OJ case. Video cameras were still analog back then so you couldn't download the footage. This is a case that happened post Web 2.0 (2004ish) when security companies started offering remote access to footage. Before that, even rich people didn't have enough bandwidth.

Chasen "accident"

herbert arnold said...

so if this person isnt getting any satisfaction trying to talk to the police then bring your video to the district attorney.

Tierney said...

The murder of Ronnie Chasen - happened on Sunset. Dunno who lived near there, though.

Do Tell said...

Stallone? Expendables?

Tiff said...

Ronnie Chasen case investigation was a joke. No way it happened as the BH police said. Absolutely no way.

Dena said...

I think Tom Cruise lives near the site of the Ronni Chasen murder, but I don't think he had a career resurgence or new franchise recently.

MDAnderson said...

If it’s Chasen then i think it’s Keanu Reeves.

BayAreaGirl said...

Keanu & John Wick as the franchise fits!

It’s all right here... but doesn’t say who it is...


“Meanwhile, several residents of Whittier Dr. in Beverly Hills, where Chasen crashed after being shot seconds earlier at the nearby corner of Sunset Blvd., reached out to police, yet the released documents indicate that a thorough, proactive check of other immediate neighbors didn’t take place. And only token surveillance footage was pulled from a handful of business and residential security cameras, none of which showed Smith in the area.”

Not so sure about this one. If it's an A list movie actor who is frustrated about the lack of attention/response to the video clip, why doesn't he/she release the footage? Post it to social media or a web site and then use the celebrity/name recognition he/she has to draw attention to it. If it's video relevant to a high-profile unsolved case, that might help get it back on the radar.

mamamoleok said...

There's was an article in the Hollywood Reporter - couple of years ago on the Chasen case, talking about how strange it was to not have any security footage and that there had to be some out here. Can't think of who's had a resurgence in a franchise lately.

LooksLikeCRicci said...

Keanu/John Wick and Ronni Chasen all seem to fit...

s.s. said...

So who wanted her dead and why ?

Guesser said...

The Ronnie Chasen case was definitely a coverup, but I don't know who lived near there. I guess the best thing would be to make it public through a third party. May be dangerous for the actor.

AtlantAnne said...

Somebody wanted her dead.... blind headline says it was a hit.. she was a very powerful publicist & likely could make or break a movie or career... s.s.

@Florence, Pretty sure by now that the general population is aware of the sh!tshows that murder investigations can turn into. Sometimes they get it right, sometimes not. You've perhaps heard of some documentaries, tv shows, movies, books, articles, etc to that effect?

I've had friends in various related professions and they always back that up. Personally speaking once I lived near a murder in a very low crime area and the police didn't even bother to canvass the neighborhood. Six months later they started asking the public for info about that day, but nobody could remember details that far back. End result, unsolved murder. No motive, no theft, somebody just broke into a stranger's home and murdered them. Could have been my home instead and my family putting up flowered wreaths every year.

Troy Dyer said...

RDJ for actor in a franchise?

Spider Rico said...

In the 70's in NYC a prostitute I knew was murdered in my building.She as a prostitute but a sweetheart. Nice to all of us kids. Her throat was slit and she was also gutted in half with bullets packed inside a condom which were stuffed inside her vagina. She knew alot. Too much about the wrong people. Police stuffed it. Murder still unsolved.

Breaking News: police departments are corrupt

Alf Landon said...

OJ was made for TV theater, Staged A Hoax

Vita said...

Spider Rico-- Good God, all murder is horrific, but that definitely sounds particularly vicious and vengeful

I read that Hollywood Reporter article. This blind seems like a good match. The police wrote it off as a robbery, yet her purse was lying open on the front seat, seemingly untouched. Also, lots of annoyed,dodgy answers from police at time, that give impression they didn't want to do better job (threatened? Knew truth and not something they could pursue?), not just incompetent.

Don't know addresses for the celebs

Pretty sure a lot of blind items are made up, especially ones on this site

Shaddup Mimsey said...

Wasn't it the $ci bots that killed Chasen?

AbbyRock said...

If the locals won't do anything, send it to the state police or hell, make a copy and send it to The Enquirer. They'd publish it frame by frame.

hunter said...

oh Florence nobody is here for your sniveling

OJ for sure

HkyMom said...

+1 @hunter... ewww Florence

Guesser said...

Quotation marks, unnecessary copy/paste comment, wide space in comment, obvious comment. Been away awhile.

Mango said...

Waiting for Florence to make an appearance on a Meghan Markle/Prince Harry blind. “I post here allll the time!”


TerribullTres said...

Surely there are are other things for you to read. Bye bye

RobertaJoan said...

Duh.

Thy Unveiling said...

I wondered this as well.

Sagan said...

I don't think Keanu Reeves' security cameras can see all the way to the Sunset end of Whittier from The Bird Streets where he lives (Thrasher Ave), 3 miles away.

BRAD PITT said...


career boost = Kurt Russell

new franchise = Fast Furious

Jennacheryl said...

I was thinking Ronnie Chasen too

Carolyn said...

Keanu (John Wick) and Ronni Chasen, for sure. Enty has noted Keanu's house's proximity to the murder scene before: https://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2010/12/ronni-chasen-bad-photos-and-trip-down.html
