    Ok, I know...its from Perez......


    Earlier in the week, we heard that the gun belonging to Harold Smith, a suspect who committed suicide, did not match the gun wounds found on Ronni Chasen's body.

    Now, according to ballistics tests on Smith's weapons, it appears that there IS a match to the bullets recovered from Chasen's body.

    It's looking like Harold Smith may be the murderer, but nothing has been confirmed at this time.

    What do U think about this new information?

    Publicist Ronni Chasen's Murderer Acted Alone, Police Say

    The murder case that captivated Hollywood is nearly closed.

    Publicist Ronni Chasen was gunned down during an attempted robbery by a desperate man, Harold Martin Smith, who was riding a bicycle at the time and later took his own life with the same weapon, Beverly Hills police said Wednesday.

    "We don't believe it was a professional hit," police Chief David Snowden told reporters.

    Preliminary ballistics tests showed a match between at least one fatal bullet in Chasen's murder and the gun that Smith used to kill himself on Dec. 1 when detectives approached him in a Hollywood apartment lobby, Snowden confirms.

    Smith, 43, a transient with a long rap sheet of robbery and drug crimes, had no ties to Chasen, 64, other than a desire to rob her, police say.

    "We believe that Mr. Smith acted alone," says Snowden.

    Det. Sgt. Mike Publicker added they believe this was a case of a "robbery gone bad," but also called it a "random act of violence."

    "Interviews we've conducted lead us to believe [Smith] was in a desperate point in his life," Publicker continued. "We believe he intended to rob her. We don't believe he was a paid hitman."

    Police added that no shell casings have been found.

    Chasen, 64, was shot multiple times while driving her Mercedes-Benz in the early morning hours of Nov. 16 after leaving a party for the Burlesque premiere.

    Despite theories that Chasen was gunned down from another car, police believe Smith was riding a bicycle when he committed the crime. The bike was later found at the suicide scene.

    According to Smith's neighbor, Terri Gilpin, 46, Smith had openly bragged in the days following Chasen's death that he was the killer, but questions were raised about whether Smith was telling the truth.

    "He said, 'You know that publicist they're talking about on TV? Yeah, I killed her. I'm getting $10,000 for killing her. I did it, I did it,' " Gilpin said.

    Publicker added they are 60-70 percent done with the investigation, which is still ongoing.

    Sounds like complete bullshit. Since the LA cops were SO efficient and effective in investigating OJ Simpson, I'm just not expecting much here.

    He was riding a bicycle and managed to ride level with the moving car and hit her FIVE times in the chest because he's a super great shot and capable of riding at a Tour de France speed. He then carefully picked up all the shell casings, stole nothing and rode off on his bike unobserved by anyone. Who tries to "just rob" a moving car?

    Incredulous reporters quizzed the Beverly Hills police at their press conference today – everyone was flabbergasted to hear that the bullets that killed Ronni Chasen match the gun that Harold Smith used to kill himself. Cops theorized that Smith was desperate for money and it was a random robbery gone bad- ON A BICYCLE! LAPD has yet to turn over the bike to the Beverly Hills cops. Harold was certainly a good shot, but why didn’t he grab Ronni’s handbag on the seat next to her? Beverly Hills police played down the fact that they got the Harold Smith lead from America’s Most Wanted who received a call from a tipster. (Presumably the tipster will collect the $125,000 reward.) There are still a LOT of unanswered questions here so don’t put the Beverly Hills cops on a pedestal yet.

    Yep, I'm ridin' my bike in Beverly Hills, sportin' a large automatic weapon while I'm casually ridin' my bike. Yepper, nothing to see here. Then, I'm a gonna shoot me a rich bitch, 5 deadnuts shots, not take anything from her expensive foreign sportscar, then move along smartly before I can get caught. Sure thing.

    This smells to high heaven.

    Anybody here who knows any actual police personnel, especially in SoCal...start gently prying and buying dinners. The real story is out there somewhere but imo this ain't it.

    "Investigators believe that the "bullets came from a high angle, perhaps from an SUV or other tall vehicle" which would "explain why no bullet casings were ever found anywhere near the scene,""

    "police believed the attack "was planned in advance and not the result of road rage or a carjacking gone awry." The Reporter's website also said there was "relevant footage" from at least one security camera near the site of the shooting."

    its the beverly hills police actually (but i get what you're saying, they're all lousy out here) and they won't allow outside help from the beginning they've said they have it under control

    It's difficult to believe these guys would close this out on the flimsy evidence they have. First the bullets don't match - now, they do! First the shots came from above, such as an SUV - now they came from some guy on a bike who happened to be driving around BH at night unnoticed, who also shot her accurately five times, found ALL the bullet casings in the dark, forgot to rob her and sailed off merrily into the night. That's lame; CSI has better plots than that.
