Los Angeles, CA—LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn has released the following statement regarding the arrest of a suspect in the murder of Susan Leeds, a resident of Rancho Palos Verdes who was stabbed to death in her car in the parking garage of the Promenade shopping center in Rolling Hills Estates on May 3: 

“I want to thank Sheriff McDonnell, Captain Beringer, and the Sheriff’s Department homicide detectives for their dedication to this case and to the safety of the neighborhoods they patrol. The violent murder of Susan Leeds shocked the community and I am grateful that there is a suspect in custody. While nothing can make up for their loss, I hope that Susan’s family and friends can at least take comfort in knowing that the Sheriff’s Department is working hard to bring her murderer to justice.
