South Whittier, CA – On Wednesday afternoon, Los Angeles County Supervisor Janice Hahn issued the following statement about the homicide reported in unincorporated South Whittier by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
“I’m outraged by this vicious attack on an elderly person in his own home, where he was supposed to feel safest. This is a tight-knit community where neighbors look after and care about each other. Their concern is what ultimately led Sheriff’s deputies to investigate. I can’t imagine the heartbreak his neighbors and loved ones are feeling at this sudden loss. My prayers are with them all.
I’m thankful to Sheriff Luna and to the deputies from our Norwalk and Pico Rivera stations for their quick work to track down and share footage of the suspect. This person has not been brought to justice yet and could still be a threat. If you have any information that could help investigators solve this crime, I urge you to bring it to the Sheriff’s Department.”
