Sources: Gun Used To Kill Publicist Ronni Chasen Belonged To Police Officer
BEVERLY HILLS (CBS) — The Beverly Hills Police Department has officially closed the Ronni Chasen murder case.
In a press released sent out Friday, the Beverly Hills Police Department concluded that Chasen, who was killed in her car after leaving the premiere of “Burlesque,”was not the victim of a professional hit.”
Sources confirm to CBS 2’s Dave Lopez that the Hollywood publicist was shot with a gun that had been stolen from a police officer during a robbery in the San Fernando Valley.
Harold Smith, the ex-convict accused of killing her, committed suicide two weeks after her death. Police say the gun used to kill Chasen was the same weapon Smith used to commit suicide.
