$75K Reward Offered In Home-Invasion Shooting Of ‘America’s Next Top Model’ Director
LOS ANGELES (CBS/AP) — Los Angeles officials are offering a $75,000 reward in the fatal home-invasion shooting of a director on the reality TV show “America’s Next Top Model” in Eagle Rock.
Councilman Jose Huizar introduced the motion Friday in an effort to spur leads in the Nov. 27 killing of James Marcus Howe.
Police say a man posing as a solicitor knocked on Howe’s door in the Eagle Rock neighborhood at 10:55 a.m. and tried to force his way inside.
A fight ensued, and another man pulled out a handgun, opening fire. Howe’s wife was injured, but their 6-year-old son unharmed.
Howe, 42, worked on reality TV shows such as “America’s Next Top Model,” “A Shot At Love With Tila Tequila,” and “Cake Boss.”
Police are looking for two men in their late teens or early 20s and a woman. They were driving a Ford Mustang.
