After spending 33 years with the Los Angeles Police Department, most in the homicide division in South L.A., Sal LaBarbera is retiring.
A family is mourning a 26-year-old man who was shot to death in South Los Angeles Thursday morning.
On Twitter, Sal LaBarbera is a popular LA detective known as LA Murder Cop. But a tweet he recently sent to his 3,265 followers — showing a bloody crime scene — has some questioning if it’s appropriate to show something so graphic on social media.
The Los Angeles Police Department have made 110 arrests in connection with cold cases in a matter of months. LAPD Chief Charlie Beack said it has been a remarkable turnaround that was made possible because of a special task force and grant money provided by the federal government.
