Publicist Ronni Chasen was murdered last night on her way home from an after-party after the premier of the new Cher film “Burlesque.” The 64-year-old was, according to police, shot five times in her car. LAT reporter Andrew Blankstein explained that the police are not releasing the detail of if she was shot from the inside of her car or the outside. Chasen is right in the center of the Hollywood community and connected to many in the press as well. “It’s a crime that sends shock waves through LA,” said Blankstein.
Indeed. Especially since it happened in one of the nicest areas of Los Angeles, where you move to so you won’t get shot to death in your car.
At this point the motive isn’t clear, what has been made apparent, at least to reporters, the case is pretty wide open.
Rest in peace Ronni.
