Conspiracy Theorists Far From Done with Ronni Chasen Murder

Although the Beverly Hills Police Department has closed the books on their investigation into the November 16, 2010 murder of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen, the many skeptics out there remain skeptical. And not just about the Chasen end of it.

News of a final, new BHPD finding—that the gun used to kill Chasen was originally stolen from a cop in the San Fernando Valley–was first reported last night by TheWrap. But to those commenting on TheWrap piece, it’s not just Harold Smith‘s culpability in the Chasen shooting that seems preposterous. There’s also the matter of how Smith himself died. Says NURREDIN:

Cover-up and conspiracy theories are already flying around the comments sections of this afternoon’s reports. At this point, FBLA feels the only appropriate thing to do is file Smith alongside his imaginary brethren.
