Ronni Chasen Said She Was Being Followed: Signs Of Possible Professional Hit On Hollywood Publicist Growing
Some experts say Ronni Chasen's homicide looks like it was a professional hit.
The New York Post reports that Chasen thought she was being followed in March and was "scared." At the the same time a resident of the Beverly Hills neighborhood where Chasen was felled says motorcycles were heard cruising up and down quiet Whittier Drive before the killing.
Another said the five shots that hit Chasen in the chest just before 12:30 a.m. on Nov. 16 were "immaculately timed."
This has led at least a few experts to conclude this feels like a professional hit. Former FBI Special Agent and Forensic Accountant Harold Copus:
"It seems to be somebody who knows exactly what to do with no hesitation, somebody familiar with [the] military or weapons who was watching their target closely. Investigators will now have to go over everything with a fine-tooth comb -- check her office, emails, cell phone records, and try to establish anybody she may have had a problem with in the past."
We reported earlier Tuesday that Beverly Hills police say they're fully equipped to deal with such a high-profile homicide case.
