Ronni Chasen had not updated her will never thinking that she was going to be slaughtered in one of the most horrific murder scenes on Sunset Boulevard in recent memory (this is not to exclude the killing of Lauren Ann Freeman by a hit and run Bentley driver on Sunset just a few weeks before!). Ronni’s family had a life and their own money and careers way before Ronni was murdered. Now pay attention, a colleague of Ms. Chasen’s in Palm Springs has put a $100,000 reward for…
…big money will light a big flame under this case and keep it simmering hot.
….Here is what I am suggesting: the family could put up $500,000 to $1,000,000 as a reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons involved in her murder. Those that were involved in her murder are not the only one or ones who know, there are….
Note: My suggestion is in no way meant to place a cloud on the loss to this family…I really believe that a large sum of money will make a huge difference in bringing the killer out into the light, and it is one way for the family to help find some justice for her. Please do not take from this suggestion that the family may well already be thinking of doing this, I don’t know.

NBC Today program has update on the Ronni Chasen Murder
The AP has reported that whether he was a Hollywood hit man or an ex-con with a big mouth still isn’t known.
One thing is certain about the man who shot himself to death rather than talk to police investigating the killing of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen: He was an armed career criminal possibly looking at another stretch in prison, whether he had any connection to Chasen’s death or not
Documents obtained Friday by The Associated Press reveal that Harold Martin Smith, who acquaintances say had boasted of killing Chasen for money, was a convicted felon with a long criminal history….
…Smith pulled a gun from one of those pockets and shot himself in the head
Police will only say Smith was a “person of interest” in their investigation and not necessarily a suspect. But as a convicted felon with a gun, criminal experts say it was likely he knew that he was in trouble no matter what he told police.
The AP article went on to quote famed Beverly Hills P. I. John J. Nazarian from the Today Show segment: “”Here’s Harold talking all this (expletive). Cops are standing there looking at him, he’s thinking, I didn’t kill Ronni but I’m standing here with a gun in my pocket,” speculated private investigator John Nazarian, a former sheriff’s deputy who has investigated homicide cases. “He’s going to go back to prison, for life probably. So he just decided to check out.”
The AP article also quoted Gil Carrillo, one of the Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives whose investigation helped capture and send notorious Night Stalker killer Richard Ramirez to prison for life in 1989 for killing 13 people about America’s Most Wanted Claim to fame in this case had stated they turned over the tip that let Beverly Hills Police to seek Smith out. Carrillo stated: “. If that was the case, Beverly Hills police would have routinely followed up on it, said retired homicide detective Gil Carrillo. “Does that mean he’s part of it? Or is he just some guy not dealing with his mental faculties who is just seeking attention?”
Court records show Smith, a transient, was no stranger to Beverly Hills, where Chasen was shot to death on Nov. 20. He was arrested for robberies in that city and neighboring West Hollywood and sentenced to 11 years in prison in 1998.
