It was not all that late when Ms. Chasen was murdered. Thus far it is not yet known if there were any witnesses to the crime. She was driving during the attack and crashed the car into a telephone pole. No one was with her in the car when authorities arrived at the scene.
Some of the homes in the area where the car crashed have outside security cameras, notes Radar Online. There may be security video that shows what happened to cause this horrible death.
Could the crime have been an attempted car jacking? Perhaps she was stopped at a light when someone approached her car. The police investigating the murder have not yet identified any suspects. There is also speculation that this murder could have been a professional hit. But why would anyone want to kill a Hollywood publicist?
In today’s world, driving a luxury vehicle does make one a target for crime. Unfortunately, Ennis Cosby, the only son of entertainer Bill Cosby, was shot to death while trying to change a tire on a Mercedes he was driving. The crime also occurred in California. Ennis Cosby was in a PhD program at Columbia University at the time of his death. It seems that while behind the wheel of a Mercedes one is at high risk for violence.

Gun violence is the scourge of America. So many lives are being lost to gun violence every year in this country. Too many families are dealing with grief due to a relative being shot to death.
No one expects to die in a hail of bullets, but too many Americans are finding themselves in just that situation. And in these tough economic times, gun violence will probably be increasing as crime rates rise.
And currently too many Americans are stockpiling weapons. Unfortunately, when their home is robbed those weapons end up out on the streets, too often used in violent crimes.
