"Operation Cop Infiltration ~ 2014!"



Oakland, CA ~ USA -- An undercover police officer at an anti police violence and killing protest in Oakland pulled a gun on protesters (before or after another officer was allegedly assaulted, depending on which account you read). The officer had been involved with Occupy Oakland, presumably in his role as an undercover officer, prior to this protest and was called out as a cop at the protest along with another undercover officer.

Cops that Sexually Offend! - Part XIII



«•June 16, 2009•»

Bryan, Texas - Police Chief Ty Morrow resigned Monday (June 15, 2009) afternoon following a lengthy investigation into a family violence call made to his home. With City Manager David Watkins standing beside him at a press conference, Morrow said his personal conduct off duty has compromised his ability to lead the agency. Two sergeants responded to Morrow’s home after the chief called police at 12:43 a.m. on a Sunday in November (2008) and said an argument with his wife had become physical and he handcuffed her. He was placed on paid administrative leave the next day and has not returned to work since.

Joseph E. Wild


June 23, 2009

PORTLAND, Ore. - The allegations that a Portland police officer repeatedly called and harassed women are an embarrasment to the Police Bureau, Police Chief Rosie Sizer said Monday.

"We hold public trust as the most important thing we have as police officers and when allegations surface of an employee betraying that public trust, I think it hurts the heart of every police officer," she said.

"These allegations tarnish the badge we wear," said Scott Westerman with the Portland Police Association. "They tarnish the badge of everyone in the country."


Joseph E. Wild, 28, faces dozens of charges of official misconduct and telephonic harassment. He was indicted by a grand jury on Monday, June 22, 2009 and will be formally charged on Tuesday, June 23, 2009.

According to investigators, police began looking into Wild's activities when a woman filed a report that she had been receiving unwanted harassing phone calls from him. During the investigation, detectives discovered additional victims who said they had also received unwanted phone calls.

Wild was arrested just this month, which raises the question of why it took four months for police to finally make a move.





Court documents show someone using Officer Wild's police-issued cell phone made sexually explicit phone calls to fellow police officers starting back in February. As the Police Bureau began its investigation, Wild's phone number became the subject of a second investigation a month later. A teenage girl said someone with Wild's phone number called her dozens of times and kept threatening to rape her.

"In this case, as soon as the info was brought to our attention, the tendency is to rush right out, take the cell phone, put him on leave and then do the investigation," said Lt. Bob Day with the Portland Police Bureau. "The problem is, we react too quickly, we can't gather the correct information and that can hurt the investigation."


Vinson Walker


June 23, 2009

CLEVELAND, Ohio — A Cuyahoga County Common Pleas jury found Garfield Heights police officer Vinson Walker not guilty Tuesday on charges of gross sexual imposition, attempted rape and rape. Walker, 30, was accused of inappropriately touching a 22-year-old woman on three occasions, trying to force her to have sex, and eventually raping her on Nov. 16, 2008 at his Cleveland home. The crimes were said to have occurred while he was off-duty. Walker has remained on paid leave since Cleveland police arrested him at the Garfield Heights police station Nov. 26, 2008. It was unclear if Walker would return to regular duty after the acquittal.


NOT-GUILTY DOES NOT MEAN INNOCENT. IT ONLY MEANS THAT THE JURY DECIDED THERE WAS A REASONABLE DOUBT BECAUSE IT WAS A HE SAID/SHE SAID TRIAL.

In fact, the prosecution [proffered] testimony from other women [regarding Walker's sexually offensive character] that was suppressed by the judge. The court did this "so as not to prejudice the jury". If the defense attorney had opened the door, this testimony would then have been allowed. Of course this didn't happen, so the jury didn't get the opportunity to hear what these other women had to say.

1. How can an officer get pay for 7 months without his guilt or innocence being known?

2. Did the city plan his not-guilty plea by having a certain Police Captain on the force testifying for him?


Thomas Tolstoy


October 7, 2010Update!

Officer Thomas Tolstoy, the serial rapist on Officer Jeffrey Cujdik’s "elite" narco-police shake-down squad, who, besides participating in repeated evidence-less paramilitary drug raids, also repeatedly took the opportunity to pull women aside during these hyperviolent home invasions and sexually assault them. The police department’s response to three independent complaints from April 2008 to February 2009 was to temporarily place Tolstoy on desk duty (from October 2008 to January 2009), then put him back on the street to do more drug raids with Cujdik. The other stories about Cujdik’s wolfpack appeared in local newspapers in March 2009; Tolstoy was finally put back on desk duty in May 2009. Meanwhile, while Tolstoy is rewarded for his sexual assaults with an easy desk job, he continues to receive not only his regular salary of $57,800, but also thousands of dollars in overtime pay for sitting his ass on a court-house bench while the DA extends subpoenas on tainted drug cases in which he will almost certainly never testify. The bill for maintaining Tolstoy in the lifestyle to which he has become accustomed will, of course, be sent along to Philadelphia taxpayers, including Tolstoy’s three known victims. Deputy District Attorney John Delaney explains that the D.A.’s office continues to issue these money-wasting subpoenas on dead-end cases because "We want to maintain the status quo." No doubt.

June 21, 2009

The burly narcotics officer yanked down the young woman's underwear as they stood in the doorway of her second-floor Frankford apartment, she said. The officer - one of 10 who participated in a drug raid of the apartment downstairs - allegedly jammed his fingers into her vagina. When she tried to pull away, he grabbed her hard enough to rip her shirt, she said.

The penetration of his fingers was so forceful that she began to bleed. She said she thought he had scratched her - or worse, caused internal damage. A few hours later, she ended up at Episcopal Hospital. Nurses ordered a rape kit and alerted the police Special Victims Unit.

The night was Oct. 16, 2008 and the woman didn't know the name of the officer. But the police Internal Affairs Bureau had a hunch: "Despite the lack of photo identification at the scene, there was other information that caused us to narrow the scope," said Internal Affairs Chief Inspector Anthony DiLacqua. "We had evidence presented to us that gave us reason to look at [Officer Thomas Tolstoy] more closely than other officers." Tolstoy was immediately taken off the street (eight (8) months later).

One of Tolstoy's alleged victim[s], "Naomi," is an intensely private 24-year-old woman. She has never been charged with or convicted of a crime. The [media] convinced her to talk about the night she says she wants to forget. At her request, the [media] agreed to use a false name - Naomi - to protect her privacy and because she's terrified of retaliation. She has had so many threatening phone calls - telling her not to talk - that she has repeatedly changed her phone number, she said. She said she went to the hospital after the assault simply to "get checked out." "I felt nasty after it," she said with a grimace. "I didn't know where his hands had been. I felt like with the force he used, like he scratched me."

Naomi is one of at least three women who say Tolstoy fondled, groped or sexually violated them during drug raids. Lady Gonzalez, 29, of Kensington, and Dagma Rodriguez, 33, of West Kensington, have alleged that Tolstoy stroked their breasts during raids. The [media] reported their allegations on June 1, 2009. None of the three women has a criminal record. The women don't know each other and spoke with the [media] independently only after reporters tracked them down.

Tolstoy, 35, a 10-year-veteran of the force who has been with the Narcotics Field Unit since December 2002, is one focus of a growing FBI and police probe into allegations of police misconduct. The alleged misconduct was first reported by the [media] in February with complaints that Tolstoy's fellow squad member, Officer Jeffrey Cujdik, sometimes lied on search-warrant applications to get into suspected drug homes. In March, the [media] reported that Cujdik, Tolstoy and other officers disabled surveillance cameras during raids of bodegas and smoke shops that sold tiny ziplock bags, which police consider drug paraphernalia. After the officers sliced or yanked the wires, thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise went missing, the merchants said. Now the probe has grown to include allegations that Tolstoy abused women during [these same] raids.

Naomi said a detective from Internal Affairs called her on June 4, 2009 to ask if she "wanted to press charges and go to court." She told him no. "I just want it to go away," Naomi said. "Most days I wish I had never gone to the hospital." "The Police Department should take away his badge," said Naomi's boyfriend, Raheem, 23, who was at the Frankford apartment during the October raid. The [media] is withholding Raheem's last name to protect Naomi's identity. "They're supposed to serve and protect. But this officer violated her as a woman. He touched on her and threatened her," said Raheem, who wasn't arrested during the raid. "It wasn't right."

The April 3, 2008 Raid

It was just after 5 p.m. on April 3, 2008, during a drug raid on the West Kensington rowhouse where she lived. Officer Thomas Tolstoy had ordered her into the room, telling her that he needed to talk, she said. Dagma Rodriguez stood in a dark bedroom as Officer Tolstoy moved closer. She trembled in fear.

"He started rubbing my breasts, rubbing my nipples," said Rodriguez, a 33-year-old mother of three. "I was so scared. My legs wouldn't stop shaking."

Rodriguez said she grabbed Tolstoy's wrists to try to make him stop. He didn't, she said.

" 'You've got some big t--s. I love these t--s. I bet you've got big bras. What size are you?' " she said he asked. " 'Can I see them? Let me see them.' "

"I said, 'No! No!' I was so nervous, I started crying. He told me to shut the f--- up . . . . He kept rubbing me and I started crying more."


On May 20, 2009 Tolstoy became the fourth officer to be taken off the street in connection with an expanding FBI and Internal Affairs investigation into allegations of police misconduct.

That alleged misconduct was first reported by the media in February (2009) with complaints about Narcotics Field Unit Officer Jeffrey Cujdik, Tolstoy's fellow squad member. One of Cujdik's informants told the media that Cujdik sometimes lied on search-warrant applications to get into suspected drug homes.

The scandal expanded in March (2009) after the [media] reported that Cujdik, Tolstoy and other officers disabled surveillance cameras during raids of mom-and-pop stores that sold tiny ziplock bags, which police consider drug paraphernalia. After the officers cut or yanked the wires, thousands of dollars in cash and merchandise went missing, the merchants said.

Rodriguez is one of at least three women, including Lady Gonzalez, of Kensington, who say they were fondled and groped by an officer. Rodriguez and Gonzalez later identified the officer as Tolstoy. Police sources say that Tolstoy is also the focus of an investigation into the third woman's complaint.

Tolstoy has been placed on desk duty, taking reports of minor crimes over the phone, said Internal Affairs Chief Inspector Anthony DiLacqua.

Tolstoy had to relinquish his police-issued weapon "due to an Internal Affairs investigation," said DiLacqua, who declined to elaborate.

Asked whether Tolstoy is under increased supervision, DiLacqua replied, "In a sense, yes. He's not in the field. His supervisor could be sitting two or three desks down.

Toddler Justice!


Updated: July 11, 2011
Posted 3:59 a.m. PDT, June 10, 2011


"I think it is pretty straightforward. The child is under seven and is under what is called the age of reason[.]"

-- Nicole S. Urdang, a psychotherapist and licensed mental health counselor in Buffalo, N.Y.


KANSAS CITY, MO -- A 5-year-old girl is facing possible murder charges for allegedly drowning a toddler who was crying too much. Police are waiting for a medical examiner's report on how Jermane Johnson Jr., died, but are investigating the death as a homicide, spokesman Darin Snapp said Thursday. "I've been in law enforcement for 20 years and it's the youngest suspect I can remember," Snapp said. "It's extremely rare." Johnson, 18 months old, was in a Kansas City house on June 3rd with other children at the time of his death. Police say a 16-year-old relative who was supposed to be babysitting suffers from a mental disorder. She was sleeping when the drowning happened at around midnight.



An adult left the teenager in charge of several young children, including Jermane, so they could pick up the boys father at a bus stop. The father had come into town from St. Louis to retrieve Jermane and take him home. Investigators learned through interviews that a 5-year-old girl in the house got irritated with her young cousin, Snapp said. "She said she got angry because he would not stop crying and she held him under the water in a bathtub until he stopped crying," Snapp said.

The tub had not been emptied after the youngsters to a bath earlier in the evening.

Snapp said a decision on to handle the case will be left up to prosecutors after the medical examiner's report is released.

Police say they are also looking into other aspects of the case, including the welfare of other children in the home and the decision to leave the children alone.

Brothers in Homicide!


September 15, 2010

A Coweta County firefighter is facing multiple charges in the death of the 2-year-old son of his fiancee. Casey Allen Spradlin, 25, faces counts of felony murder, malice murder, first-degree cruelty to children and aggravated battery in the death of Brayden Robinson, said John Bankhead, spokesman for the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.

On Sept. 3, 2010 emergency personnel responded to a 911 call from a residence in Luthersville, Bankhead said. Inside the home they found Brayden unresponsive and he was airlifted to Egleston Children’s Hospital in Atlanta. Brayden later died from his injuries.

Spradlin, who was caring for Brayden at the time, told officials the boy had been injured in a fall. But medical personnel who treated Brayden were skeptical, and investigators determined that the child died from blunt force head trauma, not a fall, Bankhead said. Spradlin was arrested Tuesday in Meriwether County. He is being held without bond in the Meriwether County jail.

NYPD - BlueBeat


August 30, 2010

An NYPD cop whose wife called 911 for help against a gang of thugs says he was brutally beaten by baton-wielding fellow officers who stormed his Queens home. Larry Jackson suffered a broken right hand and multiple bruises from kicks and billy-club blows he said he got from the men in blue called to his home when a gunman menaced guests at his daughter’s birthday party. “To get my butt beat like that was unnecessary,” said the six-year veteran assigned to the 110th Precinct. “We called the police, and this is what happened to me.” Jackson, who is black, said the excessive force by the cops, who were white, might have been racially motivated. “They didn’t treat me like a house-owner calling for help,” he said. “Everyone who lives in the 113th Precinct is not a perp.”

Jackson’s wife, Charlene, made a 911 call around 1:15 a.m. Sunday as her unarmed husband faced down thugs armed with a gun and bats who showed up as partygoers started leaving his home in Rochdale. “I told the 911 operator it’s my daughter’s 21st birthday and my husband is a police officer and there’s a young man with a gun,” she said.

Larry Jackson, wearing an apron with the slogan, “I’m the chef and I’m awesome,” said he did not identify himself to the street thugs as a cop – but was able to convince them to leave. They were slinking off when the first patrol car from the 113th Precinct roared up and a sergeant got out. Charlene Jackson said she tried to tell the sergeant what happened when her niece yelled from the house that there was a fight inside. The sergeant’s driver ran inside and struck a friend of the family with his baton, the Jackson's said. The sergeant then pushed Larry Jackson with his baton, they said, and when Jackson grabbed the sergeant, another cop began choking him from behind. Jackson was knocked down and fell on his 82-year-old mother-in-law who briefly lost consciousness, he said. “I’m covering my face and getting hit everywhere,” he said. “Then somebody pepper sprayed me.” The couple said cops hit at least six family members and friends with batons. Their stepson, a cousin and a nephew were charged with disorderly conduct.

NYPD - Update


August 14, 2009

Grand Jury Fails!


A white NYPD officer was cleared by a grand jury in the shooting of an off-duty black cop. Undercover cop Andrew Dunton, who fired a half-dozen shots during the deadly Harlem street showdown, faces no criminal charges in the May 28, 2009 killing of Officer Omar Edwards. The grand jury heard from 20 people - including police and medical witnesses - before returning its decision.

"The grand jury's finding that Officer Dunton had not committed a crime did not mean that race was not a contributing factor in Officer Edwards' death."
--Rep. Charles Rangel (D-Harlem) August 14, 2009.


Edwards, 28, was off-duty with his gun drawn while chasing a auto burglary suspect. The grand jury relied on testimony by the burglary suspect Miguel Goita. According to police, after his arrest, Goita told police that Edwards "tried to kill me."

C.J. Question: If Edwards was trying to "kill" the burglary suspect Miguel Goita, why didn't he just shoot, instead of attempting an apprehension?

"It remains questionable whether the grand jury examined the actions of Officer Dunton, or merely the actions of the alleged thief in a confused, mixed presentation."

New York prosecutors declined any comment.

Previously Updated: June 17, 2009

NEW YORK, NY – A video has emerged from two witnesses at the scene during the "accidental shooting" of [Black] Officer Omar J. Edwards [by a white officer] while he was off duty in New York City.

As the video shows, NYPD were the least bit concerned that Mr. Edwards may have been an off-duty cop.

Angie Clark


Update!


LILLINGTON - A Lee County deputy has been charged with murder in the July shooting death of her estranged husband. Angie Renee Clark, 40, of the 200 block of Ripley Road in Cameron, was charged Tuesday, according to an arrest report from the Harnett County Sheriff's Office. Clark turned herself in at the Sheriff's Office after a grand jury handed up an indictment Tuesday, the report said.

She is accused of fatally shooting Michael Clark, 44, outside the couple's house on Beehive Lane in Broadway on June 10, 2009. Clark was off-duty when the shooting happened.

The couple had been separated for about four years, according to family members, and Michael Clark was trying to reconcile with his wife. Court records show Angie Clark had filed two domestic violence orders in the past eight years, including one in December. Clark had been on administrative leave from the Lee County Sheriff's Office since the shooting. Sheriff's officials couldn't be reached for comment this afternoon. Clark's bail was set at $25,000.

June 11, 2009

Broadway, N.C. — An off-duty Lee County sheriff's deputy is on paid administrative leave Thursday night after investigators say she fatally shot her estranged husband at their home in Broadway. Harnett County deputies responded to the home of Michael and Angie Clark at 8 Bee Hive Lane at 10:22 p.m. Wednesday after a report of a shooting there. Michael Clark, 44, died at the scene, deputies said. Michael Clark's father said that the couple had a rocky marriage which involved "physical abuse on both ends." "We don’t know if it was a justified shooting or an unjustified shooting ... I hate my son is gone," said Jerome Clark.





According to court records, Angie Clark took out a domestic violence protective order against her husband in 2001 and last December. In the most recent case, she said her husband shot at her car. She also claimed he threatened to "kill all of you" before paying child support. In January, however, she voluntarily dismissed the case. Jerome Clark said the two had been married about six years and had five children. They were separated and living separately, he added. "He loved his kids very dearly. Whatever it took for him to provide for those kids, he did. He’d give his entire heart,” said Melinda Frederick, victim's sister. "The investigation has indicated that the victim was shot by his wife, Angie Clark, age 40, of the same address," Harnett County authorities wrote in a news release Thursday. "There have been no charges filed in the case and no other information will be released at this time." Lee County Sheriff Tracy Carter said he knew the couple had been separated, but was not aware of any serious problems. "And she's done a good job. She gets along well with people in her shift and in the community, and we've been real pleased with her,” Carter said. Michael Clark's body was sent to the Medical Examiner’s Office in Chapel Hill for an autopsy. Investigators would not say whether the gun used in the shooting was the one Angie Clark carried on the job. She has been a deputy in Lee County for about two and a half years.


James Parker


Update


Dec. 11, 2009

SEBRING -- It looks like the prosecution will not be seeking the death penalty against former Avon Park police officer James Parker. Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin was not in the Highlands County Courthouse Thursday morning for Parker's pretrial conference and stand-in David Ward could not advise when Judge Peter Estrada asked whether the state would be seeking death.

However, Parker's public defender told Estrada he had spoken with Houchin and was told the state would not be seeking the death penalty. If they were, Mills continued, he would have insisted on using a court reporter at Thursday's hearing. Estrada noted for the record that no court reporter was present. He added that, while he couldn't speak for the state, it was his understanding that the decision had gone through the assistant state attorney's death penalty committee. "I have halted my penalty phase preparations," he said.

The PD asked that the case be continued until March so he and Houchin can go through other discovery issues and set depositions. Estrada granted the continuance and the next court date is March 18, 2010.

Parker, 33, is charged with first-degree murder and aggravated child abuse that stem from the death of 22-month-old Kaedyn Short earlier this year. Short died May 27, 2009 at a hospice home where she was being cared for in her final days. She was the daughter of Parker's former live-in girlfriend and had been on life support at a St. Petersburg hospital for some time after being hospitalized for severe injuries she suffered March 29, 2009.

The child, then 20 months, was initially brought to Highlands Regional Medical Center with multiple bruises and an apparent skull fracture. Her mother, Jennifer Short, was at work at the time of the incident and Parker was watching the child, according to the Highlands County Sheriff's Office.

Jennifer Short was also indicted in June on felony counts of failure to report child abuse and neglect of a child causing great bodily harm.

June 27, 2009

A Highlands County grand jury returned an indictment June 24, 2009 charging former Avon Park police officer James Parker with the [First Degree] murder of 22-month-old Kaedyn Short. The grand jury also charged Parker, 32, with aggravated child abuse. His first court appearance was set for a June 25, 2009. Parker remain[ed] in the Highlands County Jail in lieu of a $250,000 bail stemming from the initial child abuse charge.

May 27, 2009

AVON PARK - A 22-month-old girl who authorities say was severely injured by Avon Park police officer James Parker died from her injuries today. Kaedyn Short passed away at 9:38 a.m. at a hospice home where she was being cared for in her final days, according to a Highlands County Sheriff's Office press release. Short was the daughter of Parker's former live-in girlfriend and had been on life support for some time after being hospitalized for multiple bruises and an apparent skull fracture March 29, 2009.

On March 29, 2009 deputies with the sheriff's office were called to Highlands Regional Medical Center after Short, then 20 months old, was being brought into the emergency room with multiple bruises on her body and an apparent skull fracture. Doctors told deputies that Short suffered multiple skull fractures and she was going to be transferred. Because of weather conditions, a helicopter could not get to Highlands Regional. Instead, a mobile pediatric unit from All Children's Hospital in St. Petersburg was sent to Sebring to pick her up.

Her mother was at work at the time of the incident and Parker was reportedly watching the child, the press release stated. Parker was arrested and charged with aggravated child abuse, domestic violence related, and remains in the Highlands County Jail in lieu of a $250,000 bond.

On June 26, 2004, Parker (pictured left) was arrested on a misdemeanor domestic violence charge involving his former wife. He entered into a diversion program and the state attorney's office eventually deferred prosecution. He was also involved in a 2008 New Year's Eve ruckus involving Pete and Sue Diaz of Avon Park. The couple was recently acquitted by a jury on battery charges against Parker.

Parker has been with the Avon Park Police Department since 2006, and was previously employed by the department for roughly 20 months between 2002 and 2004. He was placed on administrative leave without pay pending further investigation.

At Parker's May bond hearing, sheriff's office Det. Tyrone Tyson said there was evidence of older injuries on the child, including a two-month-old fractured right collarbone and a broken elbow, which occurred about a week prior to March 29, 2009.

On May 4, 2009 attorney Richard Pipkin, speaking on behalf of Short's mother, had told a court room gathered for Parker's bond hearing that the child was being taken off life support. If she did live, doctors said she would be a vegetative state, the attorney had added.

The sheriff's office is continuing to investigate the case, along with the state attorney's office, District 10 Medical Examiner's Office and the Department of Children and Families. Assistant State Attorney Steve Houchin could not comment Wednesday afternoon if his office will file first-degree murder charges against Parker.

"Naturally, the autopsy will be the next step," Houchin said.

Jose Castillo


June 9, 2009

His job was to uphold the law, but a Harris County Precinct 6 reserve deputy constable is now on the other side of the law, KPRC Local 2 reported Monday. Angel Erevia, 31, had a daughter, Angelina, who just turned 1 on Sunday. Now she's left without a father. "He was a sweet person," said Erevia's mother, Santos Rodriguez. "He always helped people." Houston Police said reserve deputy constable Jose Castillo shot Erevia to death. "What kind of law do we have if they can just go up to somebody and shoot them like an animal?" asked Rodriguez. Police said that at about 2 a.m. Friday, the two men's girlfriends got into a fight inside Buffalo Fred's on North Shepherd Drive. Employees kicked everyone out who was involved, and police said Castillo, 39, was one of them. But the fight didn't end there. "I just remember the gunshots," said Erevia's girlfriend, Araceli Sanchez, who witnessed the shooting.

Police said Castillo (pictured left) shot four times. Sanchez said Erevia never had a chance. "He wasn't even armed," said Sanchez. "He's just not that type person." Erevia died before he got to the hospital. "I don't have no alternative but to terminate him," Harris County Precinct 6 Constable Victor Trevino said. Castillo had been working as a reserve deputy as a volunteer for 14 years. Trevino said he was never on the Precinct's payroll and had no disciplinary problems. "He seemed like a family guy, a hard working guy," said Trevino. "I was shocked." Castillo is no longer a peace officer. Instead, he's charged with murder. "They need to put him away. He took a life," said Sanchez. Castillo made an arrangement with HPD to turn himself in. He'll be held on $100,000 bond. HPD said he already admitted to the shooting in a written statement, but said it was self-defense.




Gregory Conner

March 5, 2009

A reserve officer with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office has been arrested on charges of attempted murder and aggravated stalking. Greg Conner, 48, was taken into custody Thursday outside a fast food restaurant on State Road 71 South. Conner is also the firing range master and a firearms instructor for Chipola College, and had once been a full-time deputy with JCSO. According to a press release from the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (see below), an investigation “revealed that Conner intended to kill his (estranged) wife and her boyfriend.”


News Release from Florida Dept. of Law Enforcement - For Immediate Release


March 5, 2009

The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office (JCSO) today arrested Gregory Conner, 48, in Marianna, Fla. for attempted murder and aggravated stalking. The joint investigation revealed that Conner intended to kill his wife and her boyfriend. FDLE and JCSO arrested Conner after confirming his intent to carry out his plans. Conner was an auxiliary Deputy Sheriff with the Jackson County Sheriff’s Office and was immediately removed from his position by Sheriff Roberts. “I am disappointed with Conner’s actions,” said Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts. “I am glad that Conner and his family were unharmed in the incident.” The State Attorney’s Office for the Fourteenth Judicial Circuit assisted in the investigation. Conner was booked into the Jackson County Correctional Facility.


Jackson County Sheriff Lou Roberts said Conner and his wife had been separated for some time, and that JCSO investigators had received information [...] that Conner was stalking her and her boyfriend. According to Roberts, Conner had been seen at odd hours in the area of his wife’s home in the Grand Ridge/Shady Grove area and the boyfriend’s dwelling, which are some distance apart. Roberts said officers had confronted Conner at one point, and he had denied stalking the couple. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) got involved [...] after receiving further information about Conner’s alleged plans. Concern grew as authorities from FDLE and JCSO ramped up their investigation Wednesday evening, said Tommy Ford of FDLE. According to Ford, it appeared that Conner was progressing toward a plan of murder and that “overt acts” had been taken in the planning process. He and Roberts declined to give details of the surveillance and other investigative techniques employed which led authorities to that conclusion. They would reveal little further information except to say that it did not appear to be a ‘murder for hire’ plot but rather something that Conner planned to carry out himself. Unspecified evidence has been gathered in the case, Ford and Roberts said. While they would not reveal any particulars, Ford and Roberts agreed that the alleged plan was an elaborate one that, if carried out, would have involved sudden death and would have had the clear earmarks of homicide. The alleged plan was “unfolding rapidly” [...] when Conner’s wife, boyfriend, and the two Conner children were moved to a place of safety overnight, according to Ford. Conner was arrested Thursday outside a fast food restaurant on State Road 71 South. He offered no resistance and the arrest was without incident, Roberts and Ford said. Conner was booked into the Jackson County Correctional Facility. For years, Conner was the person who most often greeted Roberts and his officers when they arrived at the local firing range to do the quarterly shooting necessary to keep them qualified for weapons.

B.A.R.T.+L.A.P.D.=187(P.C.)



November 17, 2009

SACRAMENTO, CA — For years, the Sekhon & Sekhon law firm was renowned as a beacon of hope. The firm, boasting a 95 percent success rate, helped more than 1,000 immigrants from a half-dozen nations get political asylum in the United States based on a fear of persecution. Many of those new asylees now stand to be deported, because as many as 700 — coached by the firm's lawyers and interpreters — told phony stories of torture and rape to immigration judges and asylum officers. In June, following a three-month trial in Sacramento's federal court, three of the firm's lawyers and two interpreters were convicted of conspiracy to defraud the government. Prosecutors call it one of the most brazen immigration scams in U.S. history.

Dept. Public Safety!


June 13, 2011

Below is a video of Officer Arturo Perez. He resigned from the Department of Public Safety shortly after the incident, rather than get fired. He was later tried for misdemeanor assault, found guilty, and sentenced to a six month suspended sentence, given a $1,300 fine, and forbidden from working in law enforcement for 10 years. As for the victim, apparently she suffered a facial fracture, a split chin, and chipped teeth, but didn't have her teeth knocked out like the headline claims.



DALLAS - (WCJB) (Dec. 10, 2010) A former Department of Public Safety trooper convicted of misdemeanor assault for using excessive force was sentenced on Thursday. Arturo Perez received a 6-month suspended sentence, probation and a $1,300 fine. Additionally, he cannot serve as a law enforcement officer for at 10 years. Perez had faced a sentence of up to a year in prison and a $4,000 fine. During the trial, prosecutors showed video of the October 2009 incident involving Perez and 22-year-old Whitney Fox. In the footage, Perez handcuffs Fox on suspicion of DWI and then slams her into a wall. Fox required treatment at a hospital for a deep gash on her chin and cuts on her knees. Defense attorneys tried to argue that Fox was not cooperating and resisted arrest. However, Perez’s former DPS supervisor testified that his actions were reckless. Perez resigned before the department could fire him. In March (2010) a grand jury no billed him on official oppression charges .

Johannes Mehserle


June 6, 2010Update

Johannes Mehserle is charged with murder in the case, as prosecutors have argued that he intended to use his gun and shoot Grant. Meanwhile, Rains has argued that his client meant to use his Taser on the resisting Grant but by accident pulled out his gun. "It's not a surprise the motions were granted, but Rains is not necessarily winning," said Darryl Stallworth (Stuart Hing's partner in crime), a former Alameda County deputy district attorney (who's a criminal just like Judge Hing and Mehserle) who now has his own criminal defense firm. While the rulings could give the jury a reason why Mehserle thought he needed to use force on Grant, the evidence presented will not discount the videos that clearly show Mehserle firing his gun into the back of an unarmed and prone Grant, the attorneys said.

Stallworth said he was not surprised that Perry allowed some of Grant's past criminal history to be presented to the jury and said it's not a certainty that the jury will believe the testimony of the defense's video expert. "Sometimes, an expert on the other side might end up helping your side," Stallworth said. "It all depends on how it is presented to the jury."

For example, Cardoza said, the jury could discount everything the expert said because he is hired by the defense to give analysis. "It depends on how the jury views the expert," Cardoza said. "To them, he could be just a hired gun coming into court to say what the defense wants him to say."

At this point, the attorneys and a jury consultant said, the important task for both deputy district attorney David Stein and Rains is to pick a jury that they believe will help them win the case. For Stein, that jury needs to be liberal and believe that police officers make mistakes, the attorneys and jury consultant said. For Rains, the jury needs to have a full trust in law enforcement, they said.

"If I was the prosecution, I would be asking people who are liberal and minorities to serve," said Howard Varinsky, an Emeryville jury consultant who has worked on a number of high-profile cases. "I would want to try to rehabilitate them and convince them that they can put their beliefs aside and be fair." Cardoza said having the case in Los Angeles will allow the prosecution to find the type of jurors it wants. "You want people who have interacted with the police before," Cardoza said. "That is why Los Angeles is a good venue for the prosecution."

Stein and Rains have spent the last three days looking through roughly 100 jury questionnaires that were given to potential jurors last week. Both will return to court Tuesday to begin asking for probative questions of the 100 residents who filled out the questionnaires before selecting 18 to serve as either the 12 members of the jury or six alternates. In looking through those questionnaires, both Stein and Rains will learn many details of each resident's life and personal beliefs, ranging from their job and education to their thoughts on gun control. Varinsky said Stein will have to pick jurors he is usually not accustomed to working with.

"The prosecution usually doesn't want minorities, as a general rule of thumb, and they don't want liberals either," he said. "They are usually fearful of those groups because the minorities might have thoughts about law enforcement from actual life experiences and the liberals are always going for the little guy." Perry has said he hopes to have a jury seated by Wednesday and have opening statements begin Thursday morning.

September 11, 2009

OAKLAND — Former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle will have to stand before a jury on a murder charge, a judge ruled Thursday, rejecting arguments from Mehserle's attorney that a previous judge erred when ruling that enough evidence was presented to push the case to a full trial. "For purposes of the preliminary hearing, the question is whether a strong suspicion of guilt exists, not whether all doubt as to guilt is eliminated," Alameda County Superior Court Judge Thomas Reardon wrote. "The magistrate's factual finding that defendant knowingly fired his gun is supported by the evidence presented."

Mehserle's attorney, Michael Rains, has argued that Mehserle (pictured left in handcuffs and leg irons) intended to use his Taser against Grant but pulled his gun by mistake. "(The Taser) is bright yellow and looks nothing like his service weapon," Reardon wrote. Even without witness testimony, Reardon ruled, enough evidence was presented through videos to push the case to a jury trial. "The video (see below) shows the defendant using his right hand to withdraw his service weapon at the right hip; it does not show him using his left hand to withdraw the Taser at his left hip, nor does sit show him using (his) right hand to cross his body to withdraw the taser," Reardon wrote. "Also, the video shows the officer looking down at the weapon as he tries to remove if from its holster and shows the officer extending the weapon in front of him before firing."


The Jan. 1, 2009 Murder




See: Captain Edward Poulson, OPD(Beating Death of Suspect (2000) Promoted in 2008)



June 4, 2009

OAKLAND — Former BART police Officer Johannes Mehserle must stand trial for murder in the death of Oscar Grant III, a judge declared Thursday, saying evidence presented during seven days of hearings convinced him the shooting was intentional. Grant, of Hayward, was killed during the early hours of Jan. 1 as he lay prone on the Fruitvale BART station platform with at least one arm behind his back and another officer's knee on his neck. The shooting was captured by at least a half-dozen passengers who began recording the actions of BART police officers with cell phone cameras and digital cameras because many said they believed the officers were abusing their authority.

That lack of statement from Mehserle played a role in the decision to push the case of murder to a jury, Clay said. While at least one other officer said he heard Mehserle announce his intention to Tase Grant, Clay said no one can say for sure what the 27-year-old was thinking. Without a statement from Mehserle, Clay said, the defense that it was a mistake could not be validated. But without a statement from Mehserle, Clay said he could conclude only that the former officer intended to kill Grant, especially given what another officer testified he heard Mehserle say before and after the killing. Officer Tony Pirone testified that he heard Mehserle caution him that he was going to Tase Grant before the shot fired. But after the shooting, Pirone said Mehserle told him that he thought Grant was going for a gun. Clay said those two statements were "inconsistent." If Mehserle thought Grant was going for a gun, then he is trained to respond in kind.

Clay also questioned the testimony of other BART officers as well, appearing to agree with Deputy District Attorney David Stein that their testimony exaggerated the situation on the platform in hopes of justifying their actions. And he said the BART officers who responded to the scene made matters worse by the way they treated Grant and his friends. At one point, Clay compared the BART officers to Oakland police and said if Oakland police handled the situation it would not have become as "elevated."

Clay's ruling came about a half-hour after he denied requests by Rains to continue the preliminary hearing and demanded the defense attorney end his case immediately. Clay said that the witnesses Rains wanted to call brought no relevance to the case and that the video expert he had on the witness stand had already said everything that pertained to the shooting.

"We realize that this case is not over but we are certain we will get justice whether it be God's justice or man's justice," said Cephus Johnson, Grant's uncle. "This was no accident, my nephew; my sister's son was murdered." Wanda Johnson, Grant's mother, said she was hurt and saddened by the entire incident but said she hopes the upcoming trial will prove police officers must be sensitive when responding to situations. Johnson also called on BART to take action against some of the officers who responded to the scene on New Year's Day. "BART needs to take a stand. Something needs to be done," she said.

Mehserle (pictured above left in handcuffs and leg irons) quit the BART police force shortly after the killing to avoid giving a statement to investigators and was arrested Jan. 13 in Nevada. His defense attorney chose not to have his client take the witness stand during the preliminary hearing.

"There is no doubt in my mind that Mr. Mehserle intended to shoot Oscar Grant with a gun and not a Taser," Alameda County Superior Court Judge C. Don Clay said. "These young men did nothing to warrant the use of deadly force."

"This case is really not about the videotapes. It boils down to the state of mind of Mr. Mehserle," Clay said. "It is clear Mr. Mehserle shot Oscar Grant. It is clear Oscar Grant was unarmed. "This argument is totally dependent on what the defendant's state of mind was "... the defendant didn't give a statement," Clay continued. "If I heard directly from the defendant, maybe I could draw these conclusions."

Cold Case Detective
Stephanie Ilene Lazarus

Case Closed!

Posted: Posted on: May 11, 2012 - updated on: 11:21 pm, May 11, 2012



LOS ANGELES, CA — A former Los Angeles police detective was sentenced Friday to 27 years to life in prison for murdering the wife of her former lover 26 years ago. Superior Court Judge Robert Perry gave Stephanie Lazarus (pictured above, center) a term of 25 years to life for first-degree murder and an additional two years for personal use of a firearm. He said Lazarus would be credited with 1,000 days for good behavior and time already served. Her defense attorney said an appeal has been filed.

Lazarus, 52, was found guilty in March of killing Sherri Rasmussen, a nurse who was bludgeoned and shot to death in the condo she shared with her husband of three months, John Ruetten. Ruetten told the judge he still grieves. “The fact that Sherri’s death occurred because she met and married me, brings me to my knees,” he said. “I do not know … how to cope with this appalling fact.” Rasmussen’s mother, sister and widower spoke during the sentencing hearing about their pain and described the victim as a warm, caring and loving person.

Outside court, Lazarus’ brother and mother said their hearts go out to Rasmussen’s family, but they still support Lazarus and believe she did not get a fair trial. “There was never a presumption of innocence,” said Steve Lazarus. “The media got to listen to DNA and guilt for 2 1/2 years before Stephanie had her trial.” Prosecutors suggested Lazarus knew to avoid leaving other evidence such as fingerprints. The idea that saliva from a bite mark could be her undoing was inconceivable in 1986 when DNA wasn’t used as a forensic tool. Lazarus rose in the ranks of the Los Angeles Police Department, becoming a detective in charge of art forgeries and thefts. Her husband attended most of the trial, along with other family members. The Rasmussen family has filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against the LAPD and the city of Los Angeles.

LAPD JUICE!


Posted: 03/08/2012 05:19:31 PM EST - Updated: 03/08/2012 03:59:44 PM PST

OAKLAND, CA (WCJB) - A former Los Angeles police detective, Stephanie Lazarus, was found guilty Thursday in the 1986 murder of the wife of her former lover, John Ruetten. Victim Sherri Rasmussen was bludgeoned and shot to death in 1986 in the condo she shared with her husband of three months. Detectives initially believed two robbers who had attacked another woman in the area were to blame. But two decades later, a cold case team using DNA analysis concluded the killer was a woman and authorities began looking at Lazarus as a suspect. The first-degree murder conviction of Lazarus (pictured below, center) came after a three-week trial where the key evidence was DNA from a bite mark on the victim's arm. The case was submitted to jurors on Tuesday after intense closing arguments by both sides.



The jury heard testimony from a forensic expert who said the DNA was a match to Lazarus. Her defense attorney countered that the DNA was packaged improperly and deteriorated while stored in a coroner's freezer for two decades. He also suggested there might have been evidence tampering. Prosecutor Shannon Presby told jurors the case was based on more than just DNA. At the outset of the trial, he said it featured "a bite, a bullet, a gun barrel and a broken heart." Lazarus' gun was never found, but Presby called experts to testify that bullets fired into Rasmussen's body matched those issued to police officers in 1986.

During the trial, prosecutors focused on the relationship of Lazarus and Ruetten, who became her lover after they graduated from college. Ruetten testified that he never intended to marry Lazarus, although they were intimate for about a year. He also said she enticed him into having sex with her shortly before his wedding. "Here's the deal," he testified. "It was clear she was very upset that I was getting married and moving on." Lazarus went on to marry another policeman and adopt a daughter. She rose in the ranks of the Los Angeles Police Department, becoming a detective in charge of art forgeries and thefts.

LOS ANGELES, CA — The defense rested Tuesday in the love-triangle murder trial of former Los Angeles police detective Stephanie Lazarus (pictured above, right-standing) a case dating back 26 years. Sherri Rae Rasmussen (pictured above, left-thumb) was found shot and bludgeoned to death in her condo on Feb. 24, 1986. She and John Ruetten had been married for three months. Prosecutors claim Lazarus killed her in a jealous rage over Ruetten. Ruetten had been Lazarus’ boyfriend before he married the Sherri Rae. Prosecutors have pinned their case on a (DNA) sample of saliva taken from a bite mark on the arm of victim in 1986. The evidence sat dormant until DNA analysis was done nearly 30 years later, first showing a woman was involved then linking it to Lazarus. Lazarus, 51, has pleaded not guilty. She did not testify in her own defense. In the last moments before he rested his case, her attorney put his arm around her and the two whispered. “Your honor, Ms. Lazarus rests,” he then told Superior Court Judge Robert Perry.

The courtroom was filled with spectators, including Rasmussen’s widower Ruetten. His tearful testimony about her murder was a dramatic point of the trial.

Lazarus’ lawyer ended his two-day presentation focusing on three letters that have defined the case — DNA. He suggested in questioning a witness that critical genetic evidence linking Lazarus to the murder of her romantic rival, Rasmussen was mishandled in an era before the value of DNA was known. Lazarus’ attorney, who conducted aggressive cross-examination of prosecution experts during the three-week trial, is expected to tell jurors in final arguments that the DNA sample was contaminated during the many years it was rolling around in a box in the cold case section of the police robbery-homicide division.

Lazarus’ attorney called homicide detective James Nuttall as one of his final witnesses. He was assigned to the Rasmussen murder in 2009 and case documents were transferred to him in the Van Nuys section of the Los Angeles Police Department. But he acknowledged that one piece of evidence did not reach him — the envelope containing saliva swabs from the bite mark. He identified an inventory list and said, “It appears it never made the transfer list. It should have transferred to Van Nuys and it didn’t.” After a brief court break, Nuttall said the missing piece of evidence was eventually located. Prosecutor Paul Nunez pointed out that it had already been analyzed for DNA by a forensic expert.

The judge refused to allow testimony from Jeffrey Alden Thompson, a former assistant director of the police scientific investigation division who testified outside the jury’s presence about ways in which DNA can be contaminated. He faulted those who worked on the Lazarus case for failing to write down everything they did. Judge Perry said, “I don’t think it necessarily shows the lab was deficient. They just weren’t recording it.” He also said the director did not do the work on the case.

Final arguments were scheduled for Monday, March 5, 2012.

Los Angeles, CA -- Prosecutors in the murder trial of retired Los Angeles Police Department Det. Stephanie Lazarus rested their case Friday after three weeks. Lazarus, a 25-year veteran of the LAPD who retired after her 2009 arrest, is accused of the Feb. 24, 1986, beating and shooting death of Sherri Rasmussen a 29-year-old nurse who married a man Lazarus had dated. Trial testimony included that of a former FBI criminal profiler who said the killer staged part of the crime scene in an effort to throw off investigators. The prosecution's case hinges heavily on saliva extracted from a bite mark on Sherri's arm. Experts have testified that DNA tests on the saliva prove it came from Lazarus (One last highlight from the Friday morning session; an independent lab tested the DNA from the bite mark. The prosecution’s expert told the jury there was a 1 in 1.7 sextillion chance the DNA came from someone other than Stephanie Lazarus. That’s based on the population of planet earth being 240 billion (current earth population: 7 Billion).). After grinding through weeks of detailed testimony that focused largely on DNA and other forensic evidence, prosecutors called their final witnesses on what happened to be the 26th anniversary of the killing. One of the last to take the witness stand was Mark Safarik, who spent years profiling criminals for the FBI. Prosecutors hired Safarik, who now operates a consulting firm, to analyze evidence from the crime scene.


Lazarus’ Videotaped Interrogation!




(On Tuesday morning, jurors watched the rest of Stephanie Lazarus’ videotaped interrogation. Detectives press Lazarus on whether she ever violently confronted the victim, Sherri Rasmussen at her townhouse in Los Angeles. “Did you ever duke it out with her?” she’s asked. “I don’t think so,” answers Lazarus. “That’s not sounding familiar to me at all.”

On the tape Lazarus becomes increasingly agitated. She can feel the eyes of suspicion on her. “So I fought with her so I must have killed her? That’s insane,” she tells detectives.

It isn’t long before Lazarus knows she’s got to protect herself. “If you guys are claiming I am a suspect, I’ve got a problem with that.” Within minutes, she gets up to leave. What Lazarus doesn’t know is that four other detectives are waiting outside in the hallway to arrest her. Stephanie Lazarus, the once exemplary cop, is now in cuffs.

Prosecutors allege that Lazarus, 51 — who was 26 at the time of the killing and had joined the LAPD a few years earlier — was infatuated with John Ruetten, now 53, and driven to kill by the jealousy she felt over his decision to marry someone else. Despite repeated pleas by Sherri Rasmussen's father to police, Lazarus was not considered a suspect at the time of the killing. Rasmussen was discovered beaten and bloodied on the floor of the Van Nuys town house she shared with her new husband. She had been shot three times in the chest at close range and there was a human bite mark on one arm. Her head had been bludgeoned. Wounds on her wrists and cords on the floor indicated that she had been tied up. A thick quilt with bullet holes in it lay nearby. With Rasmussen's BMW missing and electronic equipment stacked on the floor of her home, the lead detective in the case theorized at the time that she had been killed when she came upon a burglar.

Safarik refuted that idea, saying he believed the killer had attempted to make the crime scene look like an interrupted burglary in order to confuse investigators. Safarik said Rasmussen's town house, with its alarm company sign on the door and position in clear view of other homes, was not a likely target for a burglar. Also, he said, the intruder or intruders had not ransacked any part of the town house in search of valuables and had moved only two pieces of stereo equipment from a console that included several other pieces. The decision to take the BMW, but not to fill it first with things from the house or to strip it down afterward of its valuable parts, also pointed to a faked burglary, Safarik said. "What I saw was an attempt to create an illusion," he said.

Lazarus' attorney sparred strenuously with Safarik, trying to get him to admit his theory was based on unprovable assumptions of what had occurred. Lazarus' attorney has indicated that when he begins his defense of Lazarus on Monday, he will try in part to convince jurors that the original burglary theory is a credible alternative to the story prosecutors want the jury to believe.

She became a focus of the investigation in 2009, when detectives reopened the case and interviewed family members, who mentioned the suspicions they had harbored for over two decades. A highly secretive four-month investigation ensued and culminated with undercover officers following Lazarus for weeks. The officers eventually snatched a cup from which Lazarus had been drinking after she threw it away and used it to compare her saliva to the sample from the bite. Lazarus has pleaded not guilty and has remained in custody on $10-million bail during the 2 1/2 years since her arrest.

L.A.P.D. Cover-up?


Los Angeles, CA - On Feb. 24, 1986, Sherri Rasmussen's new husband came home to their Van Nuys condominium to find his wife's badly beaten body. Rasmussen, a 29-year old nursing director, had been shot several times, and her car was missing.

Although Rasmussen’s father urged authorities to look at a female LAPD officer, his son-in-law's ex-girlfriend, in connection with the brutal killing, investigators failed to follow the lead, believing Rasmussen was a victim of a robbery.

The homicide investigation remained unresolved for 23 years until cold case detectives examined evidence once again, including DNA, and were able to find their lead suspect: LAPD Det. Stephanie Lazarus.

December 19, 2009Update!

A judge Friday set bail at $10 million for a veteran Los Angeles police detective (pictured above) accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend's wife in Van Nuys more than 23 years ago. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert J. Perry cited the "strength of the prosecution's" case against Stephanie Ilene Lazarus, saying the "evidence of the defendant's participation in the killing of Sherri Rasmussen is compelling" and that there is an "obvious and clear incentive for the defendant to flee." The judge noted that Lazarus is "undoubtedly aware" that she would spend the rest of her life in prison, adding the "probability of her not appearing at trial is a near certainty."

The 49-year-old woman had been jailed without bail following her June 5 arrest for the Feb. 24, 1986, slaying of Rasmussen, a 29-year-old Glendale Adventist Medical Center nursing supervisor who was shot three times in the chest and badly beaten in her Van Nuys townhome. The judge ruled Dec. 10 there was sufficient evidence to require Lazarus to proceed to trial on the murder charge. But he determined there was "insufficient" evidence to support two special circumstance allegations -- murder while lying in wait and murder during the commission of a burglary -- under which a defendant can be held without bail (the judge is kidding).

Lazarus' attorney had been asking the judge to set bail at an amount between $300,000and $500,000, while the prosecution was asking for $5 million bail. Without the special circumstance allegations that could carry a possible death sentence, Lazarus is facing a maximum 27-year-to-life term on the murder charge and a gun use allegation. Lazarus had been a police officer for two years at the time of the slaying and been on the force for 25 years when she was arrested at the police department's downtown Los Angeles headquarters.

Lazarus -- who is married to a fellow LAPD detective and has an adopted 3-year-old daughter -- was charged June 8 with the murder charge, and was ordered the following month to give a dental impression that prosecutors sought to compare to an apparent bite mark on the victim's arm. A Los Angeles Police Department criminalist who examined a DNA sample from Lazarus and DNA from the mark on the victim's arm testified last week that they matched.

December 7, 2009Update!

LOS ANGELES -- Prosecutors have begun presenting their case against a veteran Los Angeles police detective accused in the 1986 killing of her ex-boyfriend's wife. Stephanie Lazarous, 49, (pictured left) is accused of shooting, Sherri Rasmussen, a hospital nursing director, more than 23 years ago. Lazarus dated the victim's husband, John Ruetten, for several years before the marriage, officials said. Lazarus was actually mentioned in the original case file because of her involvement with the victim's husband. She had reportedly threatened Rasmussen at the hospital where she worked and at her home. The 25-year police veteran, who handled art forgery cases, pleaded not guilty to capital murder in May. Superior Court Judge Robert Perry refused to dismiss the case against Lazarus ruling that her right to a fair trial were not violated.

During the first day of testimony for Lazarus' preliminary hearing, a former criminalist from the L.A. County Office of the Coroner testified he responded to the bloody crime scene and collected a saliva sample from a bite mark on Rasmussen. Prosecutors say the case against Lazarus focuses on a key piece of evidence: saliva collected from a bite mark left on the victim. Authorities say that DNA sample links Lazarus to the murder.

Rasmussen's body was found by her husband in the living room of their Van Nuys condominium on Feb. 24, 1986. Investigators say she had been shot three times with a .38-caliber gun, bitten and badly beaten. Police say Lazarus reported her personal .38-caliber revolver stolen from her car in Santa Monica shortly after the fatal shooting. Lazarus stated that her pistol -- which was the same caliber as the one used to kill Rasmussen -- was stolen out of her car while it was parked in Second Street. The gun was never found. Santa Monica police acknowledged the theft report, but declined to make it public, citing the ongoing murder investigation. Lazarus worked patrol duty in the San Fernando Valley when she joined the force. She was later promoted to detective and since 2006 has worked in a unit that tracks stolen art, according to police records.

The murder charge against her includes the special circumstance allegation of murder during the commission of a burglary. Lazarus also faces a separate allegation of personal use of a handgun. She was arrested June 5, 2009 by detectives who worked across the hall from her. She has remained in custody ever since. If convicted, she could face the death penalty.

June 5, 2009

A [v]eteran Los Angeles Police Department detective was arrested today in connection with the 1986 slaying of her ex-boyfriend's wife. [Detective] Stephanie Ilene Lazarus, 49, was arrested this morning at 8 while working at Parker Center, the LAPD's downtown headquarters. Police allege that Lazarus beat and fatally shot Sherri Rae Rasmussen, a hospital nursing director, according to sources familiar with the investigation.

Rasmussen (pictured left) was found badly beaten and shot by her husband in the living room of the couple's Van Nuys condominium on Feb. 24, 1986. Shortly after the slaying, two men robbed another woman in the area at gun point and homicide detectives came to believe the pair had killed Rasmussen when she came upon them burglarizing her home, according to news reports. Rasmussen's parents, newspapers reported, offered a $10,000 reward for the men's capture. The search for the two men led nowhere. Like thousands of other homicides from the period, the case remained open and was left to collect dust on department storage shelves as detectives struggled to keep pace with L.A.'s dramatic surge in murders and violent crimes.



But with homicides in the city falling to historic lows, LAPD detectives have had unusual freedom in recent months to revisit cold cases. Detectives returned to the Rasmussen killing, testing DNA material allegedly left by the killer. The tests showed that it belonged to a woman, disproving the theory that the victim had been killed by a man.

The original case file, Beck said, contained a reference to Lazarus , who was known at the time to have had a romantic relationship with the victim's husband, John Ruetten. When suspicion fell on an LAPD cop, the case took on sensitive and explosive tones inside the LAPD. Only a small circle of detectives and high-ranking officials were made aware of the investigation, in order to minimize the chances that word would leak to Lazarus that the Rasmussen case had been reopened.

Last week, undercover officers surreptitiously trailed Lazarus as she did errands one day, waiting until she discarded a coffee cup, straw or something else with her saliva on it, Beck said. Her saliva sample was sent to a lab for comparison with DNA evidence Rasmussen's killer left at the crime scene. The genetic code in the two samples matched conclusively, police allege.

Lazarus was not pursued as a suspect at the time of Rasmussen's slaying, police said. There is no indication that any other active or retired LAPD officer knew about Lazarus's alleged role in the killing, Beck said. Lazarus joined the department in 1983, LAPD records show. After several years as a rank-and-file patrol officer in the San Fernando Valley, she was promoted to detective and, in 2006, won a high-profile assignment to a unit dedicated to tracking stolen artwork. There are references in department publications to Lazarus earning commendation from the public for her work.

She hardly shunned the spotlight. In a recent LA Weekly article profiling Lazarus and her partner, Don Hrycyk, she joked that all she knew about art was that it "hangs on the wall," and added, "after working here and seeing all the phony art, I said, 'I can do that.' " Lazarus, who has an adopted 5-year-old daughter, according to Beck, told the magazine that she had started taking oil-painting classes and had first become interested in art when she visited Europe as a teenager. Last year, she gave interviews to reporters after helping to capture two men convicted of a string of thefts of bronze statues and sculptures in the Wilshire area and in Beverly Hills.


The Murder


February 24, 1986

An official at Glendale Adventist Medical Center said "an important part of the team" was lost when a key nursing director was shot and killed this week in her Van Nuys apartment. Los Angeles homicide detectives on Wednesday were searching for suspects in the Monday morning death of Sherri Rae Rasmussen, 29. Police said they believe Rasmussen was killed when she surprised one or more intruders who beat her and shot her once before stealing her car. Investigators also were searching for the car, a silver two-door, 1985 BMW 318i with the license plate 1MJK850. The body was discovered by her husband, John, when he returned home from work about 6 p.m. Monday, police said. The couple had been married three months, according to hospital officials. Hospital spokesman Ken Rozell said Rasmussen had taken a day off work because she had injured her back while doing aerobic exercises. Rasmussen had been director of nursing of the hospital's 150-bed critical care and surgical units for two years. Althea Kennedy, vice president of nursing, said: "I can't imagine not working with her. She was such an important part of the team."
