CRIME: In and Around the Palisades

(Editor’s note: In addition to Palisades Senior Lead Officer Brian Espin’s Crime Report this week, CTN is reprinting a story that ran in the February 11 edition of the Westside Current.)

This is one of many RVs in the City. This is not the RV that the dead woman was found in.

LAPD Discovers Woman’s Body in RV Near LAX Following Canadian Man’s Confession

A Canadian man surrendered to the Los Angeles Police Department on February 9, confessing to the killing of his partner. He claimed the act was in self-defense after she allegedly threatened him with a knife.

Following his confession, police were directed to an RV parked near the Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), where they discovered the woman’s body, which had significantly decomposed. The vehicle was immediately seized for a thorough investigation.

The couple, originally from Canada, had been living in the RV. The exact details leading to the fatal confrontation are currently under investigation.
