$50K Reward Offered in November NoHo Murder
Councilmember Tom LaBonge has sought City Council approval for a $50,000 reward in the case of Jong Kim, a business man who was shot and killed outside his North Hollywood home late last year.
Kim was gunned down on his way to his home on Chiquita Street near Lankershim Boulevard on November 18th, 2010. Troubling his family, associates, and detectives is the lack of motive for the crime. According to LaBonge's office, "LAPD Detectives don’t believe robbery was the motive because Mr. Kim had $3,000 in his pocket when he was gunned-down."
The LAPD also have no suspects in this murder case. Today stills from surveillance video of the suspect's vehicle, taken at the time of the crime, have been released. "Anyone that would murder a man in front of his home is an ongoing threat to the safety of the citizens of Los Angeles and must be apprehended," adds the statement issued by LaBonge's office.
