LAPD Say They're 'Satisfied' With Results of Ramirez Suspect Lineup
Wednesday night, the Los Angeles Police Department held a suspect identification lineup for witnesses to the beating of Bryan Stow in the Dodger Stadium parking lot. In the lineup was Giovanni Ramirez, the LAPD's prime suspect who is in custody on a parole hold, but who has not been charged with the crime.
The LAPD say that they are "satisfied with the results," which was conducted "following the rules and guidelines established for the procedure."
An unknown number of witnesses identified Ramirez in the lineup, according to wire service reports published by the Daily Breeze.
Now Ramirez has secured the representation of attorney Anthony Brooklier, who echoes earlier assertions by a lawyer hired to represent Ramirez's young daughter that Ramirez wasn't even at the March 31 Dodgers-Giants game. Brooklier told a local TV news reporter: "I just think it's a mistake. He wasn't at the game. I think he's got a tremendous alibi. He is willing to take a police polygraph. I've never had anybody said that to me in almost 40 years that I've been practicing criminal defense."
In fact, yesterday KFI AM 640 said Ramirez was crying in his cell over the matter of mistaken identity.
The LAPD say their detectives will present a case against Ramirez to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office "at the appropriate time." Authorities say they are working on the over 700 leads they have received on the case. The LAPD will hold a press conference today at 10:45 a.m. to provide an update on the Ramirez lineup.
