Woman Pregnant with Twins Murdered in Venice
A suspect has been arrested in connection to a Tuesday night murder that left a woman and her unborn twins dead. Around 10 p.m., officers were called to a home on the 1600 block of Electric Avenue--just one block from Abbott Kinney--when they saw a possible suspect running from the location. Boneetio Kentro Washington, 22, of Culver City was then arrested and is now thought to be connected to other sexual crimes on the Westside. When officers entered the home, they found a 39-year-old pregnant woman suffering from multiple stab wounds. She was transported to the hospital where she died.
"According to KTLA News, the woman may have been taking groceries to and from her car at the time she was attacked," noted the LA Times. "A neighbor -- possibly the landlord of the duplex -- saw the suspect go into the woman's apartment and called police, who arrested the suspect as he was leaving the apartment."
Anyone with information on this crime is asked to call Pacific Homicide Detectives Luis Carranza or Joe Lumbreras at (310) 482-6313. Callers can also phone the 24-hour number at 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (527-3247). Tipsters may text “crimes” with a cell phone. All messages should begin with “LAPD.” Tipsters may remain anonymous.
