Some specifics regarding the shooting death of Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen lend detail to the case, however authorities in Beverly Hills have not publicly identified a suspect or motive, as media speculation continues to surge.Our local Fox affiliate aired a report in which they said they'd obtained a report from the Los Angeles County coroner's office which included details about the number and location of Chasen's gunshot wounds, as reported by Beverly Hills Patch. The report allegedly confirmed that the victim had been shot at from the passenger side of her Mercedes Benz from another vehicle while she was on Sunset Boulevard.

However, the legitimacy of this coroner's report is questionable: "Coroner's Investigator Jerry McKibben said Assistant Chief Deputy Coroner Ed Winter stated that his department has not released any documents ''on paper' from the Chasen death investigation, according to wire reports," notes Patch.
