    CA - Robert Heiser, 56, murdered in his Gilroy home, 16 Feb 2015


    Robert Joseph Heiser was murdered in his Gilroy house Monday night, and on Wednesday, police detectives were searching for two women in connection to his death.

    Detectives classified the 56-year-old man's death as a homicide. The coroner confirmed his cause of death as blunt force trauma to the head.

    With the investigation now being treated as a homicide, police released images — as well as surveillance footage — of two women seen in East San Jose using Heiser’s credit cards at a convenience store, Espinoza said...

    While investigators did not identify the women as suspects in Heiser’s death, they were looking to contact them as “persons of interest.”

    The women were described as between the ages of 18 and 25, with one wearing a black parka, a black-and-white shirt and black pants and the other wearing a blue polo shirt and blue basketball shorts, police said.

    OT sorta - most of the comments at this link (http://www.sfgate.com/crime/article/...to-6088581.php) discuss the weight of these women. Just an OT wow. Not much compassion for the victim at all, just a free-for-all bully session IMO.

    In Gilroy’s first murder of 2015, police have charged a San Jose woman, 19, with the Feb. 16 killing of Robert Heiser, 56, in his home and are hunting for a 17-year-old girl they believe was one of as many as three accomplices.

    Gabriela Bernice Ortiz was arrested and booked into Santa Clara County Jail Feb. 20 on homicide and robbery charges. She is scheduled for a March 3 arraignment in Santa Clara County Superior Court in Morgan Hill.

    Gilroy police also are seeking an arrest warrant on homicide and robbery charges for Isabella Aurora Chaidez, 17, of San Jose in connection with the homicide, a department spokesman confirmed Wednesday after court documents naming the teen were obtained by the Dispatch.

    Police also are looking into whether the Gilroy murder might be connected to a similar case in Fremont in which the victim was robbed and beaten unconscious but survived and gave police a photo of a woman involved in his attack.

    San Jose resident Rodrigo Bejarano, 22, was in custody on another matter Tuesday when he was identified as a suspect in the death of 56-year-old Robert Heiser, said Gilroy Sgt. Pedro Espinoza. Bejarano is one of two suspects currently in custody on suspicion of killing Heiser...

    A third suspect, 17-year-old Isabella Chaidez, is still at large, Espinoza added.

    Investigators also suspect Ortiz "may have participated in other similar crimes in other Bay Area cities," according to a news release.

    A third suspect has been arrested and a fourth is still being sought in connection with the slaying of a man in Gilroy, police said Thursday.

    Gerardo Cisneros, 20, of San Jose was already in custody on an unrelated matter in Alameda County when he was arrested on suspicion of murder in the slaying of 56-year-old Robert Joseph Heiser...

    The second person seen in the footage, Isabella Chaidez, 17, of San Jose is still being sought, police said.

    Just some more info on other crimes from this group...

    Chaidez matches the description of a suspected prostitute who goes by the name of “Krissy” and is wanted in connection with a Feb. 7 robbery and assault of a client at his Fremont home, Fremont police said.

    The victim in the case initially contacted “Krissy” on a prostitution website and picked her up in San Jose before bringing her to his home, Fremont Police Department spokesperson Geneva Bosques said. After sipping on a drink he believes was drugged, the man passed out, according to Fremont police.

    When he awoke, he was tied up and surrounded by an unknown number of men asking where his valuables were located, Bosques said.

    “They began to beat him in the head with their fists and he went unconscious. He woke up and they were gone,” she said.

    That guy is lucky he is alive.
