    Video, " twists and turns in the investigation "

    "This is horrifying, it's very horrifying," said Eric Walker, a Woodland Hills resident. "It makes you want more protection for yourself, cause usually around here we walk, everybody walks."

    Anyone with information about the crime was asked to call Det. Steve Castro of the Los Angeles Police Department's Valley Bureau Homicide division at 818-374-1925.

    Please be careful!
    Beloved hairstylist, known as 'Big Daddy' found stabbed and beaten to death in his upscale Los Angeles home


    • Fabio Sementilli, 49, was found stabbed and beaten in his Los Angeles home
    • He was a professional hairstylist and international executive to hair companies
    • His wife and daughters found him on their patio on Monday evening
    • His 2008 Porsche Carrerra 911 was also stolen and used as a getaway car

    The neighborhood has reportedly experienced a number of burglaries recently, but police are investigating whether the homicide was directly targeted at Sementilli, according to CBS LA.

    Sementilli, known lovingly as 'Big Daddy' was known for his love of family and mentoring, and has been mourned by his industry following his sudden death.



    On Friday, he celebrated the 30 year anniversary of being certified as a hairstylist

    Hills in the Valley have been being robbed seemingly more and more lately.

    I havent seen them mention if his house was actually robbed. I do see they say he had security cameras

    Sounds like he was targeted. Hopefully the surveillance video at the home will provide some answers.

    Not sure if a house being " ransacked " is the same as getting robbed, but they did steal the car..

    Fox is reporting that the home was ransacked

    Sadly, Fabio is a friends cousin. The family is devastated of course. So sad.

    ETA: just say dotr already mention the Fox article. I guess they were either robbing him blind or looking for something maybe?

    So sorry to hear of Fabio's murder and your close connection to him dumpater. It's surprising to me that an area covered with so many cameras has been plagued by so many robberies & burglaries. Hopefully the CCTV will help LE locate the perp(s) asap.

    In the world of high-end hairstyling, Fabio Sementilli was a rock star.
    A gregarious father of three, the former Toronto resident was found murdered by his wife, Monica, and one of his daughters outside his home in a Los Angeles-area gated community.
    •Cops say Sementilli was beaten and stabbed in the neck and torso.

    •His 2008 black Porsche Carrera was missing
    •Detectives say there are no suspects but they’re searching for two men.
    Born in Italy, Sementilli, 49, grew up in Toronto and maintained close ties to the city.
    Joey DeVilla, who went to school with Sementilli in the 1980s at De La Salle College in the Avenue Rd.-St. Clair Ave. area, told the Toronto Sun his friend ditched school in Grade 12 to become a styling superstar.

    Detectives did not immediately provide a possible motive, but friends and family said 49-year-old Sementilli walked in on a home invasion in the upscale Woodland Hills neighbourhood.

    “I don’t doubt for a second in my mind that he wouldn’t have let these people invade his home without defending his honour, defending his family,” said his 24-year-old son.

    Missing Porsche belonging to murdered celebrity hairdresser is found 24 hours after his death

    "'I don't want to characterize the type of evidence but we have a good chance of identifying the suspect,' officials added."
