    CA - Alberd Tersargyan charged in 4 murders, Los Angeles, 2008 & 2010

    LE believes both cases are connected.

    On a fall afternoon in 2008, a 12-year-old girl arrived home from school and discovered her father and 9-year-old sister shot to death inside the family’s Hollywood apartment.
    Eighteen months later, on Friday night, the girl came home to an empty apartment. She got worried when her mother didn’t come home from work, so the girl walked down to the carport looking for her.
    There, she found the body of Karine Hakobyan, 38, slumped in her Honda CRV, with a gunshot wound to the back of the head. On Monday, a team of Los Angeles police detectives were trying to piece together the three killings, which occurred a few blocks from each other in Hollywood’s Little Armenia district.
    Detectives believe the killings are connected but declined to provide more details.

    A woman was shot and killed in the carport of a Hollywood apartment complex more than a year after her husband and young daughter were slain in attacks that police said Monday appeared to be connected.
    Karine Hakobyan, 38, a nursing assistant at Children's Hospital, was found Friday behind the wheel of her Honda CRV with a gunshot wound to the back of her head.
    Detectives investigating the killing of her husband Khachik Safaryan, 43, and their 8-year-old daughter Lucine said there appeared to be a link to the crimes.
    "We're working on a theory that was developed in the previous homicides," police Detective Dan Myers said.
    He did not provide further details but said none of the victims had any criminal associations.

    Thank goodness the 15 year old has been spared, but I wonder why she was?

    Maybe it's because she just wasn't home at the time.
    do not use my posts without my written permission, other than for use contained within quoting on this websleuths site.

    just because you always think someone is hiding in the bushes, doesn't mean that they're not.

    Just stop it, Casey.

    That is my guess too, Laece. That poor girl, I cannot imagine the pain she is in! My heart goes out to her. I hope she has other family to stay with instead of being stuck with strangers.
    Happy New Years

    They were living with her in-laws in their apt., since the murder of her husband and other daughter. Does anyone know what the previous murder theory was that Det. Myers alluded to?

    Wow! Poor girl. Her guardian angel must be working overtime. She is so lucky and blessed to be alive.

    I'm wondering if the younger girl was home sick and they "had" to take her too, as she was a witness....as the older daughter was at school.

    Not me. I will go back and see if there are any old articles from the first murders.

    The LA Times has a section called the Homicide Report. They report every homicide whether it's newsworthy or not. A writer started this years ago because they felt too many cases were overlooked by the media. The below links are from the Homicide Report.

    Khachik Safaryan, 43

    Died Dec. 11, 2008 at 3:35 p.m.

    Lusine Safaryan, 8

    Died Dec. 11, 2008 at 3:30 p.m.

    http://projects.latimes.com/homicide...sine-safaryan/



    Man, daughter shot to death are identified

    The victims are found by another daughter returning home from school. Police have no motive or suspects.
