    I didn't see this posted yet.

    A woman was stabbed to death in her car parked at the Promenade Mall in upscale Rolling Hills Estates on May 3rd. A transient was arrested and later released. The police have now announced an arrest and will reveal the details in a press conference tomorrow. A shocking crime in one of the safest cities anywhere.

    The suspect is a woman (didn't get the name, am looking for it now). She is in jail on $1 million bail. TV cut away immediately after the sheriff's opening statement, to cover the Texas school shooting.

    Motive was robbery. The victim was selected at random. Suspect and victim did not know each other.
    Investigation is extensive and ongoing, so they're releasing very little information at this time. LE is asking for possible witnesses to contact them and they're processing a lot of evidence, videos, etc.

    Cherie Townsend, 38 (or 39) years old, arrested yesterday in Victorville, CA.

    No photo. Police are withholding everything about her except her name. The investigation is very much active.

    Thanks for starting this thread. I live in the area and was in fact at the other end of the parking garage of that very day.
    This brutal murder has shocked our community.

    I never believed the homeless guy was involved other than having been wandering in the area, due to his being on foot. I'm glad that the police now have an arrest....it is so tragic and senseless. The victim was a lovely woman.

    A little more info on the suspected killer of Susan Leeds.

    https://www.sgvtribune.com/2018/05/18/suspect-arrested-in-rolling-hills-estates-slaying/

    Police are asking anyone who may have been in the parking garage from 9:30 am that morning to contact them if they saw anything unusual or have any other information relating to this crime. The suspect's vehicle information was also released to the public.

    This was the first murder in Rolling Hills Estates in nine years.
