Songwriter Diane Warren dedicated her Golden Globe award to her long-time publicist Ronni Chasen, who was shot and killed in the wee hours of November 16 by a lone bicycle-riding gunman, Harold Martin Smith, on Sunset and Whittier after the premiere of Warren's film, Burlesque. Smith later killed himself with the same gun on December 1. Many friends of Chasen's, Warren included, found it tough to accept the Beverly Hills police accounts of the murder. Why was the lone gunman so far away from his own neighborhood, why did he flee the scene without robbing Chasen, 64, and how did those five bullets shatter the glass and kill her?

We may never know the answers, but the police say the ballistics match, they are sure they got their man and the case is closed. May Ronni rest in peace.

    that may have been the gun, but he sure as well wasn't the shooter. BHPD, LAPD, and FBI should've done a better job checking into the suspect's list of KA's.
