Luncheon at the Tam O’Shanter (Los Angeles, CA) — Cold Case Investigation! The Colder the Case, the Hotter the Story.

Cold Case Investigation! The Colder the Case, the Hotter the Story.

In 1986, newlywed Sherri Rasmussen was murdered in her home. The Los Angeles Police Department presumed two scenarios: 1) her husband did it, or 2) intruders did it. Husbands are often the perpetrators of spousal murders. Yet, there had been an uptick of residential burglaries in the Rasmussen neighborhood. Despite a thorough investigation no suspect was arrested and the case remained open, unsolved for 23 years. 

In February 2009, Detective Robert Bub, Officer in Charge of the Van Nuys Cold Case Homicide Unit, directed detectives to re-examine the case. Immediately, one detail in the murder book sparked to life: DNA testing determined that the suspected killer…was a woman. A vigorous reworking of the case would lead detectives to a suspect that would shock the LAPD.

Author Terri Nolan interviews the investigators who dug deep. Join us November 4th for an insider look into how the LAPD finally got justice for Sherri Rasmussen and the secret investigation that captured one of their own.

RSVPs will open in early October.
