A new tip has renewed the investigation into the unsolved murder of an attorney in Rolling Hills Estates in 2009.
Jeffrey Tidus was 53-years-old when he was killed in the driveway of his home, and until recently, detectives had said they’d exhausted every lead.
“Recently we’ve had several people come forward with information that’s rekindled the investigation,” L.A. County Sheriff’s Department Homicide Bureau Lt. Victor Lewandowski said at a news conference with Tidus’ family Wednesday.
“We feel that his murder is related to one of the numerous civil actions and civil lawsuits that he’s been involved in over the years,” he said. “It’s our belief that there are people that are out there who know about this murder, and who know the identity of the suspect or suspects.”
Tidus was shot in the back of the head on December 7, 2009 when Tidus stepped out of his home on Sugarhill Drive to get his computer from his car – that was parked in the driveway.
“We deserve answers,” said Tidus’ widow Cheryl.
“We all deserve to know what went on, why,” she said, surrounded by family, who have added $90,000 to the $10,000 reward offered by L.A. County.
Anyone with information was asked to call Detectives Espino or Kenney at the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500.
