MONTEREY PARK, Calif. (FOX 11)
Homicide detectives with the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department announced new leads in the cold case of a prominent attorney killed execution style.
On December 7, 2009, 53-year-old Jeffrey Tidus was murdered in the driveway of his Rolling Hills Estates home. Detectives say Tidus was attempting to retrieve his work laptop computer from his vehicle, when a gunman came up from behind Jeffrey and shot him once in the head.
"Our detectives have worked tirelessly on this case, but despite efforts, they have yet to identify a suspect in this case," said Lieutenant Victor Lewandowski, while standing next to a wanted poster with the victims picture.
Following the killing, no murder weapon was recovered and the killer is still at large.
"Based on what we have learned so far, the focus is now on the professional side of his life and business and feel that murder is related to one of his civil lawsuits that he has been involved in throughout the years," said Lewandowski.
Wednesday morning his family and friends stood next to homicide detectives as they announced new clues in the case resulting in a $100,000.00 cash reward for information in the case.
"Our message is to anyone with information, this hundred $100,000.00 reward will hopefully encourage them to come forward with information, so that the dirt bag who murdered my brother gets his proper justice," said the victim's brother Michael Tidus.
"Please come forward. We deserve answers, Jeffery deserves justice," said Jeffery's widow Sheryl Tidus.
