Detectives at the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Homicide Bureau are investigating the murders of Joseph Telles, Sr. and his son Joseph, Jr., two months later.
Joseph Sr. was murdered on Friday morning, August 24, 2012 after he went on a test drive with a young man who wanted to purchase his blue, 1995 Chevrolet Suburban. The Suburban with Joseph Sr.'s body in it was found around noon on Placid Drive in south (unincorporated) Whittier, near the victim's home.
On Friday night, October 26, 2012, Joseph, Jr. was murdered in the front yard of the home he had shared with his father until his murder two months earlier.
Investigators believe that the two murders may be connected.
If you have any information about either murder, Detectives Steve Rubino and Phil Guzman would like to speak with you, even if it is anonymously. They can be reached at 323.890.5500.
There is a $10,000 reward offered by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors.
