The Daily Beast reports:
In a rundown apartment house, located in a bleak part of Hollywood, the mystery of Ronni Chasen’s murder deepened Wednesday night when a man police say they believe was connected to the publicist’s killing shot himself around 5:30 p.m., as officers got ready to serve a search warrant.

The Los Angeles Times reported that the man had told another resident that he was a former convict, who had served time in a state prison.
How the man might be linked to Chasen’s murder is not yet clear.
Tony Lee of the Beverly Hills Police Department described him as a “person of interest” only, and corrected himself when he used the word “suspect.” He added that the Chasen “investigation is ongoing.”
