Cedillo to Offer $50K Reward in Death of Homeless Woman

Los Angeles—Councilmember Cedillo will partner with the LAPD Olympic Division to offer a $50K reward for information leading to the arrest of the person(s) responsible for death of a CD1 resident. On February 19, 2017 at approximately 10:30 am, the Police Department (LAPD) received a call about a person lying motionless on the sidewalk in the 2600 block of West Olympic Boulevard in the Pico-Union neighborhood of CD1. Upon arrival, police officers found the body of 62-year-old Irma Cuevas, a transient known to residents in the area. Ms. Cuevas had been fatally stabbed sometime after 10:00 pm the night before.

Detectives are continuing to investigate this death, and believe a reward may compel members of the public to provide information on the identity of the person responsible for this crime.
