$50,000 Reward for Information about Guillermo Carmona-Perez Murder

City Councilmember Mike Bonin will announce a $50,000 reward on Friday morning at City Hall for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or people responsible for the murder of 24-year old Guillermo Carmona-Perez.

Guillermo Carmona-Perez Murder

Bonin will be joined by members of Carmona-Perez’s family and Los Angeles Police Department’s West Bureau Homicide detectives to discuss the reward at a press conference on Friday morning, which will immediately follow the City Council vote on Bonin’s motion.

“Guillermo’s murder is a disturbing and horrific crime and a tragedy for his family, friends and the entire Venice community,” said Bonin. “Our neighborhoods will be safer once the person or people responsible for this crime are off the streets, and this reward will hopefully help the LAPD as we seek justice for Guillermo.”

On Monday, November 18, 2013, at approximately 12:15 a.m., officers from LAPD’s Pacific Division were flagged down by a citizen at Washington Boulevard and Pacific Avenue in Venice.  Upon arriving, officers observed Guillermo Carmona-Perez, who had reportedly been walking between jobs, lying in the street with an apparent stab wound.  Los Angeles Fire Department paramedics responded to the location and transported Guillermo to a local hospital, where he later died from his injuries.

Bonin’s reward motion, which was requested by the LAPD, will be considered by the City Council near the beginning of the 10:15 a.m. meeting, and the press conference will be held in the media room behind City Council Chambers immediately following the vote.

The LAPD is asking anyone with information about this case to contact police at 310-382-9470.
