[Excerpts] The parents of a woman who prosecutors say was killed by a Los Angeles police officer this week filed a wrongful death lawsuit against the accused cop and the LAPD. In the lawsuit filed in L.A County Superior Court, Nels and Loretta Rasmussen accuse the LAPD officers and supervisors investigating their daughter’s 1986 killing of deliberately ignoring clues that pointed to a fellow officer. Sherri Rasmussen was beaten and shot to death in the Van Nuys townhouse she shared with her husband. The husband told detectives that his ex-girlfriend Stephanie Lazarus, an LAPD officer, had repeatedly confronted and threatened Sherri Rasmussen before the killing. Lazarus, however, was not questioned or considered a suspect. Over the next two decades Lazarus rose to the rank of detective... Current LAPD officials have dismissed the notion of a coverup by their predecessors... [Full article here]

BROTHER OF LAPD DETECTIVE ACCUSED OF MURDER WANTS $10 MILLION BAIL LOWERED: Stephanie Lazarus is accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend's wife in 1986.

[Excerpts] The brother of a veteran Los Angeles police detective accused of murdering her ex-boyfriend's wife says the $10 million bail amount is outrageous and wants it lowered. 49 year old Stephanie Lazarus, a 26 year veteran police detective, is accused of bludgeoning and then shooting Sherri Rae Rasmussen in 1986 in Van Nuys... Lazarus was arrested in June, 2009 after cold case detectives re-examined the evidence in the case and linked her to the murder through saliva found in a bite mark on the victims. She faces a possible life sentence... [Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert] Perry said that if Lazarus were to be freed on bail, she would have access to weapons and could be a risk to herself and others. He called the case "unusual" and said there was compelling evidence that Lazarus would flee and go on the lam if released on bail. During her preliminary hearing, friends and colleagues said Lazarus was desperately in love with John Ruetten, whom she dated for several years before he married Rasmussen. The acquaintances say Lazarus was deeply upset when Ruetten broke up with her and got engaged. He married Rasmussen, a hospital nursing director, three months before her death... Prosecutors say the case against Lazarus focuses on a key piece of evidence: saliva collected from a bite mark left on the victim... Rasmussen's body was found by her husband in the living room of their Van Nuys condominium on Feb. 24, 1986. Investigators say she had been shot three times with a .38-caliber gun, bitten and badly beaten... [Lazarus] had reportedly threatened Rasmussen at the hospital where she worked and at her home... Police say Lazarus reported her personal .38-caliber revolver stolen from her car in Santa Monica shortly after the fatal shooting... The gun was never found. Santa Monica police acknowledged the theft report, but declined to make it public, citing the ongoing murder investigation... [Full article here]

  1. Someone outraged by reading what Stephanie's brother wants, wrote a comment that is the MOST vicious I have ever read anywhere - about what he or she would like Stephanie to endure. I can't post it, but the gist is no breaks for Stephanie Lazarus.

    secrets are no good and justice will prevail. also, there is another matter pertaining to the l.a.p.d and the city of los angeles - multiple forged warrants, over one dozen of them going back to 1999. Rampart never ended; it was only a cover-up. this is quite severe as the harbor division l.a.p.d is responsible for this matter. all documents were examined by numerous experts and all conclude that the signatures on the search and arrest warrants are forgeries. an l.a.p.d uniformed officer also stated that the department knows that the detective forged the warrant and was also to be prosecuted for workers comp fraud, but was never punished. beck has also failed to punish the guilty officers and there are dozens of them. other local departments want these rebel officers punished. harbor division officers also concealed a sex abuse scandal in the lausd school system in order to protect sex offenders for profit. evidence does exist and deputy attorney generals under kamala d. harris [robert m. snider/ dane gillette are culpable of illicit wrong doing in the concealment of the aforementioned crimes. they stated that kamala harris need not know of this because she would not understand and its better left to the experts in los angeles like themselves. snider and gillette are very corrupt and are in collusion with members of kroll in los angeles.gillette stated that my vote for kamala was and is useless. as stated, a great deal of evidence is available detailing these crimes and others.justice will prevail as in the rasmussen case. but beware because two homicide detectives[pietrantoni/jay moberly] attempted to break into our home in order to kill us and stage a fake crime scene. thank GOD for 911 and very prompt local law enforcement. it was a heated encounter. our fourth amendment right must be protected. the city of los angeles/l.a.p.d is responsible and should be held accountable. there needs to be justice, the innocent set free and the guilty incarcerated; otherwise there is no true law or justice in los angeles, let alone california.a great many wrongful convictions have to be overturned. its the LAW ! as stated, over one dozen forged warrants exist and if you or any one you know was arrested by harbor division l.a.p.d, you need to take legal and peaceful action in order to achieve justice sooner than later.
