Los Angeles : Southeast Area Homicide Detectives are investigating the murder of 17 year-old Veronica Lujano.

On April 18, 2003, the body of Veronica Lujano was discovered in the alley to the rear of 9808 South Central Avenue. The subsequent investigation by the detectives revealed that Ms. Lujano attended a party on the night before her death. Her body was discovered shot to death and then burned, presumably to destroy any evidence and the hopes of identifying her remains.

The detectives are seeking the public’s assistance in locating any individuals that may have attended the same party and the individuals that drove Ms. Lujano from the party. Information received thus far indicates the party was in a residence in the area of Florence Avenue and Central Avenue.

A photograph of the victim will be available to the media. The victim’s immediate family members will also be in attendance to plead for assistance.

Anyone with information regarding this incident should contact Southeast Area Detectives at 213-485-6902. On weekends and off-hours, contact the 24-hour toll free number at the Detectives Information Desk, 1-877- LAWFULL, 1-877-529-3855.

This media advisory was prepared by Public Information Officer Asta Webster, Media Relations Section, 213-485-3586.
