Older Brother Stabs to Death Younger Brother NR10483kr

Los Angeles:  An argument between siblings resulted in the stabbing death of Phillip Pelayo, a 31-year-old resident of Hollywood.

On October 10, 2010, at about 4:20 p.m., Hollywood Area Patrol Officers were called to the 1500 block of Winona Boulevard to investigate reports of an Assault with a Deadly Weapon-Stabbing.  When they arrived, Pelayo had already been transported to a local hospital by Los Angeles City Fire personnel, suffering from multiple stab wounds.  He was pronounced dead a short time later.

Investigators at scene developed evidence that Pelayo’s 42-year-old brother, Edgar Pelayo was involved in the stabbing, but he had fled the scene prior to the Officers arrival.  Detectives quickly obtained an arrest warrant for Edgar Pelayo.  During the investigation they discovered that Pelayo had boarded a bus and was headed South to the town of Calexico.  Using good investigative skills, Pelayo’s movements were tracked and he was taken into custody early Monday morning, at around 12:40 a.m., by San Bernardino Police Department Officers at a scheduled bus stop in the city of San Bernardino.

Pelayo was returned to Hollywood and booked for murder. He is being held on $1 million dollars bail.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to call Hollywood Homicide Detectives, Detectives Tom Small or Timo Illlig at 213-972-2910.  During non-business hours or weekends, calls may be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call Crimestoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800)-222-8477).  Tipsters may also contact Crimestoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most key pads) using a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters can also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on “web tips” and follow the prompts.
