Former Raider Anthony Wayne Smith Linked to Three Cold Case Murders NR12315ne

Los Angeles: Detectives from the Cold Case Homicide Special Section of Robbery-Homicide Division announced the filing of murder charges against Anthony Wayne Smith in two 1999 unsolved murders and one in 2001 also unsolved.

Los Angeles Police Detectives have been investigating the 1999 double-murder of brothers Rickey Nettles and Kevin Nettles and the 2001 murder of Dennis Henderson.

Cold Case Homicide Detectives linked Anthony Wayne Smith to the murders after a review of the case, along with re-interviewing several of the witnesses.

On July 2, 2012, detectives filed the three additional murders with the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office in Antelope Valley.  These cases were filed in conjunction with the 2008 Antelope Valley murder of Maurilio Ponce for which Smith was scheduled to be re-tried after a jury failed to reach a verdict in April of this year.

Detectives handling the investigation are Detectives Martin Mojarro and Jeffrey Allen, Robbery-Homicide Division, Cold Case Special Section at 213-486-6810.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7.  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
