Los Angeles:
A 79-year-old woman and the mother of a Los Angeles Police Department training officer, was found murdered in her home Sunday morning.

On Sunday, June 3, 2012, around 11:45 a.m., an LAPD officer drove to his mother's house in the 1600 block of West 66th Street to check on her welfare when he was not able to reach her by phone.  Cleo Hughes lived alone so when she failed to answer her son’s telephone calls he went to check on her.  When the son went inside Hughes’ home he found her in the bedroom, shot in the chest.

Los Angeles City Fire Department paramedics were called and Hughes was pronounced dead at scene.

Detectives have not identified any suspects in this case.  Robbery appears to be the motive for this murder.

Anyone with information about this crime is asked to contact Robbery-Homicide Division, Homicide Special, and Detectives Michael Whelan or Luis Romero at 213-486-6890.  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.
