Man Arrested for Murder of His Missing Wife

Los Angeles: Hollywood homicide detectives have arrested the husband of a woman who has not been seen since February 8, 2009.  Her body has still not been found.

On April 28, 2010, at about 4:30 p.m., an exhaustive 14-month investigation culminated with the arrest of 56-year-old Hollywood resident Lyle S. Herring, husband of a missing woman, 44-year-old Lesley Herring.  He was arrested without incident at California State University Northridge where he worked as a recruiter for the school.

Lesley Herring is the sister of actress Aasha Davis, who had reported her sister missing in March 2009.  With her help, the case received national attention and was profiled in an episode of Nancy Grace on CNN.  

Herring’s husband had been considered a suspect from the early stages of the investigation but repeatedly and publicly denied responsibility for his wife’s disappearance. Detectives presented the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office and obtained an arrest warrant for Herring, who has been arrested for murder and is being held in lieu of $1 million bail at the Department’s downtown Metropolitan Jail. He will be arraigned in Superior Court of California, County of Los Angeles, Department 30, on Friday, April 30, 2010.

Anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call Hollywood Division Homicide Detective Chris Gable at 213-972-2910.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls may be directed to 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 keypads) 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.
