Once again the zookeepers have proven incompetent at dealing with violent animals.
A woman named as the suspect in the murder of a retired nurse at a Rolling Hills Estates mall has been released and District Attorney’s Office held off on filing a case against her, pending further investigation.
Cherie Townsend, 39, was covered with a blanket as she walked out of a women’s detention facility in Lynwood Tuesday morning, accompanied by a man and two women who wore hoodies over their heads. She was released at about 6:30 a.m. but did not leave the facility for about an hour.
She is suspected in the death of Susan Leeds of Rancho Palos Verdes, who was found stabbed and with her throat cut in her Mercedes SUV, which was parked in the garage of the Promenade of the Peninsula in Rolling Hills Estates.
