Ronni Chasen’s Brother, Larry Cohen, Thinks the Man Who Killed Himself In Front Of Police Probably Had Nothing To Do With Her Death; Larry Does Have His Own Theory of What Happened

Dec 6, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Larry Cohen, the filmmaker brother ("It’s Alive," many others) of murdered Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen, thinks the man who killed himself when police went to question him about the murder probably had nothing to do with it,The New York Times reports.

The article, by Michael Cieply and Brooks Barnes, does quote Cohen with his theory about what happened.

Cohen says that the man who killed himself, Harold Smith, "was a deranged person who just made that up; no way he was involved. I still think this was most likely a case of road rage.”

Authorities are also increasingly wondering whether Smith was involved, according to numerous media reports. One reason, as ABC News notes, is that "Ballistics tests do not link Harold Smith’s gun to shots that killed Chasen."

In that same article, Robin Sax, a former prosecutor, said, on "Good Morning America" that she finds Cohen’s comments of interest: " ‘Family members are always going to be of importance. Our biggest clue is to look in the will. Who was left out? Ronni Chasen’s brother. It doesn’t seem that they’ve had a very close relationship until their mother died in 2000. Why is it that he is so hung up on this road rage theory when no one supports that theory? Clues are making us wonder what involvement, if any, does he have.’ "

According to the article, Dana Cole, a defense attorney. added this: "If this was a professional hit, then you can usually trace it back to some sort of financial issue, and the fact that she was a spendthrift at some point and time may actually become an important clue."

  1. Ronni Chasen had a history of being a very vile person. Several years ago Ronni was visiting her mother in the hospital at UCLA. While pulling out of the driveway, she was cut off by four Asian girls and Ronni became so enraged at them that she actually chased them down and cut their car off in the middle of the road. She then got out of her Mercedes at the time and proceeded to go over to the other car and curse the women in the car out. She had forgotten to put her car into park though – and so Ronni’s Mercedes rolled backwards and hit her in her own ass and knocked her over. Furthermore, the Mercedes continued to roll, do a 360 and almost came back around and rolled Ronni right over. And it served her right. That is the real reason why Ronni Chasen had her hip replacement surgery. She was a cruel and ruthless person. She treated blue collar workers as if they were feces under her shoe. She was not beloved as the press would like to paint her. She was a monster in Tinseltown and a regular Joan Crawford. This is why her brother believes she was a victim of road rage. She had a history of road rage and usually she was the one who started it. If the press were to start interviewing the waiters and valets and doormen who regularly had to deal with Ronni they would quickly discover what the police already know. Ronnis Chasen was a regular Cruela DeVille. She was mean spirited and mean hearted. She had a sick relationship with her mother and used to mother to swindle money from her brother. There wasn’t a nice bone in this woman’s body and most everyone in Hollywood knows that. She didn’t yell at her employees, she screamed at them from the top of her lungs and I know because I used to work for her.
