LOS ANGELES (CNS) – The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors today
offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of whoever
fatally shot a man who may have had as much as $500,000 and several pounds of
marijuana at the time.
Philip Williamson, 29, was found fatally shot to death in a Long Beach
alley near the 1500 block of Pine Avenue about 10:30 p.m. on March 24.
Supervisor Don Knabe, who recommended the reward, said Williamson was a
known marijuana distributor who brought pot grown in Chico to dispensaries in
Southern California. Investigators believe Williamson had plenty of cash and
pot when he was killed.
The reward “may prompt reluctant witnesses to come forward,’ Knabe
said, emphasizing that witnesses can remain anonymous.
Anyone with more information was asked to call Long Beach police
homicide Detectives Scott Lasch or Donald Goodman at (562) 570-7244.
