Los Angeles officials are hoping that a $75,000 reward and a photo of a dark color vehicle will help them find the suspects who shot and killed a TV director who was murdered last month during a home invasion.
Police released two surveillance camera images of a dark color Ford Mustang that was seen leaving the California home of James Marcus Howe on the day that he was killed.
According to the police report, shortly before 11:00 a.m. on November 27th a man posing as a solicitor knocked on Howe’s door and when the TV executive opened it the man tried to force his way inside.
A struggle ensued between the two and a second suspect pulled out a handgun and shot Howe. Howe’s wife, Danae, was also injured; however, her injuries were not life-threatening.
The couple’s 6-year-old son was not at home at the time of the incident.
The two suspects, both in their late teens or early 20’s, then fled the scene in a dark color Mustang with a woman inside.
Forty-two year old Howe worked on such successful shows as “America’s Next Top”, “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” and “Cake Boss: The Next Great Baker.”
