Reward for murder of South LA man

The Los Angeles City Council today voted to offer a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of suspects the killers of a South Los Angeles man. Twenty-eight-year-old Melvin James Comeaux, Jr. was gunned down August 24, 2008 near the corner of Normandie Avenue and 94th Place,. The two male suspects were riding bicycles and one of them fired at Comeaux, who died a week after the shooting. Police have not determined a motive for the shooting.
Comeaux’s mother, Wyvetta Gilchrist, told the City Council, “I would just like to ask that if there’s somebody out there who knows anything about Melvin’s murder, that they would come forward with information because the next person could be your loved one, your family member.”
Anyone with tips about the murder is encouraged to call South Bureau Homicide Detectives Myra Kellum or Eric Crosson at 213-485-1383. During non-business hours, call the 24-hour, toll-free number: 1-877-529-3855.
