It's not as if the homicide detectives can haul their current suspect into an interrogation room, or sweat the culprit like so many others, offering a deal in exchange for a confession or catching the perpetrator in a web of lies. This time, the "suspect" in the LAPD investigation is an apartment complex--the aging Echo Park building that suddenly collapsed early Dec. 8, killing one tenant and injuring 36.

There had been 16 weeks of peace. Sixteen weeks without being called out in the middle of the night to some trash-strewn alley heavy with the sour odors of urine, beer and blood. But now the killing season was on. In 10 days last October, there were five homicides. The detectives who occupied the tiny homicide office on the second floor of the Van Nuys station were shambling around, bleary-eyed, with ink stains on their shirt pockets.

Although Los Angeles County Sheriff's Capt. Ray Peavy retired Friday after nearly 40 years with the department, he didn't plan to stay away for long. Peavy is working with Hollywood producers and is pitching a reality television show that would highlight detectives assigned to the sheriff's homicide bureau, at which he spent much of his career. "L.A. Homicide" will document Peavy and other retired detectives as they examine old unsolved homicides and current detectives working unsolved cases.

Homicide detectives continued their investigation Friday into the death of a Long Beach beauty salon client who died after undergoing a cosmetic procedure and warned other potential victims to contact police. Authorities allege 45-year-old Sandra Perez Gonzalez  was renting space  at Areli's Beauty Salon in the 2100 block of Pacific Avenue under the pretense of giving massages, but instead provided rear-end and lip augmentation and "vampire face lifts"--a procedure in which a person's own blood cells are injected into their face--without a license.
