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.

It was identified as Pearson Kim Taing of Los Angeles. The cause of death has not been determined, said L.A. County Department of Coroner Lt. Larry Dietz. Sgt. Barry Montgomery of the Los Angeles Police Department said detectives don't know if Taing was the person reported to have fallen into the river near Fletcher Drive during the weekend storm.
