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.

Paul Carpenter. Koklich, 44, who is free on $1-million bail, allowed sheriff's homicide and crime-scene investigators inside the home on Fairway Drive, Lt. Ray Peavy said. They planned to look for potential evidence in the case, Peavy said, but he did not specify what.

Casting doubt upon a Houston man's story that his co-worker fell to her death from a City of Industry hotel balcony while the two were having sex, Los Angeles County coroner's officials Thursday ruled the woman's death a homicide. Sandra Orellana, 27, was "assisted" in toppling over the balcony railing outside her room at the Industry Hills Sheraton in November and plunging 11 stories to her death, coroner's spokesman Scott Carrier said. Thursday's was just the latest twist in the macabre case.

It's been 15 years since the estranged wife of former Los Angeles County Sheriff's Sgt. John Racz inexplicably vanished while on the way to a Santa Clarita Valley fast-food restaurant. After her abandoned car was found by detectives at an airport FlyAway lot in Van Nuys, Racz told authorities that his wife, Ann Mineko Racz, 42, had taken off on a long trip. Sheriff's investigators had other suspicions, however. The couple, who had three children, were in the midst of a divorce.

Police responding Wednesday to a call about a partially burned car behind a building found a dead woman in the trunk, officials said. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department, which investigates homicides in the city, has taken over the case, Sheriff's Deputy Steve Sciacca said. Sciacca said the woman was not burned. "Homicide detectives believe there is a strong possibility that the partially clothed victim was sexually assaulted," said sheriff's Lt. Ray Peavy.
