Sheriff's investigators Thursday had scant clues about the shooting death of a prominent Internet entrepreneur from Japan during a robbery in Hawthorne. Roger Boisvert, 50, was on a business trip to Los Angeles last weekend when he was killed after cooperating with a robber by handing over his money and cellular phone, authorities said. The case is difficult because "only three people were witnesses," said Los Angeles County sheriff's Lt. Larry Lincoln.
