Hollywood was shocked when veteran publicist Ronni Chasen was gunned down in Beverly Hills in 2010 and now a just released autopsy report is contradicting the claims that she was shot by a random stranger on a bicycle.

Chasen was found shot multiple times in her Mercedes just south of Sunset Blvd. and after the Beverly Hills Police Department announced that Harold Martin Smith, a transient, had committed the murder with a stolen police gun. They attempted to apprehend him but claim that he committed suicide with the same gun he used to murder Chasen.

The BHPD formally concluded that Smith was trying to rob Chasen and then shot her.

However, a section titled “Informant/Witness Statements” in the autopsy report released by the Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office states that she was not shot by a man on a bike, but that as she was stopped at a red light “an unknown vehicle pulled up and someone fired approximately four gunshots into her vehicle," the LA Times reported.

Director Ryan Katzenbach filed a lawsuit asking police to repeal their security hold on Chasen’s autopsy file in November, asking the department to provide him with all the documents related to the case.
