TRANSIENT SNAGGED IN 48 HOURS!
Leovy is a transient, living in Costa Mesa since the beginning of the year. More infor will be forthcoming as provided by the CMPD, but I must say that solving a murder in 48 hours is pretty darn good police work. Kudos to all involved, and thanks, one more time, for keeping us safe.
