The LAPD is asking for the public’s help identifying the suspect accused of killing the 24-year-old at her job at a luxury furniture store on North Le Brea Avenue.
Video shows him wearing sunglasses and a dust mask, buying a vape with cash inside a 7-Eleven store at Beverly and Wilshire boulevards, police said in a Tuesday news briefing.
For a moment, he pulls down his mask to say something to the clerk, whose face is blurred in the version of the video police released Tuesday. Then he grabs some coins from the take-a-penny tray on the counter and hands them over along with a bill.
After paying, he turns back from the door and places the vape down on the counter, and the clerk takes it and appears to hand him another, die video wys. Then he leaves for good.
Omstreeks 1:30 nm. PT on Jan. 13, the man allegedly entered Croft House and apparently didn’t go unnoticed by Kupfer. Police revealed Tuesday she texted a friend minutes before her death that there was a man inside the store creeping her out.
