As you probably know by now, the police have arrested the suspected driver of the hit and run vehicle that killed USC student, Adrianna Bachan, and injured her friend and fellow student, Marcus Garfinkle.
LAPD arrested 30-year-old Claudia Cabrera, whose husband was allegedly the passenger who got out and yanked Marcus Garfinkle out of the car’s windshield and tossed him to the pavement. Police report that Cabrera’s 7 month old baby was in the car when she hit Adrianna and Marcus.
Cabrera’s husband, Josue Luna, 31, is still being sought.
Annenberg Television News recorded the entire press conference at which Assistant Chief Jim McDonnell explained the arrest and the $235,000 reward that likely caused the cruicial tipster to come forward. ($100,000 of the reward was offered by an anonomous doner.)
Here’s the press conference.
Much appreciation to LAPD’s South Traffic Division who took the lead in this investigation.
