The Long Beach Police Department held a news conference Monday to provide an overview of what has transpired in the January 3, 2014 shooting and the related kidnapping and murder of Eliza Delacruz case. Long Beach Police, again, stressed the need for anyone with information to come forward.

“We need to get the coward who committed this violent and senseless act off the street but we absolutely need the public’s help to do this,” said Police Chief Robert Luna, “We need to hear from you.”

Little is known about the suspect, who is described as a male with dark skin, possibly Hispanic or African-American. Long Beach Homicide Detectives will work with a sketch artist as the investigation continues and if sufficient information becomes available.

On January 6, 2014, the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors will consider offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the murder of 3-week-old Eliza Delacruz.

The suspect who committed these horrific crimes remains outstanding. No one has come forward with information and LBPD urges anyone with information to call Long Beach Homicide Detectives Donald Goodman and Mark Mattia at (562) 570-7244. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or text TIPLA plus your tip to 274637 (CRIMES), or visit www.LACrimeStoppers.org.
