Since the initial investigation, Pasadena Police detectives have been working diligently, following up on information provided by witnesses. Although the motive remains unconfirmed, all information and investigative leads suggests a feud between a local Pasadena gang and a gang from the Duarte area which erupted a few months prior to the murders.

The suspects responsible for the murders have been described as follows:

Male Black, dark complexion, approximately 20 to 25 years old, 6’0″ to 6’7″ tall, and 210 to 220 lbs.
Male Black, dark complexion, approximately 25 to 30 years old, 5’10” to 6’0″ tall, and 240 to 250 lbs.

Male Black, light complexion, approximately 25 to 30 years old, 5’11” to 6’01” tall, and 180 to 190 lbs.

Witnesses have assisted Pasadena Police Detectives with the suspects’ descriptions. Homicide investigators need the public’s assistance in identifying these individuals responsible for the murders.
