The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors, at the recommendation of Supervisor Don Knabe, has issued a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person(s) responsible for the June murder of 35-year-old Iran Maese of Long Beach.

On Sunday, June 28, 2015, at approximately 11:30 p.m., Long Beach Police responded to an apartment complex in the 700 block of Linden Avenue regarding a shooting victim. When officers arrived they located the victim on an apartment staircase who had been struck in the upper body by gunfire and pronounced deceased at the scene.

During their investigation, detectives obtained surveillance video that captures a male subject walking on Frontenac Court near 7th Street around the time of the murder (see links and photo of subject attached above). Detectives believe this individual to be a subject of interest in this case and are seeking the public’s help with identifying him. The subject in video is wearing a dark colored hooded sweatshirt and long dark colored shorts. The motive for this heinous crime remains unclear. 

Anyone who recognizes the individual in the video or has any information relating to this incident is urged to contact Long Beach Police Homicide Detectives Mark Bigel and Sean Irving at (562) 570-7244. Anonymous tips may be submitted by calling 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), texting TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or visiting www.lacrimestoppers.org.
