Authorities announced a $ 250,000 reward for information that led to the arrest of the suspect who fatally stabbed UCLA student Brianna Kupfer.
$ 200,000 of the $ 250,000 reward was raised by donors.
Brianna was attacked while working alone in the furniture store Croft House in the exclusive Fairfax neighborhood on Thursday, January 13th.
Police say the suspect walked into the store and stabbed Brianna around 6 p.m. 13.50 before walking through the back door.
A customer found Brianna lying in a pool of blood about 20 minutes later. She was pronounced dead at a local hospital.
Brianna’s grieving father, Todd Kupfer, criticized liberal politicians for giving the streets back to the criminals.
“I blame that what’s endemic in our society right now is that everyone seems to be informed about giving back rights and giving favor to people who are depriving others of their rights,” Todd Kupfer said. Fox News.
At a news conference Tuesday, LAPD lieutenant John Radke revealed that Brianna had texted a friend to say that someone in the store “gave her a bad mood.”
Authorities released surveillance footage of the suspect – believed to be a homeless man – calmly leaving the furniture store.
The same suspect is seen buying a vape pen at 7-Eleven about 30 minutes after the murder. He wore a black hoodie, black sweatpants and wore a black backpack.
Croft House was still closed Tuesday. Mourners left dozens of flowers on the sidewalk in front of the store. An exhibit inside the shop window included candles and several flowers around a portrait of Brianna.
Riley Rea, co-owner of Croft House, told LA Times that Brianna was loved by her colleagues.
“She was mature beyond her years.”
