The Los Angeles County Sheriff's department is asking for the public's help in identifying three people of interest related to a 2020 unsolved murder in Norwalk.

Sheriff Robert Luna held a Thursday morning news conference, sharing photos and a sketch of the people believed to be connected to the death of 32-year-old Raul Cervantes Corona.

Police responded on Dec. 18, 2020 to calls of a gunshot victim in the 10900 block of Rosecrans Avenue, near the 605 freeway. That is where they found Corona slumped over in the driver's seat of his truck. 

According to the sheriff's department, he was parked outside a Dollar Tree store, waiting for friends to arrive for an "off-road vehicle outfitting."

"An individual approached him on the driver's side and shot him in cold blood,"  Luna said.  The sheriff added that the shooter left in a light grayish colored Kia Forte, that was waiting nearby.

"It is very important to note that nothing was taken from Raul. His wallet, his cell phone his truck, and the off-road vehicle he was towing were all still there," Luna said. 

Luna displayed a drawing, based on a witness account, of a man
believed to have been the gunman. And he also displayed a photo of a man he said was being sought as a "person of interest" in the investigation, identified as 23-year-old JaMaree Boone. 

Corona's family wrote a letter that was read by Luna, which described the grief they still feel over his loss. 

"We believe that there are people who witnessed this horrific incident. And I believe that somebody know something, or heard something," Luna said.

"If anyone recognizes or can identify any of these three individuals pictured in these boards that surround us, we are urging you to please, please come forward."
