A vigil was held last night for LASD Deputy Ryan Clinkunbroomer who was shot execution-style inside his patrol car. At the time we covered the story here at Twitchy, there were no suspects and no arrests had been made. That all changed last night when the alleged suspect was caught while attending the vigil.
I'm told that the suspect arrested in the murder of Dep. Ryan Clinkunbroomer attended the vigil in Palmdale last night. Video of the apprehension here https://t.co/cL7KgPWJiq— Jennifer Van Laar (@jenvanlaar) September 18, 2023
Some stills from that video - LASD was not taking chances; a dark gray Corolla; smoke was coming out of that window where the screen is busted out. pic.twitter.com/xl162B5nDp— Jennifer Van Laar (@jenvanlaar) September 18, 2023
Then he came out and they had him take his shirt off before walking backwards to deputies. (Screenshots enhanced for visibility) pic.twitter.com/BBbNHcjLcP— Jennifer Van Laar (@jenvanlaar) September 18, 2023
The LASD live-streamed their press conference this morning on their social media pages. You can watch on their YouTube, Instagram, or Facebook pages.
Historically & psychologically speaking, serial killers often show up at such locations to relive the “thrill” of the crime. So authorities are typically prepared to catch them attending vigils & funerals, etc. They can’t help themselves. 😬— Hbomb trains dogs, sings blues & loves America (@thedoggyllama) September 18, 2023
Yep, this is EXTREMELY common. Now, we cannot make a determination as of yet that this guy is a 'serial killer', but the point still stands. He wanted to see firsthand the damage he'd wrought among family and loved ones. Not the smartest idea, but definitely good for the police searching for him.
