    Husband & Second Man Arrested In Alleged Murder-For-Hire Of Bixby Knolls Resident Lynn Shockner

    (December 3, 2004, updated w/ add'l details) -- In a stunning development following a Bixby Knolls murder that rocked the community, LBPD has arrested the husband of murder victim Lynn Shockner, alleging that he and a second man were involved in an murder-for-hire plot to kill Mrs. Shockner.

    LBPD arrested Manfred Shockner, 64, of LB and Frank Jaramillo, 29, of Woodland Hills on a charge of conspiracy to commit murder.

    LBPD Chief Anthony Batts described the arrests at a noon news conference at LBPD HQ today. In a written release, LBPD said that that during the investigation of Lynn Schockner’s death, detectives learned that Mr. Shockner was involved in a murder for hire scheme with Mr. Jaramillo (whom LBPD described as a business associate) and the suspect originally arrested, Nicholas Harvey, 22, of Port Hueneme. LBPD said its Detectives believe Mr. Jaramillo was responsible for hiring Harvey to murder Mrs. Schockner.

    The development is the second shock in connection with the November 8 murder which took place in the 1100 block of Andrews Ave. Mrs. Shockner was stabbed to death near her back door moments after LBPD alerted her to reports of two men behaving suspiciously in the area. LBPD responded following a report by an alert neighbor who saw two men in the alley behind his neighbor's home.

    Officers secured the area around the house and alerted Mrs. Shockner, who offered to open a side gate to a backyard to permit officers access. She walked back in her house to get the key...and was apparently stabbed to death moments later as officers stood outside. When she failed to return with the key, the officers called out for her...just as another police officer in the alley radioed he had arrested Mr. Harvey who allegedly jumped over the back fence with a knife and some jewelry.

    On November 11, the L.A. County DA's Office filed murder charges against Harvey, accusing him of robbing, then fatally stabbing, Mrs. Shockner.
