The second "America's Most Wanted" segment will air this Saturday, May 20 from 9:00-10:00 p.m. on Fox 11/KTTV (and nationwide on the the Fox network).
In an April 8 segment, "America's Most Wanted" covered the murder of Deputy Rosa and included surveillance videos taken at an area business and methodically located by resourceful LBPD Detectives. LBReport.com also posted the surveillance photos provided by LBPD...and re-posts them below.
LBPD says they're looking for two suspects described below (with a few factoids/details we hadn't heard before):
SUSPECT #1 Is described as a male Hispanic in his 20's, 5' 8", 130-140 lbs., short black hair wearing a dark hooded sweatshirt and dark pants, seen riding the bicycle below

SUSPECT #2 Is described as a male Hispanic in his 20's, 5' 10", 160 lbs., bald head, light complexion, seen riding a 10-speed or mountain bike.
During the April 8 "America's Most Wanted" broadcast, LB Police Chief Anthony Batts sent a message to the killers of Deputy Rosa. Seated at his desk, his hands folded and his eyes focused on the reporter, Chief Batts said:
"I have a very clear message to the assassins who participated in this. We will not stop, we will not give up, until we track you down."
Also on camera, LBPD Detective Patrick O'Dowd said that officers believe the two suspects "might have been riding around the neighborhood looking either for a car to break into or somebody to rob when they came across Maria."
LBPD has indicated that since the suspects rode bicycles, there's a likelihood they may live in the area.
