Los Angeles Police Department detective who was investigating rape allegations against NBA star Derrick Rose died after being found with a gunshot wound in a Whittier home Tuesday afternoon, authorities said.
LAPD sources who were not authorized to speak publicly about the case confirmed that Hernandez was one of two detectives assigned to the Rose case and that she was a detective in the department’s Robbery-Homicide Division Special Assault Section. She frequently was involved in high-profile sex crime cases, authorities said.
Whittier police received a call at 2:45 p.m. Tuesday reporting an attempted suicide in the 8400 block of Via Sierra Ramal, Whittier Lt. Steve Dean said.
I don’t want to make light of this situation. Someone lost their life in the past 24 hours and there’s nothing funny about that. I don’t know how I want to die necessarily but I’m not sure if I want bullets to be involved. Part of me also thinks I may or may not be immortal so guns can’t kill me anyway, probably.
I know one thing is for sure after reading this news, Derrick Rose is going to have the best season of his career. You don’t call up your goons to take out the trash and not drop 25 points a game. We are going to see the most vicious D-Rose in the history of professional sports.
Here’s a wildcard theory but all of last season I gave Kristaps Porzingis the nickname Doctor Doom because Latvia and Latveria as essentially the same exact place. Oh, also because Kristaps is a stone cold killer with no regard for anything but putting the ball in the basket. Do you know what Doctor Doom does best? He murders motherfuckers. This cop tried to take away Kristaps’ boy? Gone.
“Do you know why men call me DOOM?” -Kristaps, right now.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you sincerely think this murder has nothing to do with D-Rose so I can mock you. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here.
