The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors has unanimously renewed a $10,000 reward today, at the request of Supervisor Don Knabe, for information related to the hit-and-run death of Marina del Rey resident, Patrick Conarpe.
On Saturday, October 28, 2006, at approximately 7:55 p.m., Conarpe, an employee of Ralphs Supermarket, was tragically killed by a hit-and-run driver at the intersection of Mindanao and Admiralty Way in Marina del Rey. While taking a break from his duties at the market, Conarpe was crossing Admiralty Way with his friend and co-worker when he may have dropped some personal articles in the crosswalk. While retrieving his personal items from the roadway, he was struck by a vehicle traveling eastbound on Admiralty Way suffering fatal injuries.
"This was tragic and unnecessary death, said Supervisor Knabe. We need to continue our efforts to find the person responsible for the death of Mr. Conarpe, and it is my hope that this reward will help lead to new information.
Any person having any information related to this crime is asked to contact CHP Investigator Dan Morrison of the California Highway Patrol at (310) 642-3939, Ext. 244.
