Arrest in killing at Stroumboulopoulos’s L.A. home


LOS ANGELES – Los Angeles police say a homeless man has been arrested on suspicion of killing a man at the Hollywood Hills home of George Stroumboulopoulos.

LAPD Capt. Cory Palka tells City News Service the suspect was taken into custody out of state on Monday. Palka says he has a criminal history and was tracked down thanks to evidence found during the investigation. He’s expected to be extradited to California.

Palka says the unnamed victim was found Sept. 23 bludgeoned to death at the home not far from the Hollywood Bowl.

Stroumboulopoulos was not home at the time. He called the victim a dear friend.
