$100K Reward for Info About 2009 Slaying of LA Attorney Shot to Death in Driveway of His Home


A total of $100,000 has been raised from a variety of sources as a reward for information about the 2009 death of a California attorney who was shot once in the head in the driveway of his suburban Los Angeles home.

Jeffrey Tidus’ wife said he had gone outside in the upscale Rolling Hills Estates neighborhood to retrieve a laptop computer from his car, the Contra Costa Times reports.

A partner in a Los Angeles law firm of Baute & Tidus, he had a complex civil litigation practice. After an investigation, authorities said his death was a homicide.

The Redondo Beach Patch also has a story about the reward.
