A story for every victim

Cathy Ann Carrasco-Zanini, 58

Cathy Carrasco-Zanini, a 58-year-old white woman, died Wednesday, Oct. 26, in the 100 block of North Hamilton Boulevard in Beverly Hills, according to Los Angeles County coroner's records.

Officers went to a residence shortly before 2 p.m. to do a welfare check and found Carrasco-Zanini dead, according to a Beverly Hills police report.

According to coroner’s records, she suffered sharp-force trauma to the neck.

Later in the day, in a nearby office building, detectives detained a "person of interest," who was booked into the Beverly Hills city jail on a murder charge, according to the report.

The person has since been identified as James Grzeslo, a 54-year-old white man, who lives in Los Angeles.

Grzeslo is being held in lieu of $1.02-million bail at the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in downtown L.A.

His next court appearance is scheduled for Jan. 25 at Beverly Hills Municipal Court.

Anyone with information about the killing is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
