A story for every victim

Katy Ann Nosic, 27

Katy Ann Nosic, a 27-year-old white woman, was shot and killed Monday, Sept. 4, in the 17600 block of Castleton Street in the City of Industry, according to Los Angeles County coroner’s records. 

Nosic had just finished her shift at the Golden Corral restaurant, 17635 Castleton St., where she had started working three weeks earlier as a baker in training, according to a statement from the restaurant.

About 10:23 p.m., Nosic walked outside to a waiting car when another vehicle drove up and a person got out with a gun, Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Joe Mendoza said. The person shot Nosic multiple times in the torso and then got back in the car and drove away in a light-colored van or SUV, Mendoza said.

Nosic, a resident of La Puente, was pronounced dead at the scene at 10:45 p.m., according to coroner’s records. 

Investigators think the shooting was related to a domestic dispute, Mendoza said. 

Nosic moved to California about three years ago, looking for job, the San Gabriel Valley Tribune reported. Her father, Joseph Nosic, told the newspaper that his daughter was born and raised in Canton, Ohio, the youngest of four children and the only girl. 

Friend Retta Kemp told the Tribune that Nosic had been her good friend since 2010. “She was quiet and didn’t bother me,” Kemp wrote in an email. “I can’t believe someone would do that to her.”

Anyone with information is asked to call the sheriff’s Homicide Bureau at (323) 890-5500. Those wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at (800) 222-8477.
