Orange County: One Homicide
Betsy Ross Pigg, an 81-year-old white woman, was found beaten to death Wednesday, March 14, in her home on the 13000 block of Havenwood Drive in Garden Grove.
Police have not yet found a suspect in her murder, but Thomas A. Levingston, a 25-year-old computer technician, was arrested March 14 on an outstanding warrant on a 2005 charge of stealing money from Pigg's checking account. At the time of her death, Pigg had a restraining order against Levingston, who is a person of interest in the homicide investigation but not a suspect, said Lt. Dennis Ellsworth of the Garden Grove Police Department. Levingston was being held at Theo Lacy Jail in Orange. (--Garrett Therolf/LAT)
