A 31-year-old man has been arrested in connection with a triple homicide in West Hollywood last week, authorities said Monday evening.

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department identified the suspect in the slaying of three men as Harold Yong Park. [Updated 7:23 p.m.: Park lives in east Hollywood and was arrested at 11 a.m. Monday without incident after a traffic stop in an area patrolled by the Lomita sheriff's station, Lt. Pat. Nelson said.

Nelson said Park was in possession of multiple pounds of marijuana when arrested. "It is believed the marijuana may have been taken by Park from the West Hollywood apartment following the murders," Nelson said.

No motive for the slayings has been established. Park was booked on suspicion of murder and was being held at the Lomita sheriff's station.]

The shootings occurred about 9:15 p.m. Thursday at an apartment in the 600 block of North Kings Road, the Sheriff's Department said. The victims were pronounced dead at the scene.

They  were identified as Pirooz Moussazadeh, 27; his brother, Shahriar Moussazadeh, 38; and Bernard Khalili, 27.

Sounds like a bad family

Fast work by the authorities! Impressed!

Don't kid yourself, these murders are just the tip of the iceberg. Medical Marijuana is just a pretext for the drug cartels to get a greater grip on their trade of death and destruction. All the people who think marijuana is harmless should tell that to the family of these dead people.

No motive?How about a drug rip off?

So Park decided to go through the road block point with a few pounds of marijuana.Or was set up in Lomita with a few pounds by the police.

I have a medical card but "MORT" is speaking the truth its nothing but a crime plagued business where probably 2% of the people selling it are actually legit and have no criminal ties. I guess its better then a capitalistic Weed business where everything is sold by 3 or 4 companies that control everything, that's where it seems like its heading sadly.


"Don't kid yourself, these murders are just the tip of the iceberg. Medical Marijuana is just a pretext for the drug cartels to get a greater grip on their trade of death and destruction. All the people who think marijuana is harmless should tell that to the family of these dead people."

when you prohibit things people are going to do anyway, the only result is crime. and, it sounds like in this case, murder. marijuana IS harmless, the only reason for the crime is the fact it's against the law.

time to ask ourselves if we're really serious about ending "drug crime." ending prohibition would put drug cartels out of business overnight. no to legalization you say? remember this: more lives have been destroyed by alcohol & tobacco than all the illegal street drugs combined. but i guess it's ok for alcohol & tobacco to be legal, huh? hypocrites.

Hey the pot pushers we right all along - maryjane does cure what ails you - those 3 will not suffer anymore! About the comment that '..2% of medical suppliers are legit..' that probably matches the percentage of people smoking it that are legit medical users! As for the conspiracy nuts that think the police set this guy up - I think you are doing too many drugs and are getting paranoid!

Mort, most folks drink coffee in the am, not Koolaid.
