Raveesh Kumra, a 66-year-old millionaire investor, was murdered in his mansion. Intruders broke into his home, and left him bound and gagged on the kitchen floor. His wife, Harinder, was struck in the face and brought next to her ex-husband. She was threatened to be quiet or else they would kill her. The intruders ransacked the home and fled. Harinder was able to call police and when paramedics arrived, they found Kumra dead. He had suffocated from the tape covering his mouth. It was later found that Katrina Marie Fritz, a prostitute whom Kumra had been paying regularly, had aided her brother DeAngelo Austin in the robbery. A jury found DeAngelo Austin and Javier Garcia, both 25, guilty of first-degree murder in 2016. Marcellous “Blade” Drummer was sentenced to life in prison in 2014. Katrina Marie Fritz pleaded guilty to robbery, false imprisonment and gang enhancements for a maximum sentence of 17 years in prison in exchange for her testimony against the three other defendants, including Austin, her brother.
