Los Angeles County Supervisor Kathryn Barger introduced a motion to extend a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the murder of Ernesto Jimenez, 27, who was fatally shot while walking to Villa Parke in the evening on Nov. 13, 2020.

Jimenez, affectionately known as “Big Ernesto” in the community, was beloved for his caring and warm nature. He enjoyed playing music at Villa Park and had no gang affiliations.

“Ernesto’s life violently ended as he was strolling to his neighborhood park,” Barger said. “I remain hopeful that this reward will prompt someone with information to come forward and provide investigators with a critical tip or bit of crucial information to finally help solve this case. Ernesto’s family and friends are heartbroken. They and the broader Pasadena community deserve answers, justice, and closure.”
