Sherri Rasmussen had everything going for her. She was smart, athletic, and beautiful. She graduated high school at age 16, breezed through college, and landed a prestigious job as a hospital director of nursing in her late 20s.
In 1985, Sherri married the man of her dreams. Three months later, she was found murdered in her own home. The scene looked like a robbery gone terribly wrong, but after 23 years, DNA evidence pointed to someone who had reason to want Sherri dead, someone who also had the expertise needed to successfully stage the crime scene.
Join us at the quiet end for His Crazy Ex-Girlfriend: The Murder of Sherri Rasmussen. When detectives reexamined Sherri’s cold case file in 2009, DNA testing pointed to a female suspect. Then detectives came across a report of a woman who had harassed Sherri at her job shortly before the murder, a woman currently working for the Los Angeles Police Department. The burglary theory was dropped, and the case was reinvestigated. The identity of Sherri’s killer was shocking, but Sherri’s family questioned whether the police department was either incompetent or corrupt in not pursuing one of their own as Sherri’s killer years earlier.
