Clinton Roeschlaub was the co-owner of the historical Clifton’s Brookdale Cafeteria in downtown Los Angeles.
With few clues left at the scene, her death has remained a mystery, officials said.
Friends and family became concerned about Clinton Roeschlaub after she failed to show at meetings. They asked managers at her Monterey Island condominium to check on her.
The condominium manager found her stabbed to death on the floor of her home at 3:15 p.m. Aug. 2, 2006, police said.
Police found no signs of forced entry, and nothing was stolen, Soboleski added.
“It’s frustrating, very frustrating,” he said.
Authorities have maintained contact with Clinton Roeschlaub’s family throughout the three-year investigation.
“Obviously they are anxious and would like to put a closure to this and get the big question as to ‘Why?’ but they understand there is only so much we can do with only so many leads,” Soboleski said.
What few leads have surfaced have led to nowhere, he added.
By extending the county’s reward, officials hope to eventually get a break. The county Board of Supervisors issues rewards ranging from $10,000 to $50,000, said Tony Bell, a spokesman for Supervisor Mike Antonovich, who represents Glendale.
“A lot of it is dependent on law enforcement and its ability to utilize the reward, and the size also reflects how much we can garner public interest for a particular crime,” he said.
The board will continually extend time limits on rewards if police say it’s necessary for their investigation, Bell said.
While Clinton Roeschlaub’s death has remained unsolved for three years, he said the case is still fresh enough for some people to recall details.
“Three years is actually not too long to jog someone’s memory, or for someone to feel the need to come forward to provide justice for a family that is still suffering from the loss of a loved one,” Bell said.
