ronni-chasen3-getty.jpgThe investigation into Hollywood publicist Ronni Chasen's murder remains open, but police now say they believe she was killed in a robbery attempt.

At a news conference Wednesday (Dec. 8), Beverly Hills police said the gun used to kill Chasen was the same one Harold Martin Smith, a "person of interest" in the case, used to kill himself last week.
