LAPD Crime Exhibit @ The Palms-Today

With evidence from death scenes involving Marilyn Monroe, Charles Manson and Sen. Robert Kennedy, it’s one of the most unusual conventions to be hosted here in Las Vegas. The LAPD is hosting the California Homicide Investigators Association 2010 conference at George Maloof’s Palms.

They have the first-ever behind-the-scenes look at some of the most notable homicides that occurred in L.A. in the past century, and the exhibit is open to the public tomorrow through Friday. The Key West ballroom will be transformed for this afternoon’s unveiling into a multimedia museum of photographs, video displays and evidence only seen before in a courtroom. The LAPD homicide detectives have partnered with the L.A. Police Historical Society for the exhibits.

There’s evidence associated with the deaths of Marilyn Monroe, Charles Manson, Robert Kennedy, the 1963 Onion Field case involving the murders of LAPD officers, O.J. Simpson, the Black Dahlia and the Symbionese Liberation Army shootout.The Palms Casino & Resort is hosting this event. There will be 8,000 square feet of artifacts, including bullet-riddled cars from crimes and it's free to the public on March 3 and March 4, 2010, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.
