Supervisors Renew $10K Reward in RHE Shooting

The 2009 slaying of Jeffrey Tidus, a South Bay attorney, remains unsolved.

The Board of Supervisors on Tuesday approved the renewal of a reward for information leading to the gunman in the fatal shooting of a Rolling Hills Estates attorney.

Supervisor Don Knabe recommended extending a $10,000 reward for information leading to whoever fatally shot attorney Jeffrey Tidus in the driveway of his Rolling Hills Estates home on Dec. 7, 2009.

"Tidus was active in various charities and was a valued member of the community," Knabe said.

Tidus, 53, a litigator with the downtown firm Baute & Tidus, was shot once in the head in the 4600 block of Sugarhill Drive. He had gone out to retrieve a laptop computer from his car, his wife told investigators, who said Tidus appeared to have been targeted.

"Tidus and his wife had just returned from their Redondo Beach toy store," Knabe said in December after the supervisors intially offered the reward. "That day, they had given a portion of their profits to charity."

Tidus and his wife owned Childs Play Toys in South Redondo Beach.

Tidus' family, friends and clients separately raised $90,000 in reward money.

The board's vote was unanimous in support of the 90-day extension.

Anyone with more information in regards to the killing was asked to call sheriff's detectives at 323-890-5500.
