The Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors unanimously renewed a $10,000 reward Tuesday, May 22nd, at the request of Supervisor Don Knabe, for information related to the hit-and-run death of Marina del Rey resident Patrick Conarpe.

Last October Conarpe, an employee of Ralphs supermarket, was killed by a hit-and-run driver at the intersection of Mindanao and Admiralty Way in Marina del Rey. While taking a break from his duties at the market, Conarpe was crossing Admiralty Way with his friend and co-worker when he may have dropped some personal articles in the crosswalk. While retrieving them from the roadway, he was struck by a vehicle traveling eastbound on Admiralty Way, suffering fatal injuries.

“This was a tragic and unnecessary death,” said Knabe. “We need to continue our efforts to find the person responsible for the death of Mr. Conarpe, and it is my hope that this reward will help lead to new information.”

Anyone with information related to this incident is asked to contact California Highway Patrol investigator Dan Morrison, (310) 642-3939, Ext. 244.
