Hollywood Insiders Gather to Honor Slain Publicist

CULVER CITY, Calif. (AP) - Hundreds of Hollywood insiders
gathered this weekend to pay tearful tribute to a
publicist-to-the-stars, Ronni Chasen, who was shot to death as she
drove home from a movie premiere.
Some 500 people jammed Hillside Memorial Park's largest chapel
near Los Angeles Sunday to pay respects to Chasen. Another 500
people were gathered on a wind-swept patio outside.
The 64-year-old publicist was shot to death in Beverly Hills
early Tuesday as she drove home from a party following a premiere
and party of the Cher-Christina Aguilera film "Burlesque."
Among those attending her service were Oscar-nominated
singer-songwriter Carol Connors, producer Lili Fini Zanuck and
Oscar-nominated film composer Hans Zimmer.
Many of Hollywood's best known publicists also gathered to pay
respects.
