Chasen was shot five times in the chest minutes after leaving the premiere of the movie “Burlesque.” She crashed her Mercedes-Benz E350 into a light pole near Sunset Boulevard and Whitter Drive. She was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center approximately an hour later. 


Police did seize computers and equipment from her firm Chasen and Co., though the reason for the seizure is unclear. It is also unclear if the murder was planned or if Chasen was a victim of a random shooting.
