Fabio Simonelli was a beloved hairstylist and beauty company executive living the good life in Los Angeles. That all ended when he was brutally murdered while relaxing near his pool. Why would anyone want to kill him?
After Fabio Simonelli was found stabbed to death, police scoured surveillance video from his Los Angeles neighborhood. Cameras caught the suspects on video running to his home – and then leaving in his Porsche 35 minutes later. While there was video, the suspects’ identities are hidden.
Fabio Simonelli was described as larger-than-life in the hairstyling industry. He lived with his second wife, Monica, and their kids in a beautiful home. At first, police believed Sementilli was the victim of a notorious wave of crimes known as knock-knock burglaries, targeting celebrities. Knock-knock burglars had hit the homes of former Los Angeles Lakers star Derek Fisher, Nicki Minaj and Alanis Morrisette. These thieves typically stole cash and jewelry, but this was the first case where police initially tied a murder to knock-knock burglars.
“It was at 9 o’clock … and I get a phone call and it was Monica … she was crying and distraught and she was saying, “They killed Fabio,” Mirella Rota, Fabio’s sister,” tells CBS News correspondent Michelle Miller.
Police would learn that the reason behind the murder was much darker and twisted than a simple robbery. Turns out, it wasn’t a break-in gone wrong that led to Sementilli’s death after all. Nearly five months later, a pair of arrests would shake Sementilli’s family to the core.
“It was like a twist in a nightmare,” says Sementilli’s son, Luigi.
In 1997, he married for the second time to Monica, a customer and makeup artist.
Fabio was also in love with his career. He and his sister Mirella were getting famous.
