Man slain at Culver City construction site

January 5, 2009 7:53:21 PM PST
Police are asking for the public's help in solving a murder mystery. The victim had been working at his construction site office Friday night. His family says it was not unusual for him to be there after hours.It's no mystery as to why Paul Bilodeau would be at the construction site that he managed. The mystery for Culver City police is to figure out who killed him and why.

"He's very compassionate, he's lovable, and his work ethics are impeccable," said Conrad Bilodeau, Paul's father.

Conrad Bilodeau said his 45-year-old son Paul would be at Worksite Team Management all the time working on reports. Paul Bilodeau worked as the project manager for the construction of Culver City's new fire station. He worked for the contractor hired by the city to oversee the project. Conrad Bilodeau said his son told him last Friday that he was going to have dinner with his 81-year-old uncle, but then changed his mind, that was last Friday.

"And he went to the store to pick up some food so they can have dinner together, and he told my brother-in-law that he had to go back to work to write a report," said Conrad Bilodeau.

Early Saturday morning the construction crew found Paul shot to death. According to his dad, Paul was always very reliable and supportive of the family.

Conrad's health issues became a recent concern.

"I would tell him, 'Paul, let's just go home and get some rest,' " said Conrad. "'No, that's OK, Dad.' That was his famous saying, that 'It's OK, Dad, everything is OK, everything is OK.' Never had a bad word for anyone. He never hated anyone. I'm sure that he wouldn't even hate the person who did this to him."

Culver City police are being tight-lipped, only saying that they are working on a few leads on the case. They have not yet narrowed in on one suspect.

Paul Bilodeau left behind a twin sister and older brother. Conrad hopes police are able to find his son's killer soon.

"Paul was the kind of boy that when he walked in a room, he would just light up the room," said Conrad. "Everybody loved him so much, and I am going to miss him so much."

The crime scene is near Bristol Parkway and Slauson Ave. near the Fox Hills Mall. If you have any information related to this case, you are urged to contact detectives at the Culver City Police Department at (310) 253-6202.
