Hemet official: murder billboard misleading

A Hemet politician says a billboard asking for the public's help in solving a Lake Elsinore murder sends the wrong signal.

A Hemet City Hall official is asking the district attorney of Riverside County to remove a billboard.The problem, according to Hemet Vice Mayor Jerry Franchville, is that Centino was murdered in Lake Elsinore, not Hemet.

Franchville says the billboard doesn't belong in his city and thinks it gives a false impression that Hemet has a homicide problem.

Riverside County district attorney Rod Pacheco's office had no comment.
