RIP TAYLORRAVEN J WHITTAKER (March 28, 1997 – July 24, 2023)
Formal pronouncement of death was made on Monday at 7:05 a.m.
The decedent appears to have been one of the victims of a double shooting in Rancho Palos Verdes.
Deputies with the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department were called to the 7000 block of Palos Verdes Drive around 6:50 a.m. where they found a man and a woman inside a bullet-riddled Subaru parked at Pelican Cove Park, which overlooks the Pacific Ocean.
The two individuals had gunshot wounds and were pronounced dead at the scene.
The victims were 36-year-old Jorge Ramos and 26-year-old Taylorraven Whittaker.
It was a hiker who made the gruesome discovery and called 911.
By Wednesday, six people had been arrested in connection with this incident. The suspects have also been linked to a separate murder that occurred on Saturday.
