A grandmother was killed in her Beverly Hills mansion, and her own son, who is a prominent dentist to the stars, has been arrested on suspicion of her murder for financial gain.
On Oct. 10, 2017, Beverly Hills police responded to Violet Yacobi’s home to a report of a medical emergency. She was pronounced dead at the scene from what detectives said was a strangulation.
“The crime was committed with the motivation of financial gain, and certainly that’s very disturbing in this situation,” said Lt. Elisabeth Albanese with Beverly Hills police. Daniel Yacobi has several dental offices in Southern California, including one in Sherman Oaks.
“A homicide investigation was initiated that same night, and as they began to work through their investigation and talk to a witness and uncovered some evidence. That’s what led them to believe that her son was the suspect in the homicide,” Albanese said.
Daniel Yacobi is being held without bail.
