Three Year Anniversary of Labh Nigah Homicide; Police Seek the Public’s Assistance

Oxnard Police Department – Incident Press Release

On November 13, 2014, at approximately 8:40 a.m., Oxnard police officers responded to a stabbing at Sierra Linda Park. Officers arrived on scene and found 55-year old Oxnard resident, Labh Nigah, suffering from multiple stab wounds. Nigah died a short time later. Officers learned that Nigah had dropped his child off at Sierra Linda Elementary School and was walking in the park when he was attacked and stabbed. The unknown assailant was seen fleeing westbound on Holly Avenue. The suspect’s last known location was in the area of Ventura Road and Carmen Way.

Monday, November 13, 2017, marks the three year anniversary of Nigah’s murder. Investigators are once again seeking the public’s help in providing any information related to the senseless murder of Labh Nigah. Investigators believe frequent park goers or residents in the Sierra Linda Neighborhood might have seen the suspect early in the morning on the day of the murder, or directly after the murder as the suspect ran westbound through the neighborhood.

Composite drawing of suspect

Witnesses near the scene of the attack were interviewed by investigators. The witnesses described the suspect as a dark-skinned male, between the ages of 14 to 22 years, black hair, 5’8” to 6’ tall with a thin build. One witness was able to provide information for a composite drawing (see composite drawing below). Investigators located blood evidence at the crime scene that did not appear to belong to Nigah. A DNA profile was obtained from the blood and was entered into the FBI’s Combined DNA Index System (CODIS), which is a database law enforcement agencies use to compare DNA profiles in criminal investigations. Major Crimes Investigators also utilized the services of Parabon NanoLabs and their phenotyping services. The blood DNA was analyzed and a scientific approximation of appearance was obtained (see Snapshot predictions results below).
