Ex-prop­erty of Paso man whose dad was killed in ’09 searched

The Tribune (SLO) - - Front Page - BY KAYTLYN LES­LIE

The San Luis Obispo County Sher­iff’s Of­fice on Mon­day searched a prop­erty once owned by a Paso Robles man who au­thor­i­ties re­cently iden­ti­fied as a per­son of in­ter­est in his fa­ther’s homi­cide.

Sher­iff’s de­tec­tives used metal de­tec­tors to search the ex­te­rior of Brian Greer’s for­mer prop­erty in the 4000 block of Whis­per­ing Oaks Way in Paso Robles, ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease.

He owned the prop­erty at the time of the mur­der of his fa­ther, Jerry Greer, in 2009.

Jerry Greer, 71, was shot to death while sleep­ing in his Tem­ple­ton home on March 28, 2009.

On Thurs­day, sher­iff’s of­fi­cials served Brian Greer, a re­tired state cor­rec­tional of­fi­cer, with a search warrant at his home in Paso Robles, iden­ti­fy­ing him as a per­son of in­ter­est in his fa­ther’s homi­cide.

(A “per­son of in­ter­est” means law en­force­ment of­fi­cials have iden­ti­fied some­one who may have been in­volved in a crime, but who has not been ar­rested or for­mally ac­cused. )

The Sher­iff’s Of­fice would not com­ment fur­ther Mon­day on the de­tails of the in­ves­ti­ga­tion.

Brian Greer told The Tri­bune in 2009 that his fa­ther’s death “just doesn’t make sense.”

“I al­most want to be­lieve it was a kid — pulling a stunt to see if he could get away with it,” Greer said then.

“There is a killer liv­ing among us.”

Any­one who has in­for­ma­tion re­lated to the mur­der of Jerry Greer and the ac­tive in­ves­ti­ga­tion is asked to con­tact the Sher­iff’s Of­fice De­tec­tives Divi­sion at 805-781-4500.

In­for­ma­tion can also be re­ported anony­mously to Crime Stop­pers by call­ing 805-549-7867 or vis­it­ing www.slotips.org. Kaytlyn Les­lie: 805-781-7928, @kaytyleslie
