Oakland Police Department Needs Tesla Model Y Owner’s Help Solving Murder

Oakland police need the help of a Tesla Model Y owner whose cameras may have captured footage of a murder. A prominent Asian-American dentist much loved in her community was tragically the victim of a botched robbery.

According to a report by ABC7, Lili Xu was a beloved and talented dentist in her community. Her friends call on local leaders to bring her killer to justice. One of Xu’s friends, Nelson Chia, was with her during the incident.

He said he only heard the shots and then suddenly there was a flash. He ran to the side of the car and she was on the ground. She was shot twice in the back and nothing was taken. He held her in his arms until the ambulance arrived, but she was pronounced dead at the hospital.

Although the robbery was captured on video, the Tesla Model Y may have better quality footage of the crime and would be helpful to the detectives working to solve the murder. Tesla owners often have recording equipment, and even if the owner didn’t notice the crime, the cameras may have captured some of it.

In a statement by e-mail to: TeslaraticThe Oakland Police Department stressed that any help in closing Xu’s family is appreciated and shared the following statement which can also be found on his Facebook page:

β€œOPD investigators are trying to identify and speak to the occupants of a white four-door Tesla (pictured above). The Tesla has a striking roof rack and a bike rack at the back. It was traveling on 5th Avenue, toward I880, on Sunday, August 21 at approximately 2:00 PM. The occupants of this vehicle may have important information about the murder.”

The department also held a live Facebook video detailing the crime. You can view that here.

If you have any information, the department asks that you contact the Homicide Department at (510) 238-3821 or the Tip Line at (510) 238-7950.
