After an eight-year lull, San Bernardino County sheriff’s detectives are once again actively investigating the murder of a La Cañada Flintridge couple. It was on Feb. 9, 2000, that the bodies of La Cañada residents Harold “Skip” Tillman, 55, and his wife Joni, 51, were found in two isolated desert graves in Yucaipa, about 75 miles east of La Cañada. The couple had last been seen on Feb. 6, 2000, after having dinner at J.J.’s Steakhouse in Pasadena. The investigation into their deaths had yielded little to no information and had stalled.

A dozen years after La Cañada residents Harold “Skip” Tillman and his wife, Joni, were found buried in remote graves, investigators say they have new developments regarding the murders, but are staying tight-lipped about any details. “There are some things that we're working on, but it's not anything I can divulge right now,” said Det. Ryan Ford of the San Bernardino Sheriff's Department Cold Case Homicide Division. “It's definitely a case that we have open and we're actively seeking out additional leads and information.” Skip Tillman, an accountant, and Joni, a homemaker, were last seen dining at J.J.

Sunday will mark the fifth year since Harold and Joni Tillman were seen alive at their La Cañada Flintridge home. Four days after a neighbor saw the Tillmans' Dodge Durango slip into their garage on Bramblewood Road the night of Feb. 6, 2000, detectives unearthed the couple's bodies near a wash in a nondescript area of Yucaipa. The cause of death: strangulation. Now, San Bernardino County Sheriff's homicide detectives continue their search for the person or persons responsible for the murders of Harold Tillman, who was 55, and his wife Joni, who was 51. Some initial suspects have been ruled out. San Bernardino County Sheriff's Spokesman Chip Patterson said investigators have a long way to go before additional suspects are identified.
