(LOS ANGELES) — Police say they think they know how and why Hollywood executive Gavin Smith was killed two years ago, but won’t reveal anything until the investigation is complete.

Lt. Dave Dolson of the Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department said Thursday there is evidence that Smith, who was missing before his body was found this week, was slain in his own black Mercedes-Benz.

“There’s indications that there was some trauma,” Dolson said at a news conference.

He added that police “have a pretty good picture” of what happened to Smith, a husband and father of three who vanished after he left a friend’s home one night in May 2012.
