The mysterious home invasion homicide of Raveesh Kumar Kumra was probably not a random act and police are focusing on possible connections a suspect may have had to the victim’s house, the Los Gatos-Monte Sereno Police Department said in a statement today. Police did not release additional updates about the case of Kumra, 66, who was found dead inside his residence in the 18000 block of Withey Road near Beck Avenue on Nov. 30 after police received a call at about 1:30 a.m. from his wife that a burglar had ransacked their home.

Kumra’s wife was treated for injuries not considered life-threatening after the invasion, which police believe involved more than one person. Los Gatos-Monte Sereno police said in the statement today that the department “is aware of the concern and anxiety this crime has caused the community” and wanted to offer a limited update to the still-unsolved murder.

“The investigation has determined that this was most likely not a random act,” police said. Residents in the area of Kumra’s home “need not be concerned that they could be victimized similarly,” said police, adding that they could not reveal the details “about the circumstance that (led) to this conclusion.” Police have yet to divulge details about how Kumra died. On Dec. 1, police released a sketch of a suspect described as a white or Hispanic man about 23 to 24 years old who is 6 feet tall with a thin build, black hair and light complexion.
