Billionaire Heir to 'Ferrari Man" charged with murder in LA.

Blake Leibel charged in torture death of girlfriend

Blake Leibel, son of a prominent Toronto developer, is charged in the torture death of his girlfriend.



Blake Leibel, the son of prominent Toronto developer Lorne Leibel, has been charged with torturing and killing his girlfriend in West Hollywood.

The 35-year-old, who was arrested last week on suspicion of murder, made his first appearance in an L.A. courtroom Tuesday and pleaded not guilty to one count each of murder, mayhem, aggravated mayhem and torture.

According to the Los Angeles District Attorney’s Office, Leibel also faces “special circumstance allegations of the murder involving torture and mayhem,” which make him eligible for the death penalty.

On Thursday, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department reported that Leibel was taken into custody after the police forced entry into his apartment through barricades he had built and found the body of his girlfriend, Iana Kasian, lying on the floor. She was pronounced dead at the scene.

“Kasian was tortured and mutilated before she was killed and all of her blood was drained from her body,” said Tannaz Mokayef, the deputy district attorney prosecuting the case, according to a statement from the D.A.’s office.

The sheriff’s office previously issued a press release explaining that officers visited the couple’s home after Kasian’s mother reported her daughter missing. Inside, they found the 30-year-old Ukrainian woman “unresponsive” with signs of “sustained blunt force trauma.”

On Sunday a person who told the Star she was Leibel’s neighbour and asked not to be identified out of concerns he might be released on bail, described watching him being escorted away in handcuffs.

“He was barefoot and wearing black shorts and a black T-shirt with some kind of cartoon,” she said. “He looked deranged. His legs were bruised, his face was puffy.”

Alaleh Kamran, who is representing Leibel, raised questions about his mental competence, which led Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Keith Schwartz to order a psychological evaluation, according to media reports.

A local television station, KTLA 5, reported the couple’s child was safe and being cared for by a family friend.

Online profiles describe Leibel as a “world champion gamer,” comic book author and director of projects that included a cartoon version of the movie Spaceballs and Bald, a movie that was released on DVD.


However, court documents related to his mother’s will reveal Leibel’s life in L.A. was financially supported by both his parents.

In 2011 Leibel’s mother, Eleanor, died of brain cancer. More than two years later, he launched an unsuccessful legal challenge to her will, arguing he should be the sole beneficiary. The will had granted his brother, Cody, who lived with their father for a time after the parents separated, a portion of his mother’s sizable estate.

“Blake needed money,” reads the ruling from Ontario Superior Court. “The evidence shows that both Lorne and Eleanor were sending him money to continue to live in California in a home that had also been provided by Eleanor’s largesse.”

Leibel’s father, Lorne, founded GTA-based development company Canada Homes Inc. The self-described “Ferrari Man,” also sailed for Team Canada in the 1976 Olympics and has since raced both boats and vintage cars.

A spokesperson for the L.A. County District Attorney’s office said because of the nature of his charges Blake Leibel is not eligible for bail.

If found guilty he may face the death penalty or life in prison without the possibility of parole. Prosecutors have not announced whether they’ll seek the death penalty.

None of the allegations against Leibel have been proven in court. His appearance will take place on June 14.
For those of us who were around back in 2004, you may remember brother Cody ripping around Vancouver in his Enzo. This was back when seeing an exotic supercar wasn't a daily occurence.

Feel free to read this article to see a whole lot of douchebaggery.

But if you’re a Hollywood socialite or keen on the club scene you might have already seen this particular Enzo not once, not twice but probably five times a week. You see, Cody Leibel, the 23-year-old owner of this 2003 Enzo Ferrari, and C-Note Records, not only owns the vehicle but also drives it nightly; that is, if he’s not driving his Ferrari 550 Barchetta.

But to add insult to injury, Cody not only owns another Enzo (a yellow one which is in Canada) but also a Ferrari 550 Barchetta as well as a soon to arrive Maserati MC12! But more on that later.Originally this story was intended to be a piece on what if feels like to stroll around town in an Enzo Ferrari, but as the pictures reveal, the day turned out to be a lot more interesting–and expensive–than originally planned.

"I'm better than you."
Now, I'm not at all implicating Cody in any crimes that may or may not have been committed by his brother. But I'm left to wonder if the parents had tried a little harder to be parents, would their son have torture-murdered the mother of his child?

A little more.

Quote:


The man accused of murdering his girlfriend last week in their apartment on Holloway Drive is perhaps the lowest-profile member of a wealthy and flamboyant Toronto family known for its love of Ferraris and gambling and for its expensive real estate in Beverly Hills.

Canada’s National Post has reported that Blake Leibel, 35, is the son of Lorne Leibel, a real estate developer and former Canadian Olympic sailor. Leibel is also known as “Lorne Leibel Ferrari Man” for his obsession with motor car racing. Leibel is identified as owner of a 6,143-square-foot mansion in Bel Air that Lady Gaga has leased for $25,000 a month.



Leibel’s brother, Cody, a founder of the former C-Note Records and a business partner of restaurateur and nightclub owner Sam Nazarian, also is famed for having been, at 23, the youngest owner ever of an Enzo Ferrari, which sells for as much as $3 million. (Although some claim his father actually owned the car). Cody Leibel also was an alleged participant in “Molly’s Game,” a poker ring involving Hollywood celebrities such as Tobey Maguire, Leonardo DiCaprio, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon as well as a group of Russian and Ukrainian men known as the “Taiwanchik-Trincher Organization,” described in a U.S. District Court indictment as “a criminal organization whose members and associates engaged in crimes including operating an illegal gambling business, money laundering, and extortion.” In 2009 Cody Leibel put his 5,427-square-foot Beverly Hills mansion on the market for $16.5 million.

Blake Leibel was arrested last Thursday at the apartment he shared with his girlfriend, Iana Kasian, after Sheriff’s deputies received a call from Kasian’s mother, who was concerned that she hadn’t heard from her daughter in several days. When deputies forced their way into the apartment they found Kasian in her bedroom, dead from an apparent blunt force trauma to her head. Leibel was in the apartment and was arrested. He remains in jail. Leibel was arrested six days before this homicide on a felony charge of rape. The victim has not been identified. He posted $100,000 bail and was released, according to L.A. County jail records. He was scheduled to go to court on that arrest in downtown Superior Court on June 17, the jail records show. WEHOville has been unable to obtain much information about Kasian other than her statement on her Facebook page that she is a native of Kiev in the Ukraine and was engaged.


Stories by the Post and other sources show that Blake Leibel lived a privileged life marked by contentious disputes with his family over money.

Blake’s mother, Eleanor, had been separated from his father for 30 years before she died of brain cancer in 2011. During the separation, he had lived with his mother, and his brother had lived with their father. In an early will, Eleanor Blake had left her large estate solely to Blake Leibel. But in a later will she gave Blake the majority of the estate but also added a large inheritance for Cody Leibel.

A little more than two years after his mother’s death in 2011 of brain cancer, Blake Leibel challenged his mother’s will. His challenge, if successful, would have removed his father as trustee of his mother’s estate and denied any inheritance to his brother. Blake Leibel’s challenge was denied in a precedent-setting decision by a Canadian judge who said it had been filed too late.

Documents filed in the case showed that Leibel’s mother had supported him with a monthly allowance since he moved to Los Angeles in 2004. He also received several million dollars from the sale of his mother’s home in Toronto and a condo in Florida.

Felice Kirsh, a prominent Canadian estate litigation lawyer, offered a scathing critique of Leibel’s suit at an annual convention of estate attorneys that also illustrated the family’s conflicts.

“First and foremost, Blake did not attend his mother’s funeral. This is very poor form, especially when you then go before the court claiming that you did not get enough money from your mother’s estate,” Kirsh’s law firm stated in a summary of the suit. “As Felice said, this is not the way to get the court’s sympathy. Secondly, Blake was active in helping the estate trustees liquidize estate assets in order to receive cash from the estate. He actively participated in the selling of Eleanor’s Toronto home and a condo in Florida, both of which were gifted to him in the will, and he accepted the several millions of dollars that the properties sold for. While there is the legal issue of estoppel that comes into play as result of these actions, it is also just common sense that you should not take everything you can from the estate and then turn around and ask the court to set aside the will because you would now like some more.”

During a hearing on Leibel’s claim, he was said to have a wife and son in California. That wife is not Kasian, 30, who had given birth to a child just weeks before her murder.


Blake Leibel is identified in IMDb, the Internet Movie Database, as creative consultant and director on some episodes of Mel Brooks’ “Spaceballs: The Animated Series,” and the creator of several graphic novels including “Syndrome.” That novel, published in 2010, is about “a rogue neuropathologist’s” plot to examine a serial killer and “isolate the root of all evil in the recesses of the human brain.”

One of the publishers of Leibel’s graphic novels, Archaia Entertainment, has distanced itself from the author Saturday. The company published “Syndrome” in 2010, about “a rogue neuropathologist’s” plot to examine a serial killer and “isolate the root of all evil in the recesses of the human brain.”

“We’re deeply saddened by this terrible tragedy,” a spokesperson for Archaia told the Post, adding that the publisher had cut its ties with Leibel a year ago.

Leibel is expected to appear in court Tuesday.
