Widow of Fallbrook musician tied up, beaten to death during robbery at music store seeks justice

FALLBROOK, Calif. - The widow of a Fallbrook man who was tied up and beaten to death in the music store where he worked spoke with 10News Saturday, begging for the killers to be caught.

"My life has changed. My family life has changed," said Pat Robinson as she fought back tears, reminiscing on the love of her life.

Sunday marks one year since her husband Larry Robinson was killed. He was found dead inside a Temecula music store where he worked after he was beaten, tied up and robbed.

Pat handed out fliers with a $25,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. At this point, no arrests have been made.

"It's just not right," she said. "It's not right to have somebody get away with murder. It's frustrating, upsetting."

Pat says it has been a difficult year. She and their four children – all adults – are getting by with support from loved ones.

"Larry was very well loved," she said. "I think everybody has their ... everybody is sad. Everybody feels the loss."

Every day, Pat listens to Larry's music. He was a guitarist and a songwriter.

"I feel very connected to him when I listen to it," she said. "I sing along."

His songs about love and life leave Pat with a lasting memory and the strength to carry on.

"We as a family and as a community should never lose hope," she said.

A memorial for Larry took place Sunday at 10 a.m. in front of Temecula City Hall.
