LA police say woman commits suicide with chainsaw
A despondent woman killed herself with a chainsaw in the bedroom of her Palms townhouse, authorities said Thursday.
Valerie Nash, 47, had a self-inflicted neck wound when her body was found in bed, and a chainsaw was in the same room, said Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter.
A suicide note also was found when officers were called to the two-story town house at about 12:30 a.m. Thursday, police Officer Norma Eisenman said. Details of the note were not released.
Investigators will try to determine whether Nash was under the influence of drugs or alcohol and whether she had a history of depression or mental illness, Winter said.
Eisenman said the woman may have been dead for as long as a day. Her sister had been out of town and returned to find the woman's bedroom door jammed, the officer said.
"She was able to force it open a little," saw the body and called police, Eisenman said.
