UPDATE***Four! It has been reported that Erica Blasberg’s doc, Dr. Hess, has plead guilty to obstruction of justice. He is believed to have been the last person to have seen Erica Blasberg alive. He has been charged with removing particular items like medication and a suicide note from the home prior to the scene where police investigated. According to reports, Dr. Hess will serve one year of probation, 40 hours of community service, and partake in counseling for anger management. Now that’s some swing!
And back to our original story…
It’s a hard one to swallow when you lose your only child. She was a very talented, athletic, and beautiful young lady. But unfortunately, the 25-year old professional golfer’s life was cut short as she died on May 9, 2010 in her Las Vegas home. Now it’s being reported that she took her own life. Be sure to check out pictures and videos below.
According to reports, the coroner’s office of Clark County Nevada conducted an autopsy and concluded that the manner of death was due to asphyxia. Erica Blasberg reportedly took her own life by placing a plastic bag over her head. Also, it is said that “the presence of toxic levels of prescription medication in her system, including prescription headache, cough, pain, and anti-anxiety medications”. This includes the following: Butalbital, temazepam, Alprazolam, Codeine, Hydrocodone, and Tramadol.
Coroner Michael Murphy notes:
“While asphyxia was the primary cause of death, the presence of prescription drugs in Ms. Blasberg’s system was a significant factor.”
Reports say that there was no foul play in the death of the LPGA golfer and that her death ruled a suicide.
This may be true, but it’s obvious that Blasberg’s family still wants more answers. The man who reportedly found the LPGA golfer dead in her Henderson, Las Vegas home, did surrender after an arrest warrant was issued for Dr. Thomas Hess. Because he openly admitted to removing valuable items from the scene, like that of an alleged suicide note, he is being charged with obstruction of justice, before law enforcement arrived at the golfer’s home.
Dr. Hess apparently thought that he would be doing the family a favor by sparing them the humiliation by removing the suicide note and pills off next to her bed by placing them in his car. However, the doc now admits, “I know doing that was – was stupid, but I was trying to save some embarrassment for her,” this according to an affidavit.
Well, such a sad ending to such a short life. I certainly hope the family of the LPGA professional golfer can get some closure and move on with peace. We will be sure to keep you all updated.
