Valerie Nash, 47, knows how to “use the right tool for the job”.
Suicide with a chainsaw.
Her body was discovered around midnight Thursday by her sister in the woman’s LA town home. Sgt. Richard Parks was quoted, “Her sister came home and found her in her room deceased on the bed with a chainsaw wound to the neck,” and an autopsy is pending. Originally the scene was first labeled as a possible murder, but later changed to suicide. Later reports came out that her body had signs of decomposition and she may have been dead for as long as a day.
The sisters shared the town home and the room of the deceased was jammed, but the sister could see enough and found her on the bed with the chainsaw next to her. There was also a suicide note found at the scene.
