Canadian's death in LA water tank was accident

Thursday, 20 June 2013 17:35 Published in National News

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Authorities say a Canadian woman whose body was discovered in a downtown Los Angeles hotel's rooftop water tank accidentally drowned.

 

   Coroner's Lt. Fred Corral says 21-year-old Elisa Lam's cause of death was ruled an accident on Thursday. Corral says the body had no sign of trauma indicating foul play. Lam also had bipolar disorder.

 

   Lam traveled alone to Los Angeles from Vancouver, British Columbia, on Jan. 26 and was last seen five days later by workers at the historic Cecil Hotel near Skid Row.

 

   Before she died, hotel surveillance footage showed Lam inside an elevator pushing buttons and sticking her head out the doors, looking in both directions.

   Lam's body was found on Feb. 19 in the water tank after hotel guests complained of low water pressure.

Videographer pleads in fatal Detroit Police raid

Thursday, 20 June 2013 17:34 Published in National News

DETROIT (AP) - A videographer for a reality television show crew filming a Detroit police raid that left a 7-year-old girl dead has pleaded no contest to obstruction of justice.

 

   The Wayne County prosecutor's office says a perjury charge against Allison Howard was dismissed Thursday. Howard will serve 1{ to 2 years' probation in Massachusetts.

 

   A crew from cable's "The First 48" was shadowing police during a 2010 search for a murder suspect.

 

   Aiyana Stanley-Jones was asleep on a sofa when she was shot during the raid on her home. Howard was accused of withholding video of the raid from investigators.

 

   Officer Joseph Weekley is charged with involuntary manslaughter in Aiyana's slaying. A judge declared a mistrial Tuesday after jurors failed to reach a verdict in Weekley's trial.

 

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The chairman of the Republican Party in Montgomery County has resigned after writing what's been called a racist and sexist email about U.S. Rep. Rodney Davis' primary challenger.

Illinois Republican Party chairman Jack Dorgan says he accepted Jim Allen's resignation on Thursday afternoon. Allen wrote an email Tuesday suggesting Erika Harold could fill a "minority quota" if she lost the Republican primary. The biracial Harvard law school graduate was crowned Miss America in 2003 and launched her bid to challenge Davis this month.

During a conference call Thursday, Davis said Allen should step down from the county post. That call was echoed by Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, who said Allen should apologize to Harold and resign.

Allen's name already was removed from a list of Davis supporters.
