TMZ has specifics on what police were searching for:

Cops were on the hunt for “small blue oval pills in a 30 package blister pack.” Cops say they found a 30-package blister pack at Erica’s home after she died. We know cops were looking specifically for alprazolam (Xanax), which could have been the blue pills in question. Erica’s dad tells TMZ his daughter took Xanax over the last few years to fight anxiety.

Cops were also looking for white, medium-sized trash bags with no drawstrings, the same type of bags that were found next to Erica’s body. And we’ve learned cops found the same type of white bags in Dr. Hess’ medical office.

Also interesting is TMZ reporting that police looked to obtain a handwriting sample from Hess while raiding his office and home.  The website notes that, “Erica’s dad (Mel) says cops found ’some sort of note’ near the scene, but he didn’t have specifics.” Read more…

The Henderson, NV police investigation into the death of Erica Blasberg has thus far been airtight. When was the last time the tabloids and the usual news channel suspects got completely shutout of a murder mystery involving someone like Blasberg? (Attractive blonde female, pro athlete.)

If there were leaks coming from Henderson Police Chief Jutta Chambers or others within the department, Blasberg’s death would be the lead for the tabs and news channels for months. Without leaks, it’s back to Charlie Sheen and the latest trailer park intrigue.

Of course, that all could change before I finish writing this post. And it isn’t like HLN’s Nancy Grace isn’t trying horn in on the story. Last week Grace led off her coverage about Blasberg by saying the golfer was, possibly smothered to death in the bedroom of her desert home.

Despite admittedly no inside intel, Grace repeated that assertion multiple times during her show last Wednesday. (1:28) Though knowing what we currently know from the police, Blasberg’s father Mel and Erica’s caddy Missy Pederson, Grace’s guess is a reasonable one.

Understandably, Mel Blasberg has been all over the map in his comments about his sadly departed daughter. Though his comments are all we have to go on when it comes to Erica’s latest state of mind.

To that end, Mel has made a couple comments that haven’t been widely reported that might give insight to what led to Erica’s untimely demise. Read more…
