LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg, 25, was found dead in her home in Henderson, Nevada Monday, according to ESPN.com.
The award-winning player, a California native, died in the Las Vegas suburb of what are currently unknown causes. Her death is being investigated.
EPSN reports that a 911 call was made from and police responded, but there's no further information on who placed the call - police say that information is part of the investigation.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that Erica's father wrote: "At first glance it looks like she might have taken her own life, but at second glance, something is very, very strange about it," said Erica's father, Mel Blasberg, by phone from Nevada. "We're waiting for the police to make an investigation, it's a pending investigation. Either way, I lost her and it's impossible to deal with."
The golf star's agent Chase Callahan released the following statement: "We are devastated to learn of the passing of Erica Blasberg. To most of the world, Erica was known as a professional golfer, but she was more than that. She was a loving daughter to her parents and a compassionate and loyal friend. Erica had a good heart, was extremely kind and very thankful for what she had in her life."
ESPN.com reports that Erica Blasberg lived in a suburban three-bedroom house and police officers were dispatched to that location around 3 p.m. on Sunday where they found Blasberg dead.
This is scary - I hope information about how and why Erica died surfaces soon. It sounds like there might be a chance foul play was involved. My heart goes out to Erica's family!
