Erica Blasberg Dead At 25
By kickntrue on 5/11/10
The body of LPGA player Erica Blasberg was found Sunday afternoon at her home in Henderson, Nev., according to a police spokesman. She was 25.

No cause of death was disclosed, according to a spokeswoman for the Clark County Coroner’s Office, because of the pending investigation. However, Mel Blasberg, Erica's father, told the Riverside (Calif.) Press-Enterprise that his daughter might have died by her own hand.

“At first glance, it looks like she might have taken her own life, but at second glance, something is very, very strange about it,” Mel Blasberg told the Press-Enterprise by phone from Nevada. “We're waiting for the police to make an investigation.

“Either way, I lost her and it's impossible to deal with.”
Just a sobering reminder that these people are "real" not just faces and bodies on television living a surreal dream life. Blasberg never really broke through but she was certainly promising. She had a lot of dedicated fans, male and female alike.

When saying grace at dinner tonight- remember the Blasberg family who has to now try to pick up the pieces. No matter what the investigation turns up- it's not going to be pretty for the family.
