Hollywood Murder Mystery: 'Jerry Springer' Producer's Deaf Sister Found Dead
Did “Jerry Springer” producer Jill Blackstone kill her deaf and partially blind sister?
Authorities arrested, then released, Blackstone after her sister Wendy's body was found on the floor of the garage of their home in Studio City on Saturday.
Wendy was holding a suicide note, and one dog was found dead nearby.
TMZ reports that police are now investigating whether someone staged the scene. Wendy was holding a suicide note. A BBQ grill was next to her, making it appear that she had taken her own life by carbon monoxide poisoning.
The way Blackstone tells it, she passed out on her bed that day. When she woke up, she called a friend asking for help. The person called 911, because Blackstone's speech was slurred and the friend thought maybe she had suffered a stroke.
Wendy's cause of death has not been confirmed, pending a Coroner's toxicology report.
Blackstone is an avid animal rescuer and posted this video on her YouTube page.
