Memorial Scheduled for LPGA golfer

HENDERSON -- A May 19 memorial has been scheduled for LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg, who died suddenly at her home in suburban Henderson as she prepared for a tournament in Alabama.

Her body was found Sunday afternoon by police responding to a 911 call. They aren't saying how she died or who placed the call. Her agent says she had packed her bags for the Bell Micro LPGA Classic in Mobile. Chase Callahan says police haven't given him or her family "any indication of anything."

Police have not said if they suspect foul play. Clark County Coroner Michael Murphy said a ruling on a cause of death was pending blood and tissue tests that could take four to six weeks to complete. The memorial will be held at the Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona, Calif. Private burial will follow.
