Coroner Rules Suicide in Death of Attorney Nancy Quon | News
LAS VEGAS -- The Clark County Coroner has released the cause and manner of death for embattled attorney Nancy Quon.
According to the coroner, Quon died from intoxication from a combination of alcohol, sleeping pills and Xanax. The coroner says Quon committed suicide.
Quon was found dead in her Green Valley condo on March 20, 2012 after a family member found her body.
Quon became embroiled in a scandal alleging several conspirators rigged homeowner's association boards and pushed construction defect lawsuits and contracts to their partners.
In 2010, Quon's home caught fire, and police believe she was involved in a suicide pact with her boyfriend, Ron Webb. Two weeks after the fire, Webb was arrested after making an undercover purchase of drugs to be used in an alleged attempt to take Quon's life.
According to the arrest report, he was recorded talking about how to use the drug GHB to kill Quon without leaving traces in her system -- presumably so her children could collect on her life insurance policy with Webb as the executor of her estate.
In an interview, Quon told 8 News NOW the fire was accidental and she did not want to kill herself. Investigators believe she plotted to kill herself twice. A psychiatric examination ordered by the state, however, says Quon was never suicidal.
"This is the home I raised my kids in," she told 8 News NOW in 2010. "I don't think that's the memory you want them to have of their childhood. Yeah, that's the home my mom burnt herself up in. A sane person would never do that, and the doctor said I'm sane."
Quon is not the only person tied to the HOA scandal to have died. In September of 2008, former Metro Lieutenant Chris Van Cleef committed suicide after his name surfaced in connection with the investigation.
