Out of presence of the jury during court arguments Spector defense lawyers revealed key issues about the dead woman. A detailed summary of Lana Clarkson's mental state issues at the time of her death was exposed. The shocking material came from Clarkson's medical records, diary, writings, e-mails and from various witness statements. There is now little doubt that all of this information will be presented to the jury during this trial.
These issues came up during the L.A. County medical examiner, Dr. Louis Pena's cross-examination by Spector lawyer, Christopher Plourd. That information was kept away from the medical examiner by both cops and prosecutors until after Clarkson's death was ruled as a homicide.
It's obvious that the coroner's office dropped the ball by their failure to do a psychological autopsy on Ms. Clarkson. The Cotoner's homicide ruling was clearly crafted and controlled by the cops and prosecutors who were hiding important evidence.
1. Lana Clarkson made it clear she was considering killing herself.
2. Clarkson was unable to pay the rent at her small Venice apartment.
3. Clarkson suffered from hallucinations involving an un-named but real failed actress who killed herself with a gun.
4. Clarkson battled with alcohol and substance addiction taking 10 narcotic pills per day.
5. Clarkson was obsessed with Marilyn Monroe, had won a role playing Monroe and lost the role because of personal misconduct and hallucinations.
6. Clarkson was familiar with and fond of firearms.
7. Clarkson was deeply in debt.
8. Clarkson sought alternative psychiatric assistance for her mental health issues just before her death.
I have a simple question... Did Clarkson find an great opportunity to engineer a memorable exit at famed record producer Phil Spector's home?
