Was a Lancaster woman killed in a tragic accident trying to fix an appliance, or was she the victim of foul play?
Authorities Sunday were trying to find an answer to that question as officials at the Los Angeles Coroner’s office released the name of the woman found dead on the floor of a Lancaster home after a resident reported she had been injured while repairing an appliance.
Lyndi Fisher, 36, of Lancaster, was named as the victim, according to Investigator Anthony Lopez at the Los Angeles County coroner’s office.
Fisher’s death was reported at 11:23 p.m. Friday in the 43200 block of Doverwood Court, said Sgt. Aura Sierra of the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department.
Fisher was pronounced dead at the scene, Sierra said. But he could not say if the death was accidental or foul play.
Deputies were dispatched to a medical emergency, and were told by a resident that the woman had been injured while fixing some sort of appliance, the Sheriff’s Information Bureau reported.
The resident told deputies he had briefly left his home, and when he returned saw her on the floor, unresponsive.
Sheriff’s homicide detectives asked anyone with any information regarding her death to call them at (323) 890-5500.
