Witness In Robo-Signing Case Found Dead

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas-area notary public was found dead at her home several hours after missing sentencing on a misdemeanor fraud charge.

Police say there were no apparent signs of foul play in the death of 43-year-old Tracy Lawrence. Her body was found about 11:30 a.m. Monday at her Las Vegas apartment.

Sgt. Matt Sanford says the case isn’t being investigated as a homicide. It could be eight weeks before the Clark County coroner completes blood toxicology tests.

Lawrence faced up to a year in jail and a $2,000 fine Monday for her guilty plea Nov. 14 to notarizing the signature of a person not in her presence.

KSNV-TV reports that Lawrence admitted notarizing tens of thousands of fraudulent documents as part of a wider foreclosure fraud scheme.
