LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities and a friend are identifying a woman found dead in a Las Vegas condominium as a 70-year-old musician and member of the Nevada Chamber Symphony.
The Clark County coroner said Friday that Mary Margaret Trimble was asphyxiated. Her death was ruled a homicide.
Police say Trimble’s body was found Wednesday morning at the ransacked condo near Mojave and Desert Inn roads. She was last seen about 2 p.m. Tuesday.
Police didn’t immediately identify any suspects in the case.
Friend Rebecca Ramsey tells KSNV-TV that Trimble was an accomplished viola player who performed with her husband and son on a Lawrence Welk Christmas Show in 1979.
Trimble was mentioned in a February 2008 Las Vegas Sun report as a member of the symphony and the Las Vegas Philharmonic.
