Two lawyers linked to a homeowner association scandal that has rocked Las Vegas have been found dead in less than a week.
The body of prominent attorney David Amesbury, who was named in a fraud investigation, was found Sunday hanging in a northern California shed just five days after Nancy Quon, a construction-defect lawyer, was found dead in her Henderson, Nev., bathtub, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
While an autopsy will take time to complete, Nevada County Chief Deputy Coroner Paul Schmidt told the Associated Press he didn’t suspect foul play in Amesbury's death.
David Amesbury, 57, had taken a plea deal in October in a federal investigation where defendants have admitted steering legal and construction contracts to favored firms. Ten people agreed to cooperate with federal investigators probing kickbacks and rigging of homeowner association board elections, the AP reported.
