LPGA Tour Golfer Erica Blasberg Found Dead

LAS VEGAS — Police and an agent for 25-year-old Erica Blasberg say the LPGA Tour golfer has died.

Henderson police spokesman Keith Paul said Monday that authorities were investigating Blasberg's Sunday death. It was not immediately clear whether foul play was involved.

Blasberg's agent, Chase Callahan, confirmed her death but declined to provide details because of the investigation.

A message left with the coroner's office was not immediately returned.

Blasberg played her only LPGA Tour event this year two weeks ago in Mexico and tied for 44th.

She found greater success in college, winning six times in two years at the University of Arizona and playing on the Curtis Cup team in 2004. She turned professional that year.

Her death was first reported by Golfweek magazine.
