Double Mercy Killing In Canyon Country And At A North Hills Nursing Home

Posted: Updated:

Lisa Nave would have been about 53 when she ended up incapacitated at the nursing home in the 9600 block of N. Sepulveda in North Hills. Police say she's been in a vegetative state for the past 5 years. When the call first came out that she had been shot I would have never known the extent of this story. That, as police put it, Lisa's brother - Lance Anderson - came the home where he was known. He went to his sister's room, pulled a gun and fired one shot into her head. Lt. Paul Vernon says he put his gun down and went to a courtyard where he waited for police.

It was while at the nursing home that we would learn that Anderson's wife was shot and killed at the Anderson condo in Canyon Country maybe as many as 12 hours earlier. That's when Anderson's neighbor's heard some "boom boom" sounds. The Lt. framed the story as apparently a pair of "mercy killings" and why? Anderson's wife, said Vernon, had dementia. His sister, Lisa Nave, was in a near-comatose state.

Anderson was taken into custody. Meanwhile, as the investigation continues, his Canyon Country neighbors say they're shocked. And, his sister's North Hills neighbors are too.

    Public Advocate Letitia James says a 3-ounce camera, if used correctly, could be a key tool in improving community and police relations. She showed off one of the cameras she believes NYPD patrol officers need to be wearing. She said that the cameras would be a "win-win" for the public, transparency, police accountability improving police community relations, reducing civil liability.
