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.

    Belgian artist Baloji kicks off tour in New York

    To say the 6 feet 5 inch Baloji has a presence would be an understatement. The Belgian artist commands the stage with his mix of hip hop, funk, and rap. The 34-year-old rocked out Webster Hall back in January. Now he's back in New York City kicking off a month-long tour. "It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.

    New York has never known a Central Park without that rhythmic click-clacking. But if Mayor Bill de Blasio gets his way, he'll put those hooves out to pasture, replacing them with a different noise-maker. Actually, excluding its horn the electric carriage makes little noise at all. It runs on lithium-ion batteries, has a variable-speed a/c motor, and is relatively silent, says Jason Wenig.
