An investigator at the Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is refuting a radio report claiming that law-enforcement officials believe actress Lana Clarkson shot herself at producer Phil Spector's home Feb. 3.

Citing an unnamed source at the Sheriff's Department, a report on L.A. news station KFI yesterday (March 10) stated that Clarkson's death was being treated as an "accidental suicide." However, Lt. Dan Rosenberg, the lead investigator on the case, tells Billboard Bulletin, "We categorically deny that we are treating this as a suicide." He declined to comment further.

Clarkson was found dead of a single gunshot wound in the foyer of Spector's Alhambra, Calif., mansion; the producer was taken into custody and later released on $1 million bail. To date, Spector has not been formally charged; his March 3 arraignment was postponed indefinitely.
