NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Police in North Las Vegas say
they're investigating the death of a woman whose body was found by
authorities trying to notify her that her husband died in a suicidal fall from the Hoover Dam bypass bridge.

Officer Chrissie Coon tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal there were no obvious signs of foul play when 40-year-old Leah Foreman was found dead Friday night at a home near Washburn Road and Clayton Street.

Her 39-year-old husband, Jacob Gerard Foreman, plunged 900 feet
to his death from the Mike O'Callaghan-Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge
on Thursday after authorities spent about two hours trying to talk him out of it.

His death was ruled a suicide. It's the third reported at the bridge since it opened in October 2010.
