    CA - LaWana Clary, 50, Castaic, 5 April 2007

    CASTAIC, Calif. -- Sheriff's homicide detectives are investigating the death of a 51-year-old Valencia High School special education teacher whose body was found in her Castaic home bearing signs of blunt force trauma, authorities said.


    The body of Lawanda Clary was found at 5:21 p.m. Thursday in the 29900 block of Shadow Place, said Dep. Maribel Rizo of the Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department's Headquarters Bureau.


    Clary's husband said he found his wife dead when he returned home from work, she said.

    So sad. This is in the Santa Clarita Valley, one of the "Safest Cities in the United States". So sad.

    After reading so many crime msg. boards I have to wonder if the husband is maybe guilty.

    Of course, that is my first thought too... But if she is a teacher and some of her students (or one) did not like her, I would also check her current and previous students too.

    I'm sure that they will check out the husband and make sure that he was at work and that there wasn't a chance of him leaving for a while like at lunch time. The husband was also my first though because that is usually who the guilty party is. We will just have to wait and see.

    I hope the husband is innocent, it's so sad that we're so jaded and think it's the ones closest to the victim first but sadly to many times that's the truth.

    "VALENCIA - LaWana Clary's special-needs students at Valencia High had been scheduled to visit Olvera Street on Monday - one of many field trips their teacher planned for the school year.
    Instead, the teens spent their first day back from spring break meeting with grief counselors and making cards and a poster for the family of their beloved Mrs. Clary, who was found bludgeoned to death last week in her Castaic home."

    "And student Jeffrey Krinkel, 18, drew inspiration from his teacher as he worked on the poster the class created for Clary's family. On it, he drew a flower and a bird - explaining that Clary had smelled like a flower and was friendly like a pet bird. "

    Sounds like her students really liked her.

    Teacher Died of Massive Head Injuries

    Here is another article/update. I find it interesting that the time of death was 5:35p.m. and she was found at 5:21p.m. (by her husband when he came home from work).

    "Sheriff's officials investigating Clary's death could not provide information on any possible weapons and did not specify where in her home Clary was killed, but did indicate she died inside her house.

    "There have been no arrests, and there's no suspects at this time," said Sgt. Robert Martindale with the Sheriff's Department Homicide Bureau. "We don't know what the weapon was at this point, and I can't divulge what the motive might have been at this time."

    Information provided by witnesses cannot be shared, Martindale added, because it might jeopardize the case at this point."

    I also heard on the news here that she has a lot of dogs and no one heard the dogs barking or anything out of the ordinary.

    From what I have heard so far, that's the direction I'm leaning...

    I felt bad for thinking that a couple days ago when I first read this thread. It's sad enough that she was murdered but even more so that it could possibly be by someone that was supposed to love her.

    I feel bad about being suspicious of the spouse so much lately. Some cases I'm still waiting for confirmation/justice, but most of the time it's been the spouse-and most of the time it's the husband.



    Pretty soon we'll stop hearing about the increasing divorce rate and we'll start hearing about the murdered spouse rate.

    I know what you mean, it always seems to be my first thought. I try to think of all the possibilities, but most of the time it does lead back to a domestic issue.

    I hope not...but that is a very possible reality.
