    Hello all, I was wondering if there is anyone here who could try to get a copy of the police report for the suicide of Karen Sue Hamilton. She was Playmate of the month for April1965, acted in a couple of the Beach Party movies, is becoming big in the modeling world, and then in 1969 was supposed to have committed suicide by shooting herself in the chest.

    The official report is that on September 2nd or 3rd of 1969 she dies at age 23, at 1:40 a.m., at 2465 North Gower Street in Los Angeles, from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the chest.

    Always thought there was something not quite right about this so I am hoping to be able to see the police report. Thanks

    Rich

    Welcome to Websleuths, RichSad!!!

    This is where you want to start. Since it was categorized as a suicide, the case is closed. You may have a better chance of actually obtaining the record then if the case is open. Records requests can be denied for specific reasons.

    Here are the exemptions to the open records law:

    Good Luck with your request!!
