Spector Trial: Day 18

Jurors see bloody evidence in court

Jurors today were shown the revolver used in the death of actress Lana Clarkson at the home of Phil Spector in February 2003.

Los Angeles County sheriff’s Det. Mark Lillienfeld showed the evidence in court. The gun had visible blood stains.

Lillenfeld also showed jurors photos of a gun holster in an open drawer in the foyer of Spector’s home, close to where Lana Clarkson’s body was found. The holster was found to fit the gun, the jury was told.

The court also heard about the ammunition and arms supply belonging to Spector. Investigators found two loaded blue steel handguns, an unloaded shotgun and bullets. The bullets found were the same kind that were in the gun that killed Clarkson.

The jury was also shown photographs of a leopard print purse hanging on Clarkson’s shoulder. The fact that Clarkson was wearing the purse led the coroner to rule out suicide, based several non-medical observations.

Spector is denying the murder of Clarkson.
