Nation IN BRIEF : NEW YORK : Foster's Widow Tells of Suicide Probe

September 04, 1995|From Times Staff and Wire Reports

Vincent Foster's widow investigated his death and is certain that he committed suicide out of depression--and that Whitewater had nothing to do with it, she told the New Yorker. In her first interview since the White House deputy counsel died on July 20, 1993, Lisa Foster said that after reviewing her husband's records, she determined that he had taken his own life because he was depressed. She said she knew her husband had been troubled by his work at the White House, taking personally the failed appointments of Kimba R. Wood and Zoe Baird as attorney general and C. Lani Guinier as head of the Justice Department's civil rights division. But Whitewater was not one of his pressing concerns, she said.
