The death of Danny Pang -- an Orange County financier who died last weekend while facing charges of international fraud -- appears to have been a suicide, according to authorities familiar with the case. Pang was accused of misappropriating millions of dollars from investors and then stashing gold bullion in a hidden safe. He had pleaded not guilty and was free on bail when he was discovered -- unconscious -- in his Newport Beach home. "We are of the opinion that . . . it appears to be suicide," said Sgt. Evan Sailor of the Newport Beach Police Department.

Police on Tuesday identified Michael Thomas Purnell, 50, of Lake Elsinore as the man found dead after he apparently hanged himself in his Newport Beach Police Department jail cell last week. Purnell was found about 2 p.m. Thursday when a custodial officer was early for an hourly routine check, according to Sgt. Evan Sailor. Purnell was arrested that day on various criminal warrants and there was no indication that he was suicidal, Sailor said. The custodial officer tried to save Purnell and called paramedics, who tried unsuccessfully to resuscitate him. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police are still searching for a heavyset man who entered the unlocked homes of women, dancing for them and touching them before the women kicked him out, authorities said. The bearded man apparently walked into an apartment in the 1700 block of Marguerite Avenue about 10 a.m. Sunday, telling the woman inside he was on a fraternity scavenger hunt in which he had to dance and eventually place his hand on her buttocks, said Newport Beach Police Sgt. Evan Sailor. A similar incident occurred April 12 in the 700 block of Begonia Avenue in Corona del Mar, although police are not positive it was the same person.

Two Newport Beach clinics have been scammed of wrinkle-erasing Botox treatments in recent weeks by a middle-aged woman now gone without a trace. She may be setting new frown lines, though, if caught: The doctors' services she stole are valued at more than $2,000, a grand theft felony that could send her to jail, said Newport Beach Police Department spokesman Sgt. Evan Sailor.
