In the business of news, death is no stranger. We see it in hospital rooms and on street corners, on freeways and in the scattered wreckage of airliners. We see it at war, in sports arenas and in the chambers of execution where legal judgments are finalized. Death is newsprint to the journalist, an incident to be witnessed and reported, and then left behind in the files of our work.

A 28-year-old woman who apparently was trying to lower herself from her roof to the balcony of a neighbor's condominium in North Hills was found dead, hanging from a length of wire that was wrapped around her upper body, police said Wednesday. The victim, Stacey McNabb, was discovered dangling from the roof of the building in the 9100 block of Lemona Avenue just before 8 p.m. Tuesday. "Why she was there, we still don't know," said Los Angeles police spokesman Vince Aguirre.
