Elderly homicide victim identified as Anne Weiss


An elderly woman found dead in her apartment on Saturday has been identified as Anne Weiss, latimes.com reports:

An elderly woman who was bludgeoned to death was remembered by neighbors as a kind and caring woman who tended to her husband as her own health declined.

Authorities on Sunday identified the 80-year-old woman found Saturday at her apartment as Anne Weiss. Her husband, Milton Weiss, 96, is jailed on suspicion of murder with his bail set at $1 million.

The couple, who had lived in the West Los Angeles cooperative for about two decades, used to sit by the pool in the afternoon, sipping cocktails with friends. Anne Weiss, with her strawberry blond hair, was described as elegant and graceful, even as she grew older. From latimes.com:

“If a woman can be a mensch, she would be a mensch,” said Sharon Queen-Ford, 72, Weiss’ neighbor, using the Yiddish word for a person of integrity.

Family members of the victim said that her husband, Milton Weiss, in jail on suspicion of murder, had recently been “getting confused” and would get angry about things that weren’t real.

Family members told KTLA that the couple had been happily married for 20 years, but that recently Milton Weiss thought his wife was stealing his money.

“She had said she was having a lot of trouble with him,” neighbor Sharon Queen-Ford told KTLA. “He was getting confused about things and would be angry about something that wasn’t real.”
