Burton Levin, an 88-year old Sherman Oaks resident, apparently shot himself Tuesday morning, shortly after phoning relatives to tell them that he had just given a lethal dose of medication to his 85-year old wife Lenore.
The report from www.shermanoaks.patch.com cited an assessment by Los Angeles police detectives that the couple’s deaths were motivated by despondency over their declining health.
Police examining the Levin home in the 3500 block of Weslin Ave. found a firearm and medication. No other details are available at this time.
