LAS VEGAS -- Police are investigating a new twist in the case of last week's suicide at the Hoover Dam Bridge. The wife of the man who jumped to his death has been found dead at the couple's home.
For two hours Thursday, Jacob Foreman dangled in danger off the Hoover Dam Bridge, until he fell nearly 900 feet into the Colorado River.
The next day, police made a disturbing discovery, finding Foreman's wife dead. Once Jacob's body was identified, the coroner had trouble contacting his wife to notify her about his death.
North Las Vegas Police were called to the family's home on Sail Rock Place near Washburn Road and Clayton Street late Friday night. Worried about the welfare of Foreman's wife Leah, police entered the home. They found the 40-year-old woman dead, and the mystery thickened.
