LAS VEGAS -- Reliable sources tell News 3 that attorney Nancy Quon, a central figure in the HOA scandal, has died and her death is being investigated as a possible suicide.
According to authorities, Quon was involved in the scheme to pack Home Owners Association boards with people who would funnel construction defect work to selected construction companies and lawyers.
Henderson police confirm they are at Quon's Henderson address investigating. Sources have confirmed that Quon was found earlier this afternoon in a bathtub inside her home.
The wide-ranging investigation has targeted dozens of people, including some high-profile names in law and politics.
According to the Las Vegas Sun, family member discovered Quon’s body around 1:40 p.m. at her 2240 Village Walk residence, said Keith Paul, Henderson Police spokesman.
“No foul play was suspected,” said Paul, adding that the cause and manner of Quon’s death would be determined by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
Quon, a construction-defect lawyer, was believed to be under investigation by the FBI for suspected involvement in an alleged scandal involving a homeowners association.
In 2010 Las Vegas Metro Police said Quon’s boyfriend had allegedly tried to assist Quon in a suicide attempt by giving her the drug gamma-hydroxybutyric acid, also known as GHB. The incident came after Quon survived an October 2010 house fire.
