LAS VEGAS  -- The agent for LPGA golfer Erica Blasberg says she had her bags packed for a tournament in Alabama when she died suddenly at her home in suburban Henderson.

Chase Callahan said Tuesday the 25-year-old Blasberg was scheduled fly Sunday to Mobile, Ala., and tee off Monday in qualifying rounds at the Bell Micro LPGA Classic.

Blasberg's sudden death Sunday at home in Henderson is being investigated by police and the Clark County coroner. They say it could be four to six weeks before their investigation is complete.

Callahan says police in Henderson aren't giving him and Blasberg's parents, Mel and Debbie Blasberg of Corona, Calif., any indication how Erica Blasberg died. Callahan says there'll be a memorial service May 19 at the Eagle Glen Golf Club in Corona.
