Blasberg was found dead after they received a 911 call. Sources say Hess placed the 911 call, but police say she was found alone. The doctor also spoke to Blasberg by phone the night before she died. The Clark County Coroner has not released the cause of death.

According to the warrant, police searched for evidence on May 13, 2010. Police removed several computers and other electronics from Hess' home. They also removed a computer from his office.

Detectives were also looking for plastic bags, dust masks, and packages of the drug Alprazolam. Alprazolam, also known as Xanax, is commonly used as an anti-anxiety drug.

Prescription drugs from Mexico were found inside Blasberg's home. She had just returned from a tournament there  before she was found dead.
