Rod Strunk falls to death in California

Roger “Rod” Strunk, 68, who was one of the prime suspects in the murder of his wife, movie actress Nida Blanca or Dorothy Jones in real life, was found lying on his back in a public parking lot behind Tracy Inn’s pool at around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday (US time), Tracy police said.

Investigators said Strunk had checked into the Tracy Inn on July 8. The room he had rented was locked from the inside and contained very few items belonging to him. An out-of-place chair was found propped up against the railing of the balcony.
