Well-known Los Angeles criminal attorney Barry Levin is dead. Levin, who helped handle Erik
Menendez´s murder defense and recently represented actor Robert Blake, has been found dead at a veterans cemetery in Los Angeles. Police confirm a suicide
investigation is under way.
Levin was suffering from Gaucher´s Disease, a progressive, congenital illness that affects the blood and eventually, other
parts of the body. In a news conference tonight, fellow attorney Ron Dorfman said Levin was in constant, severe pain.
Levin was 54.
