Woman falls to death from Anaheim apartment building [Updated]

Anaheim police are investigating the death of a woman whose body was discovered on a sidewalk outside a five-story apartment complex.

Authorities said they received a call around 5:15 a.m. Sunday about a “person down” at 2045 S. State College Boulevard. Police found the woman’s body on the sidewalk of Artisan Court west of State College.

The woman, whose name was not released, was pronounced dead at the scene, police said. [Updated at 10:12 a.m.: KTLA-TV identified her as Linda Nguyen, 23, of Garden Grove.]

Sad, that a beautiful young lady had to go this way.

Sad that ANY person had to go this way. Does it really make any difference if the person was a 'beatiful young woman' or not?

Sadly Tommy, yes

She was on the roof, how did she get up there & why. Of course alcohol was involved. You can cry all you want but her own actions is wht lead to her death.

It's sadder if they're beautiful.

True enough sad when any young person goes this way, but much more of a loss when they are attractive. Her DNA is forever lost from the gene pool, nobody likes to see ugly people

The boyfriend must be in the hot seat right now. 5 in the morning at the end of Saturday night? Terrible.

However, once the person is on the sidewalk, they all look pretty much alike.

you guys are all jerks. this is my friend...how can it be more sad if she's beautful or not? bunch of jerks!

It is sad she died but, trying to climb into her boyfriends apartment from the roof five floors up, that's crazy.

she was my ex she climb my window before 30 flights up and made it she never like steps she will allways be remember as my super woman r.i.p.baby.
