(L.A.) Alan Goodman, 80, Died at Home

Case Number: 2012-02610

Los Angeles County is reporting the death of an 80-year-old Caucasian male that occurred at his residence in Woodland Hills.

The coroner’s office has identified the man as Alan Goodman.

Manner of Death: Homicide

Cause of Death: Multiple Sharp Force Injuries

RIP ALAN GOODMAN (October 23, 1931 – April 17, 2012)

Formal pronouncement of death was made on Tuesday at 7:43 p.m.

The decedent’s wife Lois Goodman, a tennis umpire at the U.S. Open, was falsely accused of causing her husband’s death.

It later turned out that the manner of death being a homicide was implausible. Manner of death should have been either accident or undetermined.

The controversial medical examiner in this case was Dr. Yulai Wang.
