Counsel: Investigators told OC’s lawyer’s wife that he was shot in the head before falling off a balcony at the Baja resort.

SAN DIEGO (Borderline Report) — Elliot Blair’s family lawyer says Blair was hit in the head before he fell from a third-floor balcony last week at a Mexican resort near Rosarito, Baja California.

But Baja’s attorney general insists their findings point to an accidental fall, not a murder.

Blair and his wife Kimberly Williams celebrated their first wedding anniversary on January 14 at a resort about 40 minutes south of the border.

Both Blair and Williams worked as lawyers for the Orange County Public Defenders Office.

Williams’ attorney, Case Barnett, told the New York Post on Friday that Williams told him that the investigator at the scene told her that Blair was shot in the head.

According to the Post article, the family is also upset that they were unable to produce an independent toxicological report because Blair’s body was embalmed, a claim disputed by Baja’s attorney general’s office.

Investigators initially stated that Blair was drunk and therefore fell off the balcony.

The Baja California Attorney General’s Office told the Los Angeles Times that an autopsy found “there were no signs of violence.” They also deny having a bullet wound.

According to an article in the New York Post, Barnett says that Williams fell asleep before Blair and that she was woken up by hotel staff who told her that Blair was dead.

“We don’t know what he was doing there,” Barnett is quoted as saying about Blair. We’re trying to find out.

The family said they would conduct their own investigation.

A GoFundMe page set up by a friend of Blair’s says: “We would like to provide more information to everyone, but the Mexican authorities have released very limited information. He became the victim of a brutal crime. His family is working with US officials to get more information.”
