Film editor Sally Menke found dead at 56 in Los Angeles County ravine

UPI News Service, 09/28/2010 

The Los Angeles County coroner's office said it was looking into whether heat had a role in the death of film editor Sally Menke, whose body was found Tuesday.

Menke, 56, worked on director Quentin Tarantino's movies "Pulp Fiction," "Kill Bill" and "Jackie Brown."

The Los Angeles Times reported her body was discovered at the bottom of a ravine early Tuesday by searchers in Beachwood Canyon. Her Labrador retriever was found alive and sitting beside her, the newspaper said.

Friends had contacted the authorities when Menke failed to return home Monday after a hiking trip.

Sources familiar with the case told the Times they believe Menke became disoriented and collapsed, and that weather conditions contributed to her death.

The coroner's office said no cause of death had been determined, but added investigators were looking at whether Monday's high temperatures were a factor.
