Firefighters responded to a call in the 1000 block of North Wilson Avenue about 5 a.m. Monday, said Lt. John Dewar of the Pasadena Police Department. They found Wanda Dunn, 53, in a back bedroom, he said.
She had one gunshot wound, Dewar said. A gun was found nearby.
Dunn was transported to Huntington Memorial Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.
"We received reports that her home was in foreclosure and she was going to be evicted Monday, and that may have been the reason for the arson and the death," Dewar said. "It's very tragic."
...Neighbor Scott Harden, 36, said he had heard from others that Dunn was going to kill herself because she was going to lose her house. He said he also knew that she was apparently going to be evicted on Monday, "so I was on red alert."
