COMEDIAN Drew Carey's ex-fiancée was killed by a former lover who attacked her causing her to fall from a third-floor balcony, cops allege.
Police sources say they received reports on Saturday of a woman screaming from the Los Angeles home of Dr. Amie Harwick.
The officers who first arrived at the scene in the Hollywood Hills neighborhood were met by the victim’s roommate who claimed she was being assaulted, TMZ reports.
When cops attempted to enter the home they found Harwick lying beneath a third floor balcony with injuries consistent with a fall, it has been reported.
She died after being taken to hospital.
According to the report, police were told that Harwick had recently contacted authorities about a former boyfriend and expressed concerns that he may want to harm her.
The man in question previously had a restraining order against him which had ended two weeks ago, it has been reported.
He had allegedly recently made contact with Harwick before her death.
Police arrested the doctor’s former lover Gareth Pursehouse hours after her death and booked him for murder, TMZ reports.
They had reviewed CCTV footage in Harwick’s neighborhood and believe the suspect was a white male wearing black.
Detectives say there was evidence of forced entry into the victim’s home and signs of a struggle inside.
Comedian and actor Drew Carey – known for hosting Whose Line Is It Anyway and The Price is Right – began dating Harwick in 2017.
The couple became engaged in early 2018 before splitting less than a year later.
