Shawn King, wife of Larry King, left suicide note after overdose

A police report recorded after Shawn King’s May 28th drug overdose has been obtained by TMZ and posted.

Shawn King’s father called 911 that day to report that King was breathing but that he was unable to wake her at their home in Provo, Utah. Police in Provo say two handwritten notes were found at the scene, and that one of the notes indicated that King wished to be buried in Provo. Provo police have disclosed the large number of prescriptions found near the unresponsive woman, and say that the prescription bottles were empty, even though the scripts had only recently been refilled:

Among the prescriptions by at the home of Larry King’s wife: Compro, Prometrium, Clonazepam, Ambien, Klonopin, Subutex, Cymbalta and Lyrica.

Subutex is commonly used to treat narcotic addiction. Cymbalta is an anti-depressant, Lyrica is a seizuretreatment … Klonopin and Clonazepam are anti-anxiety meds.

Both Kings filed for divorce in April, but have recently stated that they are attempting to work on their marriage and reconcile.
