Eagles' Randy Meisner's Crazy Tale Of Accidental Shooting Proven By Videotape

Amy Feinstein

The story of the accidental shooting death of Lana Rae Meisner, wife of Eagles bassist Randy Meisner, sounded crazy and unbelievable, and it was hard to imagine how and why Los Angles police believed that the shooting death, on the heels of a domestic abuse 911 call, could possibly be an accident. But now we know it was because the shooting was caught on tape by surveillance cameras that were all around the Meisner home.

According to the Inquisitr, the situation surrounding the shooting death of Lana Rae Meisner, wife of Eagles musician Randy Meisner, seemed to reach the pinnacle of crazy when the LAPD released a statement that said that Meisner was killed when cowboy spurs fell out of a box, struck the trigger of a gun in the closet, and shot Lana Rae Meisner in the head, killing her instantly. To many people following the story, this seemed impossible to believe.

After the police were told that the cameras in every room in the house were functional, they asked for the tapes, and former Eagle Randy Meisner handed them over, just before he was taken to the hospital where he is being kept on a psych hold.

"She was shot in the head, and it was a gruesome death scene," said the insider. "Even the most seasoned cops were stunned by the damage the gun did to her head. It went everywhere."

A detective who met with the Meisners earlier in the day after the domestic violence 911 call, left without charging either party, because they claimed it was an every day marital squabble, and did not require additional police intervention. With the videotape, the LAPD was able to determine that Randy Meisner was not in the room when Lana Meisner was shot.

"There will never be any charges in this case and it has been decided that it was an accidental death."

Randy Meisner, who in addition to mental illness, also had a prior heart attack, and in the past, was allegedly afraid of his wife, Lana Meisner, and had called 911 on domestic abuse calls, according to court documents. The records detail over six events of such abuse.

"He [Meisner] called the police who asked Lana to leave the home and Randy said in a statement that he was left 'shaking' and 'extremely concerned' and 'afraid' that she would return and continue to attack him."

Randy Meisner tried to secretly get an order keeping Lana Meisner away from his home.

"She has a place to live with her mother, and she has perpetuated physical violence upon me. I am afraid that if Lana gets notice of this application prior to the restraining order, that she will come to the home and become enraged and perhaps kill me."

Do you think Randy Meisner will remain in the psychiatric hospital?
