Judge Found Dead in Park after Dispute
A local judge apparently killed himself in Towsley Canyon Park just a day after sheriff’s deputies swarmed his Valencia home, seized his guns and told him to drive away following a domestic dispute.
Lloyd Jeffrey Wiatt, 61, a Los Angeles Superior Court judge, died at 3:30 p.m. Thursday from an apparent gunshot wound to the head, a coroner’s investigator said.
Wiatt was a judge at the Chatsworth Courthouse since 2003. Before that, he held office at the San Fernando Courthouse, where he had made some controversial rulings.
