FORMER RADIO SHOW HOST, DAUGHTER FOUND STRANGLED IN GARY.



Authorities are expected to release new information Monday afternoon after a former radio talk show host and her daughter were found strangled Sunday night in incorporated Gary, Indiana.


The Lake County Sheriff's Department found both Velia Taneff, 86, and her 63-year-old daughter, Lana Taneff, strangled on Sunday night. Deputies found the daughter at home and her mother at a next door rental property they owned.

Friends of Velia Taneff said the outspoken former radio talk show host was not your average 86-year-old. In fact, she had recently begun video blogging.

Verlie Suggs, her former manager at WLTH radio, had known Velia Taneff for more than a decade.

"We've been telling Velia for years, it was time to sell this house and just to move out, it's too much house," Suggs said.

Authorities said both women had ligature marks on their necks. The manner of death in both cases was ruled a homicide, the coroner's office said.

"It took me 30 minutes to just really understand what happened. I think it's tragic," said Natalie Hammons, a friend.

"It's devastating, it's devastating, but sadly it doesn't surprise me because we told her to leave this place. Her daughter had cancer and had been suffering," Suggs said.

A sheriff's department spokesman would only say there was no imminent danger to the community.

Lake County Sheriff John Buncich plans to hold a press conference on the double homicide at 3 p.m. Monday.
