LOS ANGELES – The Latest on the murder-suicide at UCLA (all times local):
Minnesota authorities have officially identified a woman found dead during the investigation of this week's UCLA murder-suicide as the wife of campus gunman Mainak Sarkar (MY'-nahk SUR'-kahr).
The Hennepin County medical examiner says the body found Thursday in a Brooklyn Park residence was 31-year-old Ashley Erin Hasti and she died of multiple gunshot wounds.
Police say Hasti was legally married to Sarkar but had been separated for some time and lived separately.
Officers found a broken window where they believe Sarkar entered Hasti's home to commit the crime. Police say they had no previous calls concerning Hasti or Sarkar.
Sarkar fatally shot his former UCLA professor, Bill Klug, to death on Wednesday and then killed himself.
A relative says a Minnesota woman who was killed by her estranged husband before he fatally shot a UCLA professor was a world traveler and close to becoming a doctor.
Jean Johnson, the grandmother of victim Ashley Hasti, said Friday that Hasti was smart and spent her late teens and early 20s visiting China, India and Tibet.
She spoke fluent Chinese and knew French. She also dabbled in stand-up comedy.
Johnson said the 31-year-old Hasti was a year away from finishing medical school at the University of Minnesota and hoped to work with children.
Johnson said Hasti met Mainak Sarkar while she was studying at Scripps College in Claremont, California, in 2009 and 2010, when he was a student at UCLA.
Hasti was found dead in her Twin Cities-area home on Thursday, a day after her estranged husband, Mainak Sarkar, gunned down a UCLA professor on the school's campus before killing himself.
