Suicide victim at Riviera identified

The woman who jumped to her death from the 20th floor of the Riviera on Sunday has been identified.

She is Karla R. Ostrowsky, 48, of Las Vegas, the Clark County coroner’s office said. The coroner’s could not release her official cause of death, but her death was classified as a suicide by Las Vegas police.

Ostrowsky was found dead near a pool area at the property at 2901 Las Vegas Boulevard South about 11:30 a.m., according to police.

The hotel-casino closed after 60 years on May 4. A liquidation sale is being conducted by the National Content Liquidators and has been taking place since May 14.

New security measures for the sale were put in place Monday by the hotel’s security. Visitors will be required to sign in, wear a wristband and sign out, NCL spokesman Don Hayes said.
