Coroner: Wynn executive’s death ruled accidental from hitting head

The February death of a Wynn Las Vegas executive was an accident, the Clark County Coroner’s Office said Friday.

Sharla Perry, the 41-year-old director of Wynn’s VIP services, died of blunt force trauma to the head from a fall or collapse, the coroner’s office said.

Officials also said contributing factors in the death included acute ethanol and isopropanol intoxication and chronic ethanol abuse.

Perry was found dead about 7:30 p.m. Feb. 11 inside the Turnberry Towers on Karen Avenue, near Paradise Road and Sahara Avenue, police said.

Officials initially said the death may have been suspicious, but added there were no obvious signs of trauma.

Police said Perry’s mother called authorities to perform a welfare check after her daughter had not shown up to work for several days.
