Jeanette Loff

Jeanette Loff (born Janette Clarinda Lov; 9th October 1906 – 4th August 1942) was an American actress, musician, and singer who came to prominence for her appearances in several Pathé Exchange and Universal Pictures films in the 1920s.
On August 1, 1942, Loff ingested ammonia at the Beverly Hills home she shared with husband Friedlob on 9233 Doheny Road. The ammonia ingestion caused severe chemical burns to her throat and mouth. She died three days later of ammonia poisoning on 4th August 1942, in Los Angeles.
The New York Times reported ( 6th August 1942) Loff had ingested the ammonia “on the coast,”and coroners were unable to determine whether she ingested ammonia either accidentally or intentionally. She had been suffering from a stomach ailment and may have accidentally taken the wrong bottle of medication. While Loff’s death could not be patently ruled either accident or suicide, her family maintained that she had been murdered.
