Phil Spector’s million-dollar bail has been extended through the end of next month, as investigators work to build a case against the legendary record producer. In February, B-movie actress Lana Clarkson was found dead at his L.A.-area mansion from a gunshot wound.
Spector, famous for his “Wall Of Sound” production in the ’60s for acts like the Ronettes and the Crystals, was arrested on suspicion of murder on February 3, though formal charges have yet to be filed. The Los Angeles sheriff’s department is still waiting for reports from its crime lab.
Since his arrest, Spector has claimed he is innocent and told Esquire magazine he believed Clarkson shot herself in an act of suicide, though investigators ruled that out in March, declaring that a criminal act had been committed.
