According to a statement, inside the report, given to the coroner's office by an LA Sheriff's deputy -- new details emerged about the time leading up to Amie's death.

The officer claims Amie's "male roommate was awoken by sounds of a female screaming. He was able to tell the screaming was coming from up above his residence and could hear sounds of some type of physical fight; he then realized that it was (Amie) screaming. He began looking for his cellphone in his residence to phone 911, however, was unable to locate it. He was unable to get into the front house and then hopped over a wrought iron fence to get to the front of the house. He then began banging on the neighbor's doors in an effort to get help and to have someone phone 911, however, no one answered their doors."

The roommate advised that she had not been there when he had come from his own residence at the sound of her screams."
