The father of Erica Blasberg breaks his silence for the first time since the sudden and mysterious death of the 25-year-old, and has the exclusive interview.

“No one is doing well,” Mel Blasberg told

”Anybody losing a child is going to grieve and when you have a child who was doing so many things and affecting so many people it’s that much worse.

“We’re no different than anybody else but probably magnified a little bit.”

Erica’s agent Chase Callahan says authorities are still baffled by Erica’s death earlier this month inside her suburban Las Vegas home.

“It’s still a mystery,” Callahan told

“We haven’t gotten any facts from the police department, other than it’s an ongoing investigation. We know that they’re still investigating.”

Blasberg’s body was discovered on May 9 inside her three-bedroom home in Henderson, Nevada.

Celebrity Death

While police have not discounted suicide, Callahan insisted that the golfer would “absolutely not” take her own life.

The Clark County Coroner’s office told that there is no new information at this time.

“This was a happy, fun-loving girl,” he said.

“I just have been kind of waiting for the investigation to play out and we’ll go from there because whatever the result is it’s not going to bring her back.”

Callahan also rejected reports the golfer had been hanging around with the wrong crowd.

“Not at all,” he said.

“Erica was somebody who would casually drink and for as long as I’ve known her has never done any drugs... that’s absolutely not Erica.

“The people she hung around with were people of high net worth.”
