Former Ruffalo Suspect Was Hairdresser's Client
The woman who was arrested and released in connection with the death of Mark Ruffalo's brother Scott was a client of the hairdresser, it has emerged.
Shaha Mishaal Adham handed herself in to cops on Monday (08Dec08) after a warrant was issued for her arrest.
Scott Ruffalo, 39, was found outside his home in Beverly Hills with a gunshot wound to the head last week (01Dec08). He died in hospital on Monday after he was taken off life support.
Adham was subsequently released from custody on Tuesday (09Dec08) after her lawyer Ronald Richards presented evidence that Ruffalo had accidentally shot himself in the head in a game of Russian Roulette.
And Richards has now confirmed that Adham was one of the now-deceased stylist's customers.
He tells Access Hollywood: "He was her hairdresser. They knew each for a year."
Adham was at Ruffalo's home to collect her car keys, and fled when he shot himself.
When asked if Adham called the police after the shooting, Richards said the 26-year-old did not because "she was given bad advice from her boyfriend," but later called authorities.
