Parents of Suspect in Maran Murder Sue L.A.P.D.

   The parents of the 17-year-old girl who allegedly killed Santa Monica High School sophomore Deanna Maran in November 2001 have filed a wrongful death claim against the Los Angeles Police Department.
   Katrina Sarkissian was taken into custody the morning after Maran was fatally stabbed at a party at a Westwood home. Sarkissian was being questioned by LAPD when she passed out and was pronounced dead later that day. According the an autopsy, Sarkissian had overdosed on antidepressants prior to being questioned by police.
   The claim was filed in early May on behalf of Sarkissian’s parents, Angelique and Sarkis Sarkissian. They claim their daughter would have survived had police called for paramedics immediately after she passed out.
   The claim says that police thought Sarkissian was having a seizure, and did not act promptly.
   The half-sister of Katrina Sarkissian was arraigned last month on a count of battery and one count of making a criminal threat in connection with Maran’s death
