Shortly before Randy Meisner called police to report his wife had been killed, Lana called 911 to report domestic abuse, according to TMZ.

Meisner was a founding member of The Eagles in the early 70s and initially left the band in 1977 citing “exhaustion.” The last time he performed with The Eagles during the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction back 1998.

The bassist is best known for co-writing and singing the Eagles hit “Take It to the Limit.” The tragedy follows the death of Eagles founder Glen Frey less than two months ago.
