Los Angeles County sheriff's Det. Mark Lillienfeld donned gloves before removing the gun from an envelope because of the blood still on it. He used photographs to point out a holster in an open drawer of a bureau near the spot where Lana Clarkson's body was found was slumped in Spector's foyer. The holster was later shown to fit the gun, Lillienfeld said.
Clarkson, 40, died from a shot fired with the gun in her mouth early on Feb. 3, 2003. She had accompanied Spector to his Alhambra mansion after meeting him at her job as a hostess at the House of Blues just hours earlier.
Prosecutor Pat Dixon had Lillienfeld point out in the photographs a leopard-print purse that hung over Clarkson's right shoulder. Her right hand rested atop the purse, which sat on the floor.
The coroner who conducted Clarkson's autopsy and ruled her death a homicide testified previously that the presence of the purse on her shoulder was one of the non-medical observations that led him to rule out suicide.
Spector, 67, rose to fame with the hit-making "Wall of Sound" recording technique in the 1960s. Clarkson was best known for her role in the 1985 movie "Barbarian Queen."
