The producer of the popular TV show 'Jerry Springer Show', Jill Blackstone has been detained for killing her deaf sister.

According to TMZ, police received a call Monday (March 17) from Blackstone saying there was a dead person and 3 dead dogs in her San Fernando Valley garage.

Blackstone told the police she thinks the person killed herself, but when authorities arrived they thought the suicide note looked suspicious and believe it was written by Jill, herself.

The victim, Wendy Blackstone, was 49 years old and lived in Studio City. We're told the body showed no outward signs of trauma and the coroner is carrying out a toxicology report.

Blackstone was being held on $1 million bail. She was released late Wednesday afternoon.  A law enforcement source said the case was sent back to the LAPD for further investigation.

Blackstone has produced other television hits such as 'Dr. Drew,' 'The Real,' 'Sharon Osbourne', 'Sally Jessy Raphael' and 'Rosie' and various court shows.
