Janet Reno, the first woman to serve as U.S. attorney general and the epicenter of several political storms during the Clinton administration, has died. She was 78. Reno died from complications of Parkinson's disease. A niece of Reno's, Daphne Webb, later confirmed her death to NBC News. Webb said Reno spent her final days at home in Miami surrounded by family and friends. One of the administration's most recognizable and polarizing figures, Reno faced criticism early in her tenure for the deadly raid on the Branch Davidian compound at Waco, Texas, where sect leader David Koresh and some 80 followers perished. She was known for deliberating slowly, publicly and in a typically blunt manner. Reno frequently told the public 'the buck stops with me,' borrowing the mantra from President Harry Truman.
