MEDICAL EXAMINER RULES WOMAN'S DEATH A SUICIDE

A woman whose body was found Monday morning hanging from the rafters at an abandoned residence in Estate Lerkenlund took her own life, according to the St. Thomas medical examiner.
Dr. Francisco Landron, who performed the autopsy Tuesday on the body of Keri Grieco, said all indicators were consistent with suicide.
"There was no sign of trauma to the body other than those which have indicated this was a suicide case," he said.
Asked about reports that foul play was not ruled out Monday by police, Landron said his autopsy disspelled that possibility.
However, he said tissue and body fluids were sent off-island for testing, which is a normal procedure. "The results of the toxicology won't be known for at least a week or two," Landron added.
Police were called to the residence in Hull Bay about mid-morning Monday after Greico's body was discovered. Reports indicated Greico was in her 20s.
