After the woman did not turn herself in, so they stopped by her home the next morning. No one answered the door.

The woman's boyfriend and friend attended the home shortly afterwards. They found her in the shed.
Acting Director Joseph Martino says they have ruled her death a suicide.
"The evidence indicates the woman's death was solely the result of a suicidal act, and therefore there is patently nothing further to investigate as far as any potential criminal liability on the part of any police officers is concerned in connection with her death. As such, I have terminated the investigation into this incident."
