Police investigate body in apartment

Updated: The Royal Cayman Islands Police Service has confirmed that a dead woman found in a George Town apartment Saturday was the apparent victim of a suicide.  

She was identified Monday as 43-year Australian citizen who was resident in the Cayman Islands with her husband and children.

At about 11.55am Saturday, a concerned citizen at the Sunrise apartment complex on Old Crewe road in George Town called the emergency services after reportedly smelling a strong odour coming from one of the apartments, police said.

Fire and police officers attended, where they gained access to the apartment. The body of the deceased female was seen hanging from a bedroom door, police said.

Investigators said there was nothing at the scene to suggest any foul play, although they are awaiting the results of a  postmortem examination to determine the exact cause of death.

Family of the deceased have been notified, police said.
