Shooting Death Ruled Suicide in Lower Macungie [UPDATE]

Lehigh County coroner says the manner of a death at a Brookstone Drive home was a suicide.

Monday morning's death in Lower Macungie Township at the location of a reported shooting fatality has been ruled a suicide, according to the Lehigh County coroner.

Coroner Scott Grim said Monday evening that a 32-year-old woman from Drexel Hill, Delaware County, was pronounced dead in an incident at 1698 Brookstone Drive. He ruled  the manner of death a suicide, but declined to offer further details.

Earlier in the day, state police Lt. Paul Gaspich confirmed that a shooting death had occurred at the residence. Yellow police tape outlined a police investigation perimeter at the townhome in the Heritage Heights development.

A report released Tuesday morning by state police at Fogelsville estimated the time of the suicide between 8:45 and 9:30 a.m. Police also said the woman lived at that address even though the coroner's office said she lived in Drexel Hill, Delaware County.

LisaM, why not state your full name on here? And why not ask why JJ'S is hiding behind initials? Oh, because you both suck and have no clue what you are talking about. Just bored and need something to talk about to make you feel better about your own pathetic existence?

The whole thing sounds fishy, maybe they should look at the Husband more clearly and his unstable background....

So sad and so suspicious. Well just the same, I heard congrats are in order to V. It is very exciting to become a daddy. Sure, just a few months after the 'suicide' but a baby will help the sorrow. It just seems the timing on this is odd. It still takes about 9 months correct?
