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.
