Officers from the Ypsilanti Police Department are investigating the death of a Peninsular Place resident as a possible suicide.
According to a press release from the YPD, a 21-year-old Ypsilanti woman was found deceased in her apartment in the 900 block of Railroad Street at 4:35 a.m. Friday.
The release said the deceased was despondent after a mutual breakup with her boyfriend. After no contact from her for several days, family and friends called police to the apartment complex for a welfare check of the resident.
According to the release, the woman was found dead in her bed and medication was found at the scene, indicating a possible overdose.
There were no signs of foul play, and an autopsy will be performed by the Washtenaw County Medical Examiner.
Lt. Deric Gress of the YPD said the woman was not an Eastern Michigan University student, and according to an AnnArbor.com article the deceased had one roommate.
Gress told AnnArbor.com the information was released to the public because of the Julia Niswender homicide case and growing concern within the community. Niswender was found dead at her Peninsular Place apartment Dec.11, and the investigation is ongoing.
The YPD press release said by all indications this case is a completely separate incident, and is in no way connected to the Niswender investigation. According to AnnArbor.com, the YPD released the information about the potential suicide to make it clear there was no relationship between the two cases.
“We wanted to make sure that everyone knew this was not any part or related to Julia’s death investigation,” Gress told AnnArbor.com.
No comments have been issued by anyone from Peninsular Place apartments at this time.
