Suicide suspected in women’s death


As of press time, Carmel police were awaiting the results of an autopsy performed May 24 on the body of a female found in a storage facility the day before on North Range Line Road.

Carmel Police Lt. Jeff Horner said police were called to the Public Storage facility at 1099 N. Range Line Road around 4:30 p.m. on May 23 after employees of the facility discovered the body inside a car parked inside a storage unit there.

Employees entered the unit because they had not been able to contact the renter in a long time and wanted to survey the unit’s items for auction. They never suspected foul play before they entered the facility, Horner said.

The victim, who is believed to be in her thirties, was found sitting in the driver’s seat, and Horner said all sign’s point to an apparent suicide.

“But we won’t know a cause of death until after the autopsy,” he said.
