Woman Leaps To Death
By Joan Ward George
Police from the 100 Precinct were called to the scene of an apparent suicide at 9 a.m. Thursday morning, June 8. According to a police spokesperson, a 90-year-old woman apparently jumped to her death from the terrace of her ninth floor apartment, of 8600 Shore Front parkway, while her adult son was asleep in his bedroom in another area of the apartment.
As The Wave went to press Thursday detectives from the 100 Precinct were withholding the woman’s name as all of her relatives had not as yet been notified. Although police are working on the assumption that the woman took her own life, the incident is still under investigation.
