Death Of Woman In Church Parking Lot Ruled Suicide

OCEOLA TWP. (WWJ/AP) - Authorities in Livingston County say the death of a woman found shot in a vehicle parked in church parking lot has been ruled a suicide.

Authorities made the determination after the body of the 45-year-old woman from Genesee County's Argentine Township was found Monday at St. John Catholic Church in Oceola Township, about 45 miles northwest of Detroit.

The woman, whose name wasn't released, was found with a sweatshirt over her head and a single gunshot wound. Police say that wound was self-inflicted.

The Livingston County Sheriff's Department had investigated the death as suspicious after the woman's husband reported her missing Thursday.
