AUTHORITIES SAY WOMAN'S DEATH 'SUSPICIOUS'

0

Aug. 1, 2001 – The death last weekend of Jan Mary Hooper has been deemed "suspicious" after the medical examiner's report said she died of "multiple contusions to the back of the head."
Deputy Police Chief Novelle Francis said Wednesday afternoon that investigators were still going over "with a fine-tooth comb" evidence collected since Hooper was found dead in her ex-husband's home in Estate Catherine's Hope.
According to Francis, the medical examiner said the contusions could have been the result of Hooper being struck or somehow coming in contact with a blunt instrument.
He said the report was "inconclusive" and that the death has not been ruled a homicide.
