Police Investigate Death of Woman in Boarding Home [UPDATE]
An autopsy is being conducted today on the body of a woman who died in her room at a boarding house. The woman was a mother of two who lived in the unit with her husband. Police have now changed the way they're looking at this case.
Officers found the body of 33-year-old Shawna Jones Thursday afternoon in her third floor room at the Brunswick House in Rockland. According to the BDN, Jones lived there with her husband, Sean Jones, and had two children who lived with their father. She worked a short distance away at the Rockland Cafe.
The Cafe owner told the BDN that Jones last worked on Monday, but called in sick on Tuesday. When she failed to show up for work on Thursday, he called the boarding home and asked that someone check on her. That's when her body was discovered.
An autopsy on Jones' body was conducted today by the State Medical Examiner's office. Additional tests are needed to determine how she died, but police say they no longer consider this death suspicious.
