NYPD Investigates Dead Woman In Subway Bathroom

NEW YORK (AP) — Police said a woman was found hanging by a rope from a water pipe inside a New York City subway station in an apparent suicide.

The woman was not identified pending family notification. The medical examiner will determine a cause of death.

Her body was found at around 2:45 p.m. Monday in a public bathroom at the Forest Hills stop in the borough of Queens, which serves four subway lines.

Another customer discovered the woman, and contacted a station agent who called police.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene. Police were investigating the incident.

    That;s why we need to burn books….only FICTION though, because fiction is not reality, and obviously, some people cannot deal with reality.

    Thank god she was dead! Can you imagine the indignity of being found ALIVE in an MTA subway bathroom?

  • Privatizeemployee

    That crusading Queens councilman should investigate why she was found by a customer and not by an MTA employee. It will liven up the story.

    • sa1234

      Privatizeemployee thats a dumb idea. It seems like you just want to bash MTA employees and not read the real story, Grow up already.
