FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (CBSNewYork) – The FBI is now investigating a possible murder aboard a cruise ship that was headed to Aruba.
The Royal Princess returned to Florida Saturday after the death of a 52-year-old American woman.
The passenger died Tuesday morning after reportedly plunging from the upper level of the ship down to a lifeboat boat several decks below.
“I’m shocked that it happened on the ship I was on. We felt bad for the victim obviously,” a fellow passenger said.
Authorities told CBS News the woman’s husband has voluntarily stayed behind in Aruba and is not considered a suspect.
A spokesperson for the prosecutor in Aruba says an autopsy on the woman has been performed, but those results have not been released.
