Her death is no longer suspicious, but now considered a homicide. I never even realised that the New Glasgow Police HAD a Major Crime unit, though of course they would. I had just never really thought about it before. Though it's unlikely, I hope there's a wake or something before I go back to school.
Rest in peace, Jamie-Lynn, and I hope they find out what the hell happened.
