Police now believe Alhambra woman found hanging in bedroom was suicide **Updated

Updated 11.10.11

Investigators now believe that the cause of death for a woman found hanging in her W. Hellman bedroom on Sunday morning was a suicide. Initial reports from the coroner's office thought there was a potential for head trauma, Alhambra Police Department Detective Efren Tamayo told the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.

Based on that, the woman's boyfriend was named a person of interest. He no longer is under investigation.

An Alhambra woman, Elizabeth Setiawan, 38, was found hanging in her bedroom on W. Hellman Avenue in the early hours of Sunday morning. A man, who the Contra Costa Times reports identified himself as her boyfriend of six years, had contacted authorities and is now a person of interest in the investigation.

When authorities arrived at the scene, they reportedly found a man holding Setiawan. Attempts to revive her when she was cut down were unsuccessful. Despite indications of being a suicide, Craig Harvey, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County Department of the Coroner, told the San Gabriel Tribune there are other injuries that are inconsistent with suicide such as blunt force trauma to the body.

"The subject is cooperating with the investigation and this time is not under arrest," police said, according to the Contra Costa times. "His name is being withheld pending further investigation."

The Chinese-language press issued conflicting reports Monday on the ethnicity of the victim. China Press reported that the owner said the woman and her boyfriend were from Malaysia, World Journal said she was Indonesian of Chinese heritage, and Sing Tao Daily reported that she was Chinese. 

Alhambra police detectives asked anyone with any information regarding the death to call them at (626) 570-5162.

On Tuesday, Sing Tao Daily reported that she was Indonesian, according to her last name and police.
