'Suspicious death' was due to natural causes
Bainbridge Island officials said the suspicious death of a woman that was under investigation by Bainbridge police has been ruled to be a death by natural causes.
Bainbridge officials said an autopsy performed Monday by the Kitsap County Coroner’s Office showed the deceased woman "expired as a result of natural causes pending further review."
The woman was identified as Susan Martin, 54.
Police were called to the 900 block of Madison Avenue on Saturday, Sept. 14 after a 911 call.
Officials said the home was in disarray, which raised questions regarding the manner of death.
Detectives from the Bainbridge Island Police Department, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office and a Washington State Patrol crime scene team responded to the residence to investigate.
