A homicide investigation that involved the death of a teenager in May, has now been ruled a suicide, Kissimmee police officials said.
According to a Kissimmee Police Department press release, just before 7 p.m. on May 19, KPD received a 911 call from the Country Life Family Mobile Home Park.
A male caller was checking on his friend, 17-year-old, Coralis Enid Remigio Rivera at her mobile home on Roscoe Drive. When he entered the home, he found Rivera dead inside.
Due to the circumstances surrounding Rivera’s death, police investigators treated the case as a homicide investigation.
However, as the investigation unfolded, detectives learned Rivera was expressing suicidal thoughts in her journal and may have taken her own life, the press release stated.
The Orange-Osceola Medical Examiners Office has since officially ruled her death a suicide. In conjunction with its ruling, and KPD’s investigative efforts, the case has been closed.
