Really sad to hear this.

Coming as it is just at the end of lockdown, it is hard to imagine what this individual was going through to make this ultimate decision. RIP and condolences to her nearest and dearest. Also very hard for the individual who discovered the remains.

Thank you for the update to this news, too often we are left in the dark after the initial reports.

> The coroner's office found that the woman had died from multiple blunt force trauma due to what it described as an unwitnessed descent from height.

How did the victim initially get to that building height? Is there an easily accessible second tier or balcony on that theater building?

And weren't theaters closed during the pandemic or was limited attendance permitted!
