Police Won’t Charge Woman Said Helped Friend Jump Off International Bridge
DETROIT (AP) _ A woman who allegedly helped another woman jump off a bridge in a suicide pact will not be charged in her friend’s death, say Canadian authorities.
The woman stopped her car on the Ambassador Bridge between Detroit and Windsor, Ontario, on April 8 so that her friend, a 24-year-old Northville woman, could jump, police said.
The Northville woman’s body was found Saturday off the Windsor shore. Police did not release the names of either woman.
Windsor Police Sgt. Reg Chevalier said Monday that the driver, from suburban Dearborn Heights, told police she had talked about a suicide pact with her friend, but didn’t believe they would go through with it.
Both women had been under psychiatric care at the Michigan Osteopathic Medical Center in Detroit, police said.
