Man no longer ‘person of interest’ in Alhambra woman’s death

ALHAMBRA — The investigation into the death of an Alhambra woman found hanged in an apartment remains ongoing, authorities said Wednesday, however the woman’s boyfriend is no longer considered a person of interest in the investigation as evidence supporting suicide mounts.
Elizabeth Setiawan, 38, was pronounced dead shortly after midnight Sunday after she was discovered hanging and unresponsive in an apartment at 1121 W. Hellman Ave., Los Angeles County Department of coroner’s officials said.
A coroner’s investigator initially noted some anomalies in Setiawan’s eyes that were possibly consistent with head trauma, Detective Efren Tamayo of the Alhambra Police Department said.
Based on that observation, he said, police named the woman’s boyfriend as a “person of interest” as they probed the death as a possible homicide, Tamayo said.
After further investigation, the detective said, “It’s leaning toward being a suicide.”
Setiawan’s officials cause of death remained under investigation as coroner’s officials awaited the results of toxicology tests, officials said.
