The death of the 88-year-old Trenton woman whose body washed ashore in Trenton earlier this month was ruled a suicide.

The official cause of death was drowning, according to a statement released Tuesday by the Maine Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.

Her body was found on the shore adjacent to the Oak Point Road in Trenton at about 9:40 a.m. June 18. It was originally reported as being on the mudflats off Goose Cove, according to the Hancock County Sheriff’s Office, which handled the discovery of the body.
