Results pending in investigation of Va. woman’s death aboard cruise ship
Details regarding the suspicious death of a 64-year-old Virginia woman aboard a cruise ship that departed from Baltimore are expected to be released Thursday, FBI officials said.
The Midlothian, Va., woman’s husband found her unresponsive Sunday inside their Royal Caribbean cruise ship cabin as the vessel was returning to Baltimore from a weeklong cruise, a spokeswoman for the ship line said. The husband alerted crew members who tried to resuscitate the woman. She was pronounced dead on the ship.
Agents found “several unusual circumstances” as they investigated the woman’s death but have not determined whether there was any foul play, FBI spokesman Special Agent Richard Wolf said. The woman has not been publicly identified, but officials expect to release her name as well as additional details about the investigation into her death Thursday, Mr. Wolf said.
A spokesman for the Maryland office of the chief medical examiner said the woman’s cause and manner of death could be determined Wednesday, though it would be up to the investigating agency to release the information.
Officials would not elaborate on the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death as the investigation was continuing.
Crew members from the cruise ship, the Enchantment of the Seas, alerted investigators of the at-sea death, and agents met the ship as it docked in Baltimore on Monday morning. FBI officials processed the woman’s cabin for evidence and interviewed crew, passengers and the woman’s husband, Mr. Wolf said.
“Everyone was very cooperative, including the husband,” he said.
The woman and her husband were traveling together with no other friends or family members, Mr. Wolf said.
The ship had traveled to the Caribbean, stopping at Port Canaveral, Fla., and Nassau and CocoCay, Bahamas.
“We extend our most sincere and heartfelt condolences to the family and friends of the 64-year-old female guest from the United States who died while onboard Enchantment of the Seas,” Royal Caribbean said in a statement.
A spokeswoman declined to answer additional questions about the passenger’s death.
