EAST HAMPTON, N.Y. (AP) - A Hispanic advocacy group is asking for an investigation into the death of a woman found hanged in the woods on Long Island last year.

Newsday says (https://nwsdy.li/1PRVY57 ) New York City-based LatinoJustice sent a letter Thursday to Town of East Hampton Supervisor Larry Cantwell.

The letter says the Sept. 29, 2014 death of 21-year-old Andrea Armijos, of East Hampton, should receive more scrutiny.

She was found in the woods a month after arriving on Long Island from Ecuador. Officials deemed her death a suicide.

The letter says town police immediately treated the death as a suicide without exploring the possibility of foul play.

The group called on the Suffolk County Police Department to investigate.

Cantwell declined comment pending a review of the letter by the town’s attorney and the police.
