A man contacted police at about 12:38 p.m. and reported seeing a person on the floor inside a home in the 140 block of Southeast 17th Terrace. The man told police that he was asked by his girlfriend to check on her roommate, who is also her co-worker, because the woman had not yet shown up for work.

The woman was pronounced dead at the scene.
“The death is not suspicious,” Connie Barron, police spokeswoman, said.
She added that the woman’s death is “mostly likely self-inflicted.”
