There was no foul play involved in the death of a woman Chicago police found lying on a Streeterville sidewalk early Thursday morning, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

At 3:44 a.m., Chicago police officers found the 39-year-old woman lying in the 400 block of East Ohio. They initially suspected that she might have been hit by a car, and detectives launched a death investigation.

However, the medical examiner determined yesterday that she died from injuries sustained in a fall from height. The office ruled her death a suicide. The office said she lived in a nearby building.
