UPDATE: 8/16/13 – A body that has been found in Staten Island near Victory Boulevard and Morani Street on Thursday has been confirmed to belong to missing Megan Marotte.
Police said there were “no obvious signs of trauma and the cause of death will be determined by the Medical Examiner’s Office.”
Multiple law enforcement sources, speaking on the condition of anonymity, told the Advance that her body was found unclothed from the waist down, report Staten Island Live.
Megan, who was pregnant, was to appear in court on August 26 to answer to a charge that she crashed into a fence at Angels’ Circle 9/11 memorial and she was driving impaired at the time.
An uncle suggested that it was a suicide, but no more details of why he came to that conclusion.
A positive ID and cause of death is pending.
