At 355pm MCHD and The Woodlands Fire Department were dispatched to a reported drowning in the 2800 block of Lake Front Circle in the East Shore Addition of The Woodlands. Emergency crews arrived within minutes to find a female next to the swimming pool. She was deceased. Detectives with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office were notified and responded to the scene along with a Montgomery County Assistant District Attorney. On the scene detectives did find a gun and now believe the female actually shot herself and fell into the pool. Lt. Brady Fitzgerald with the Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said the last time anyone heard from the woman was around 11am. Her husband returned home and saw what he thought to be a plastic bag in the pool. That’s when he discovered it was his wife. Brady said at this time it appears to be a suicide but that will also depend on the outcome of the autopsy. Eickenhorst Funeral Directors responded to the scene and transported the female to the Montgomery County Forensic Center.
Her name has not yet been released.
