Family questions suicide ruling in loved one's death
A New Rochelle family is calling the actions of police into question after their loved one was found dead.
Margarita Barragan, a 34-year-old mother of three, was found dead Friday night in a Queens motel. Police ruled the death a suicide, but Barragan?s family says she never would have left her husband and children behind.
New Rochelle police say Barragan didn?t fit the criteria of a missing person when she disappeared because her husband told police she left the house voluntarily. However, the family says police should have done more to find her.
Barragan?s family members also say Barragan didn't have a car and they wonder how she got to Queens alone. She sold jewelry and the family believes Barragan went to collect an overdue debt in New Rochelle the day she disappeared.
The NYPD says Barragan?s toxicology report is pending.
