A 21-year-old woman found at the base of a ledge in North Haven on Saturday afternoon is dead.
The medical examiner is trying to determine how the woman, Bria Gray, 21, died, but police said her injuries are consistent with a fall.
The land on Patten Road was being excavated for development and the owner of the small subdivision was showing a building lot to a perspective buyer when they discovered Gray lying on the ground and not moving, according to police.
North Haven Police and paramedics responded to the 911 call, which came in at 4:10 p.m., and found Gray, a resident of Patten Road, at the base of a rock ledge. Paramedics pronounced her dead at 4:26 p.m.
The Investigative Services Division of the North Haven Police Department and the Connecticut State Police Central District Major Crime Squad responded to the scene Saturday afternoon and officials said her injuries are consistent with falling from the ledge.
The office of the chief medical examiner is in the process of determining the cause of Gray’s death.
