Stratford Man's Family Disputes Suicide Finding

STRATFORD, Conn. (AP) _ The fiancee and mother of a Connecticut man found dead in a car submerged in the Housatonic River in Stratford are disputing a ruling by the medical examiner’s office that he killed himself.

The body of 22-year-old Garrett Moss-Grimes of Stratford was found last week in the submerged car. The medical examiner’s office determined he drowned in a suicide.

His mother, Gwen Moss-Clarke, told the Connecticut Post there was no way he would leave behind his fiancee, Bianca Davila, and their child.

Davila told the newspaper the suicide ruling didn’t make sense, and noted that the car was found near a boat ramp where the couple would often park and talk. She wondered if he fell asleep there and if high tide pulled the car into the water.

Police say they’re still investigating.
