WILMINGTON, Del. (AP)- Delaware State Police say the death of a woman whose body was pulled from a river in Wilmington this summer has been ruled a homicide.
 
Authorities said Thursday that the Division of Forensic Science has officially classified the death of 50-year-old Susan M. Ledyard as a homicide due to blunt force trauma and drowning.
 
Ledyard's body was found in the Brandywine River near downtown Wilmington on July 23. Her car was found about three miles upstream near a bridge that spans the same river, roughly a mile (1.6 kilometers) from her home.
 
Investigators determined that Ledyard was texting and calling people up to about 2:45 a.m. that Tuesday. She left her house just after 3 a.m. and arrived about two minutes later at the spot where her car was found.
