Missing Spartanburg Co. woman's death ruled suicide

SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Nearly three months after her skeletal remains were found by hunters, the death of a missing Spartanburg County woman has been ruled a suicide.

Deputies said that 20-year-old Crystal Freeman was last seen on May 2 at a home on Midland Drive. At that time, deputies said Freeman was being treated for depression.

On Sept. 14, two hunters found Freeman's remains in a wooded area along Highway 11 in Fingerville. Deputies said that the hunters were checking on their tree stands in the area when they found a skeleton at the base of a tree about 200 yards inside the woods.

"I'm not going to say that this is a murder, a suicide, anything like that until I'm a million percent sure.  We got a lot of work to do," said Spartanburg County Sheriff Chuck Wright at the time Freeman's remains were found.

Spartanburg County Coroner Rusty Clevenger said he met with Freeman's parents and Wright on Thursday, and informed them that Freeman's death had been ruled a suicide.
