(NEW YORK) — The body of fashion designer L’Wren Scott has been released to a funeral home after authorities confirmed Wednesday that she hanged herself, ABC News has confirmed.
Scott, 47, was found dead on Monday in her Manhattan apartment.
The NYC Medical Examiner’s Office said it completed the autopsy and determined Scott committed suicide by hanging.
