Police identify woman who fell from Stonequist Apartments

Police confirmed that the woman who fell to her death from the sixth floor of Stonequist Apartments Friday night was Robin Lee Schelmbauer, 48. She lived in Stonequist.

Saratoga Springs Police Lt. Robert Jillson said preliminary medical examinations offer no indication of foul play and he said there is nothing suspicious about the death. He would not say immediately whether the police suspected the death was suicide or an accident.

The police blotter entry for the incident, however, indicates police were called to Stonequist for a "suicide attempt."
