I'm not a crime scene investigator but something isn't right in calling this an apparent suicide. There is no report of a note. No reports of any depression. The woman ordered room service around midnight (and was reported missing about 9 AM)... did she want to make sure she wasn't hungry as she froze to death in the frigid Alaskan waters? Or was she so unhappy with the quality of the food that it drove her to jump overboard?

I can understand the cruise line wanting to call this a suicide... but why would the reporter buy that without any evidence supporting that claim?

And it is nitpicking, but people committing suicide haven't 'fallen overboard' as much as they've 'jumped overboard'.
