83Washington_ME.jpgNew Rochelle police have arrested Donna Frank on an outstanding warrant after Frank called in a report of a death at 83 Washington Avenue but refused to return to the scene. Police believe Frank fled after discovering the body of Maureen Wright, 58, a tenant living on the first floor of the multiple-family house at the corner of Washington Avenue and Warren Street near Sound Shore Medical Center.

Police said there was no sign of blunt trauma or anything to indicate anything other than natural causes. The Westchester County Medical Examiner was called to the scene. After a preliminary examination, the Medical Examiner removed the body. The ME will make the final determination as to cause of death.
