Mississippi police: Colorado Springs woman's hanging

Police in Philadelphia, Mississippi, say no foul play is suspected in the death of a Colorado Springs woman whose body was found hanging from a tree on Saturday.

Police Chief Dickie Sistrunk tells The Neshoba Democrat that an autopsy report shows the death of Donna Giao Dao, 34, of Colorado Springs, was "consistent with suicide."

The body was spotted about 6:30 a.m. Saturday by a passing motorist.

Sistrunk says Dao had apparently come to Neshoba County from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where she had been working in a nail salon, to gamble at Pearl River Resort.

Sistrunk says he was contacted by her employer who had heard about her death in news media reports.
