The Franklin County Coroner has ruled the death of a local community activist a suicide. 

The body of 28-year-old Amber Evans was recovered from the Scioto River in March. She was reported missing in January after a dispute with her boyfriend.  The autopsy shows the activist with the People's Justice Project drowned after taking cold medications.  

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
