The Fox 2 Detroit meteorologist who was reported dead on Thursday morning hanged herself, officials said.
Jessica Starr’s manner of death was ruled a suicide, a spokesperson from the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s Office told The Post on Friday. A representative from the Wixom Police Department would not provide more information on the incident, citing the ongoing investigation.
Starr, a 35-year-old from Novi, Michigan — about 30 miles northwest of Detroit — is survived by her husband, Dan, along with her 5-year-old son, Noah, and her 3-year-old daughter, Riley.
Fox 2 Detroit morning anchor Amy Andrews first announced Starr’s shocking suicide Thursday on Twitter.
“Our hearts are broken,” she wrote. “Last night we were informed our Jessica Starr took her life.
“Her Fox 2 family is deep shock and cannot believe such a wonderful, bright and intelligent woman is gone. Keep her family in your prayers in the coming days as we all deal with our grief.”
Starr got Lasik surgery in October and, prior to her suicide, spoke out publicly about her challenging recovery.
