Marshall County Authorities Investigate Culver Suicide


The Marshall County Coroner’s Office and Police Department are investigating an apparent Tuesday afternoon suicide in a Culver cemetery. Deputy Coroner Bridgett Hite says Margurite C. Quimby, 56, of Claypool, telephoned the 911 dispatch center, told them she was going to take her own life, and hung up. Dispatchers tried unsuccessfully to call her back and sent officers to Poplar Grove Church just east of Culver on State Road 10. Officers found Quimby’s body in the cemetery behind the church. Quimby left a note in her car with information as to who to contact, according to Hite, who says foul play is not suspected. Quimby’s family has been notified.
