NEW YORK (AP) — The family of a Connecticut woman shot to death by police following a car chase near the White House and the Capitol has identified her body.
District of Columbia medical examiner's office spokeswoman Beverly Fields said Friday that Miriam Carey's cause of death was pending. She won't say whether Carey's body has been released to her family.
Attorney Eric Sanders represents Carey's family in New York. He says in a Facebook post the family will speak publicly at the Brooklyn home of Carey's sister when it returns from Washington. Sanders hasn't returned phone calls seeking further comment.
Authorities say Carey set off a high-speed car chase that put the Capitol on lockdown Thursday. They say she was shot after trying to breach a barrier at the White House.
