GREENWICH - Hundreds lined up today to pay their respects to a Greenwich High School sophomore who the medical examiner says took her own life this weekend.

Friends say Josie Day, 16, was a track star at the school.

She was adopted from her native Haiti by a Greenwich family several years ago and had been working with Save the Children to raise money to send back to her village.

Funeral services will be held tomorrow at First Church of Round Hill at 4 p.m.
