New Canaan police have released more information in an apparent suicide yesterday.
Police say the victim of a fatal shooting at 721 North Wilton Road yesterday was Heather Sturtz, 41, of Briarwood, New York.
Officers say Sturtz was on the property with a gun, threatening to kill herself. 
Police did rule her death a suicide, however, they are waiting for confirmation from the medical examiner's office. 
Sources tell News 12 Connecticut that Michael Kramer, the owner of the property, and his family were not in the country when this happened.
The Kramers returned late last night. They say Sturtz was a family friend and that they are deeply saddened by the incident.
