Family Challenges Suicide Ruling in Case of Woman Struck by Train

The family of a Stamford woman struck and killed by a train in Greenwich is challenging the medical examiner's ruling that she committed suicide, according to an attorney representing them.

Tamar Louis died Friday morning at the Cos Cob station in Greenwich. Officials with the Metropolitan Transit Authority said Louis dropped her wallet or purse on the tracks and was trying to pick it up when she was struck.

The chief medical examiner's office said Louis died of a blunt impact to her head and torso. Her death was ruled a suicide.

Louis' family is contesting that ruling and plans to conduct its own review of the incident, according to attorney Mark Sherman.

The collision remains under investigation.
