  • Closure in death case hinges on test results



    Before investigators declare the fatal Aug. 29 shooting of a Radcliff divorcee an act of suicide, homicide or something else, results from gunshot residue swabs and other forensic tests must be made available.

    Radcliff police found recently-divorced Idella Pitts, 49, still alive but dying in a running car parked in her Scenic Drive garage at about 10 a.m. that Sunday.

    Suffering from a gunshot to the head, Pitts was flown to a Louisville trauma unit.
