Evansville Police continue to investigate the deadly fall from the 6th floor of this parking garage at Casino Aztar in downtown Evansville.
"We don't know why they were in the garage. We don't believe that they actually entered the casino at any point. So we're not sure why they were there, if it was a pre-planned trip, they went there for specific purpose, were not sure about that," Sgt. Jason Cullum said.
Detectives are now treating the death of 19-year-old Natalie Kamp as a suicide. Police say she was a USI student. On Wednesday afternoon, police say she was at the parking garage with 23-year-old Eric Stucker. Authorities believe the two knew each other, but nothing indicated there was a disagreement or fight before Kamp died.
"If somebody goes over the wall down there, there has to be some type of effort, be it by that person or somebody else pushing them. It's not something that we would expect somebody just to accidentally trip over," Sgt. Cullum said.
Sgt. Cullum says surveillance video helped piece everything together. A silver four-door Saturn was seen leaving the garage at the time of the incident.
"They arrived in the vehicle together. During the investigation, we determined that the that car left the scene was actually registered to Ms. Kamp and that Mr. Stucker was driving it, when it left the scene. He had an active felony warrant for an unrelated matter. We think that that's why he didn't stick around," Sgt. Cullum said.
Stucker was questioned and arrested Wednesday night on an unrelated charge, for contempt of court. Police are still talking with him, but say there is no foul play. An autopsy is scheduled for Thursday night. Stucker is not facing any charges relating to this case.
