CLEARWATER -- A 50-year-old woman fell 20 stories to her death from a Sand Key condominium early Friday morning in what appears to be a suicide, Clearwater police said.
The woman jumped from the balcony of her unit at Lighthouse Towers Condominiums, 1290 Gulf Blvd., at about 12:07 a.m. Friday. She landed on grass and was killed, police said.
Police said all signs indicate the jump was a suicide.
