Coroner Identifies Victim Who Committed Suicide In School Parking Lot

Sun City resident Roggena Hunsaker, 59, was pronounced dead at 8:04 a.m. today, according to the Riverside County Coroner’s Office.

A county library employee who apparently committed suicide inside a Toyota Corolla parked in a local high school lot has been identified.

Sun City resident Roggena Hunsaker, 59, was pronounced dead at 8:04 a.m. today, according to the Riverside County Coroner’s Office.

She was found at about 7:44 a.m. in the parking lot of Paloma Valley High School in Menifee with an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound, according to Riverside County Sheriff’s Deputy Albert Martinez.

Hunsaker worked at Paloma Valley Community Library, 31375 Bradley Road, which is located in the school’s parking lot, according to Jonathan Greenberg, superintendent of Perris Union High School District.

There were no other injuries reported today, and there was no threat to students or school staff, Menifee Union School District spokeswoman Betti Cadmus confirmed.

Greenberg said counseling was being provided for students, including those who may have seen the suicide aftermath.

The campus was on lockdown during the investigation as a precautionary measure, Greenberg added.

im being serious when i say stuff like that. im in shock myself... and i am not bragging about the situation that has went on. she will be dearly missed by many including myself. it has even been said by forensic investigators that it was a self-inflicted gun shot wound with the weapon in the car

so please get all facts right before saying that it was a staged murder

Lord Sharna, let me catch up on your post. Ok, I never said anywhere it was a staged murder? I would not know what forensics are saying about the weapon and that it was a self inflicted gun shot wound as I am not on Forensics call back list? I am sorry that you and your mother lost a friend in this Lady who sounds like she had many great friends. I wish someone would have known how upset she was, or someone would have known she was suicidal. Or she would have reached out to someone!! Its so horrible that sometimes we just do not have a clue that sadness in one of our friends has went that far :/

no brenda i was saying that to Mary they said it was self-inflicted in the article above., and thank you. and i wish she would have reached out to someone for help. and maybe there was family problems or other problems and losing her job might have been the last straw for her. i just dont like when people say stuff they have no clue about when someone i know and live with witnesed it first hand. all im saying is people should not open their mouths when they dont know a fact about it
