(Litchfield)--The Litchfield Police Department, along with the Montgomery County Coroner's Office responded to an apparent suicide Monday in Litchfield. According to the Litchfield Police Department, officers responded to the eight hundred block of South Lincoln. Reportedly a cell phone call came from the inside of the residence.

Upon arrival, officers discovered that the residence was secure. Attempts to call the residence by friends and Litchfield Police provided no contact either.

Following a second visit, officers gained entrance into the residence, and found the body of 59 year old Victoria Mattioda deceased in the bedroom, a victim of a self inflicted gun shot wound.

The investigation revealed that Mattioda was depressed over the loss of her husband, Frank, who passed away in February. An investigation is ongoing by the Montgomery County Coroner's Office, and by the Litchfield Police Department.
