Coroner: Woman died in childbirth at Pa. home

Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Officials say a woman found dead in a vacation home in Pennsylvania's Pocono Mountains died while giving birth to a stillborn premature baby.

Police are continuing to investigate 41-year-old Bibi Farrouq's death, which they had called suspicious.

Monroe County Coroner Bob Allen says he believes Farrouq died from a medical problem resulting from complications of the delivery. A cause of death is pending the results of toxicology tests.

Farrouq's body was found Saturday. An autopsy found she'd been dead at least 10 days.

A state police investigator tells the Pocono Record Farrouq's husband is a truck driver who found his wife's body after arriving at the home from New York City with his four children.
