According to Northern Michigan news outlets, a Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan woman was found dead on the ice below the International Bridge Friday.

Officials reportedly discovered Theresa May Ranger's vehicle parked on the bridge shortly after 1:30 a.m.

Footprints from the abandoned vehicle lead to the bridge railing, and Ranger's body was discovered on the ice in the second lock.

The Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan Police Department reports that foul play is not suspected.

This is a very sad story made worse by the fact that SooToday editor cannot use the word fowl in the correct context. The correct word is FOUL
Perhaps a bit more respect here please.

ningian.. that's hardly the point. It's disrespectful to publish a name in such an incident and that should not happen again..
Ningian 2/15/2014 10:39:19 PM Report

So very sad. The bickering over this lady's name should stop, THAT is disrespectful too. When a name is NOT published, then people complain about that. Many friends I'm sure would like to know she is no longer with us. Condolences to the family.

I'm sorry to the friends and family of this lady that lost her life but why is it wrong for them to publish her name? They are only announcing facts. I myself wouldn't be offended if it was myself or if I knew the person

Thank you sootoday for correcting the first report.
Beej 2/16/2014 8:55:54 AM Report

The last such incident involved a bridge authority employee that worked on the US side, there was not even a mention of it.
Bobby Nerves 2/16/2014 9:32:59 AM Report

Agree with you cliff 76. Condolences to the family.
Wicked 2/16/2014 10:56:45 AM Report

The names of abusers and the abused are not need to print names of this nature.
rcssm69 2/16/2014 1:07:38 PM Report

So people are actually on here complaining about the spelling, incorrect times, etc... WOW!!!
WAVEACTION 2/16/2014 1:16:30 PM Report

Sault rags love to post as much dirt as possible so having an unfortunate persons name posted is right up their alley.
Drmcorpschick 2/16/2014 6:01:22 PM Report

Beej I was just mentioning that it is the second bridge worker in the past few years to jump off the bridge. Sad though
beautiful mommy 2/16/2014 7:18:26 PM Report

It is sad posting a name to this story. But yet when someone abuses their partner their name is always hidden. Should be the other way around !!
Beej 2/16/2014 7:51:24 PM Report

There should have been no story.
It's highly inappropriate to publicize suicides and doing so is certainly not the norm, why this one?
harshbee 2/17/2014 11:51:25 AM Report

this is about a poor women who must of been suffering so much , and now her family and friends will be trying to live with a broken heart. to critisize minor spelling mistakes , is taking away from respect to those who knew her.. ,and placing the attention on himself. God Bless you theresa ,,R.I.P
johnnir hawk 2/17/2014 1:50:52 PM Report

odd one in a sad story like this you are worried about spelling real sad man
Working Man 2/26/2014 9:03:39 PM Report

I think they 'should' post suicide victim's names. How else would anyone who knows the victim and not her family find out?

If I kill myself I would want people to know. I'd be pissed if people didn't find out.
