FBI ends investigation

The FBI has ended its investigation into the disappearance of a woman who fell from a cruise ship two years ago, citing insufficient evidence to prove a crime was committed.

An FBI spokesmans said Tuesday the agency had been looking into what happened on Christmas night 2008 when 36-year-old Jennifer Ellis-Seitz of Winter Haven allegedly fell from a balcony of the Miami-based Norwegian Pearl.

Ellis-Seitz and her husband, Raymond Seitz, took the cruise to celebrate their first anniversary. Four days after Ellis-Seitz disappeared, her family issued a statement saying she had emotional troubles and likely chose to end her life.

Despite a search by the U.S. Coast Guard, the woman’s body was never recovered.
