GALVESTON - An investigator with the Galveston County Medical Examiners Office tells Texas Police News this afternoon that 57-year old Michele Grindberg whose body was discovered in a Galveston alleyway, took her own life.  John Florence says she apparently used a handgun.  The missing person report issued by police last week stated Grindberg was believed to have had a pistol with her when she went missing.

September 18, 2017
Since Texas Police News published the story of the discovery of the body of Michele Grindberg there still has been no formal press release or public statement by the Galveston Police Department.  However, the story did show up in the local Galveston newspaper this morning but with no more information than we published three days ago.

This morning we attempted to get a statement from the police department but was unable to reach anyone with speaking authority.  The Public Information Officer is on vacation so his calls are being taken by the city PIO who does no speak on police issues.  The commander of the Criminal Investigation Division was unavailable, calls going to voice mail.

The Galveston County Medical Examiner is scheduled to perform an autopsy today to determine the cause and manner of her death.  There may be more information after this.

September 16, 2017
Texas Police News has learned the body of 57-year old Michele Grindberg has been discovered in the alley behind the abandoned Falstaff Building, 3300 Strand.  According to sources, a pedestrian discovered the body beside her van and called police.

Galveston Police have not confirmed the discovery but the van towed from the site with a police escort was the 202 white Pontiac Montana bearing her license plates.  It was apparently being towed to police storage where it will be examined by crime scene investigators.

Police had issued a lookout for Grindberg and were concerned about her safety.  The police bulletin is below.

September 15th 2017

Detective with the Galveston Police Department are currently investigating a missing persons report where investigators believe the missing women may be a danger to herself.

Michele Grindberg (White Female 57) has been declared missing since the early morning hours of September 14th 2017.

Grindberg may be in possession of a firearm and believed to be suffering from depression.

Grindberg is believed to be driving a 2002 white Pontiac Montana mini-van (Texas License Plate DFG-0049) and was last seen in Galveston, Texas.

If you have information as the whereabouts of Michele Grindberg, you are encouraged to contact the following numbers:

Galveston Police Dispatch (409) 765-3702 Galveston Police Detectives (409) 497-6704

Galveston Crime Stoppers - Anonymous Tips: (409) 763-8477 www.galveston.crimestoppersweb.com


So, when the PIO for the police department is not available, no information is released. Maybe the department should have two Public Information Officers.
