The Volusia County Sheriff’s Office is currently investigating the suspicious death of an Ormond Beach woman, discovered in her bedroom Wednesday afternoon, with her boyfriend found unresponsive in the same room.
Elizabeth Crisanti, 62, was found dead just before 3:30 p.m. Wednesday at her home off Orange Grove Drive in Ormond Beach when Sheriff Deputies arrived to conduct a well-being check.
According to a release, the well-being check was requested by a relative after Crisanti didn’t pick up her grandchildren from school. When no one answered the door, a family member provided deputies a key to enter the home. Deputies made entry and found Crisanti deceased with sharp force injuries.
Crisanti’s boyfriend, Nelson Rivera, 61, was found on the bed in the same bedroom. Deputies found Rivera alive but unresponsive, appearing that he may have overdosed on prescribed medication.
Deputies had Rivera transported to Advent Health Hospital for treatment, and as of Thursday morning, he has not regained consciousness.
The investigation is currently active and ongoing.
