HELENA – The Helena Police Department is investigating the death of a 21-year-old Helena woman found hanging in the back parking lot of Helena United Methodist Church early Nov. 27.

Police discovered the body of Helena resident Brittney Bryan on the morning of Nov. 27 after a church member discovered the body and called police, said Helena police Deputy Chief Tim Carter.

“We are still investigating it, but it appears to be a suicide that happened in the wee hours of the morning,” Carter said, noting Bryan likely died at between 2-3 a.m. Nov. 27.
