Luckily Walz got in touch with Detective Lopresti who took pity on the frantic Hawaiian and agreed to help. "For some reason, he entertained my call," Walz told the News. "Here we are thousands and thousands of miles away, but he listened to us. All we had was the cross street. It wasn't even his jurisdiction."
Lopresti then went about randomly ringing doorbells near where they thought Kenery was dying. Eventually he saw another attendant leaving a building, went in and started pounding on doors and calling out Kenery's name to no avail. That is until his precinct called him.
Turns out that Walz was still listening to her daughter's cellphone from Hawaii and could hear Lopresti calling her daughter's name. So the detective broke down the door of the apartment where she could hear him the clearest. However he was still unable to find the woman. So in one final attempt Walz hung up on her daughter and called back, at which point Lopresti found the woman's body, covered in a sheet and "wedged between a bed and a wall."

Saving a life is always great news, but whatever emotional and/or psychological struggles this poor woman was dealing with that drove her to suicide, she'll be back facing the next day =/edit on 24-7-2011 by jonibelle because: (no reason given)

The link in the story leads you to a Daily News article that shows her picture. I agree, the News should not have printed her picture. That's why I linked to the Gothamist story instead, even though it had fewer details. I tried to fill in the details myself.
I also hesitated about using her name, but it was all over the linked story so I didn't see the point.
I don't know her story, but I hope she was just at a very low point and now her family and friends can assist her in getting the help she needs to move forward.
