How long does it take to get an Autopsy?

According to her roommate, Bambo went missing July 9, 2020, and had been hanging in the garage for 3 days.
Last text messages between Gloria Bambo and her White Roommate.
A friend of Gloria Bambo roommate posted this message on twitter before removing the post.
The White Roommate letter starts off:
“Gloria Bambo was my roommate and I’d like to clear up the false narrative that is being spread on social media about her passing. Know that Gloria was diagnosed with Bipolar and anxiety disorder, had endured trauma throughout her life, and was also estranged from her family.”
“Gloria had been renting a room in my house since last September and the last contact that I had with her was on July 9th and our conversation was completely normal. On Friday, July 10th service people came to the door to pick up fans in the house since our water heater in the garage had leaked and the walls needed to be dried out. I texted her and tried to call her asking for her to her answer the door since I was at work but she was unresponsive. When I came home later that evening I checked her room to see if she was okay and I saw her bathroom light on so I had assumed she was in there and fine. My mom was flying in that night to help deal with the water damage so I had to pick her up from the airport and when we got home we discovered Gloria wasn’t in her bathroom or anywhere else in the house. We called the police to report her missing once we had realized she wasn’t in the bathroom and round that she had left an envelope on her bed with her drivers license and her last paycheck (she was fired from her job on July 2nd due to a mistake at work, 8 days before she went missing). I checked every room in the house but didn’t think to check the garage because the garage door is broken and practically nobody goes in there. The police told me that not much would have been done with a missing persons report since she had left on her own accord and was an adult. On July 12th after I got home from work there was an overwhelming smell in the house that made me recheck each room and I found out the was strongest in our laundry room, which shares a wall with the garage. That’s when I checked the garage and found that Gloria had taken her life and I called that police immediately after. Gloria Bambo was loved by me, my family, and my friend that was also close with her and we are all still grieving her death. There are so many hate crimes that black people endure everyday that are not reported, covered up or not believed by police or media. It is understandable why people would jump to such conclusions. But in this case, Gloria, my friend and my roommate suffered from a mental illness. PLEASE STOP THE SPREAD OF FALSE INFORMATION.”
The Problem with this story
- Friday, July 10th service people came to the door to pick up fans in the house since our water heater in the garage had leaked and the walls needed to be dried out.
He mentioned that the garage door was broken and no one goes into the garage, yet service people were coming to pick up fans out of the garage because there was a water leak coming from the garage.
Who was the service people?
2. My mom was flying in that night to help deal with the water damage so I had to pick her up from the airport.
The water leak in the garage was so bad that his mom was flying in that night to help deal with the water damage coming from the garage.
Who is his mother?
3. I checked every room in the house but didn’t think to check the garage because the garage door is broken and practically nobody goes in there.
How did the service people get into the garage if the garage door was broken? How did he know that the water heater was leaking if no one goes into the garage? Service people had been in the garage, and had left fans in the garage?
4. July 12th after I got home from work there was an overwhelming smell in the house.
If he picked his mom up on the 10th she would have been at the house as well, did his mom not smell the body or did he have to wait until he got home?
5. There are so many hate crimes that black people endure everyday that are not reported, covered up or not believed by police or media.
It’s ironic he would say that… we could say the same for this case. White Privilege. Who is this person, still no one knows?
No local or major media coverage. This is a Cover-up.
We need answers McKinney Police Department.
