GREENWICH, CT (WFSB) -

New information has been released after a young woman from Stamford was hit and killed by a train last week.

Medical examiners said 28-year-old Tamar Louis jumped in front of the Metro North train on purpose at the Cos Cob station.

However, her family is challenging that ruling.

Eyewitnesses originally reported that it appeared as though Louis was trying to get her purse that had fallen onto the tracks.

The train involved was headed to New Haven from Grand Central Terminal in New York City. It was an express train and was traveling at about 45 miles per hour.

The MTA is still investigating the incident.
