Authorities investigating why a Connecticut woman rammed barricades near the U.S. Capitol found medications in her apartment to treat schizophrenia and other mental disorders, a law enforcement source briefed on the investigation said Friday.

The woman, identified by law enforcement officials as Miriam Carey, 34, was shot dead Thursday.

Investigators searched for clues at the woman’s Stamford, Connecticut, home beginning Thursday, law enforcement sources said. Police and bomb squad units surrounded an apartment complex there and the area remained cordoned off Friday morning.

Other investigators pressed to speak with the woman’s relatives in Brooklyn, New York, but were turned away, federal law enforcement sources told CNN.
