A Long Island woman who was missing for one month has been found hanging from a tree in the woods behind her house on Saturday morning, according to her husband’s lawyer.

The body of Lilia Aucapina was discovered hanging from a low branch behind her home in Sagaponack. The lawyer, Colin Astarita, called the 40-year-old mother of two’s death a suicide and said it wasn’t a “total shock.”

“They are all beside themselves at this point,” Astarita said of the woman’s family.

Aucapina’s estranged husband, Carlos R. Aucapina, 50, a self-employed carpenter, was hauled in for violating a protection order his estranged wife had against him but was later released.

Aucapina, a house cleaner, apparently hung herself hours after a dust-up with her husband, cops said. Aucapina got suspicious after he saw another man drive his wife to a parking lot in Wainscott on the morning of her disappearance.

Police in Southampton spent weeks canvassing her neighborhood looking for her but had no leads.
