    From what I read last night, police had been called to this address multiple times in the past, on domestic calls. This is just down the street from me, about 1-2 miles; a middle-class neighborhood of older homes and some apartment buildings that are not very expensive. Nothing else released so far, as to name of victim or possible arrests.

    The story has been updated. Apparently her live-in boyfriend stabbed her and fled the scene before the police got there. Later in the night the boyfriend called into the police station and confessed. Another senseless death...

    Apparently this boyfriend had been charged in a murder a few years ago, the shooting death of a teenage girl. The charges were eventually dropped due to some legal issue about not bringing the case to trial in a timely manner or something. If only the courts had handled this older case correctly, this murder may have been prevented.
    A neighbor was quoted as saying that this couple has had DV issues in the past and the young woman had been told by at least one neighbor that sooner or later, this guy would kill her if she didn't get away from him...

    It is so difficult and risky to leave an abusive relationship. In fact, I'd venture that she could have been trying to do just that, as violent people escalate when someone tries to leave and take away their "power." So incredibly sad.
