New Milford – Two Victims In Stabbing Incident
A stabbing incident was reported to authorities in New Milford Monday evening.
At around 7:00 p.m., officials received reports of an altercation on Young’s Field Road. Emergency teams were dispatched on-site and discovered a 38-year-old woman with multiple stab wounds on her body. The victim was quickly transported to Danbury Hospital where she was eventually pronounced dead. Recovery teams also found the body of a 32-year-old man in the Housatonic River. Based on available evidence and witness reports, the body could have been the assailant. It is also believed that the victim and attacker knew each other. The case is currently under investigation. Identities have been withheld pending verification and notification of next-of-kin.
This type of incident, regardless of motive, frequently involves reckless or negligent behavior. Needless to say, our communities can be made safer if these culprits are not allowed to roam our streets. That said, it can be challenging for family members to recover from these tragic events. They should be given ample opportunities to grieve, cope, and eventually find closure.
