Police remove bags of evidence from scene of deadly stabbing in Concord
CONCORD — New Hampshire law enforcement agencies investigating a stabbing in Concord that left one woman dead spent part of Wednesday collecting evidence from the scene.
On Tuesday around 8:40 p.m., officers responded to a 911 call for a person hurt in a car at 369 N. State St.
When officers arrived, they found an adult female — later identified as Sabrina Marie Galusha, 23, of Concord — with an apparent stab wound. Emergency crews took Galusha to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead.
Investigators believe the actual incident occurred at the Penacook Place Apartments at 36 Pinehurst St., and officers were at the apartment complex Wednesday carrying bags of evidence out of the building.
Matt Brown, a resident in the building said police had an entrance to the building sealed off with crime scene tape Wednesday morning.
"It's not every morning you open your apartment door, and you've got police line tape across the door right next door," Brown said.
Brown said the incident must have unfolded quickly because he had arrived home at about 7:45 p.m. and said he didn't hear any commotion at that time.
"All I know is my wife was doing laundry and she came in and goes, 'The State Police have our building surrounded,'" Brown told NH1 News.
The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner will perform an autopsy on Galusha to determine her exact cause and manner of death.
The incident remains under investigation, and anyone with information is asked to contact Lt. Sean Ford at (603) 225-8600 or Concord Regional Crimeline at (603) 226-3100.
