On Monday January 7th at about 9:48 AM, Worcester Police were dispatched to the Salvation Army at 72 Cambridge St for a report of a possible deceased person. Upon arrival, officers located the deceased person, who was pronounced dead by paramedics on scene. Because the death was unattended, the Crime Scene Unit and Detective Bureau were called to process the scene. Preliminary autopsy reports are inconclusive as to the cause of death of the female victim. We will share additional updates as they become available.
