Chicopee woman’s death deemed suspicious

Holyoke police are investigating the suspicious death of a 28-year-old Chicopee woman, found under a bridge between the Connecticut River and a set of train tracks Sunday morning, police said.

A medical examiner has ruled the death suspicious, said Holyoke police Lieutenant Jim Albert. He said there were no visible gunshot or stab wounds, but declined to say if there were other signs of trauma.

He did not release the woman’s name pending family notification.

Two homeless people walking near the Joseph E. Muller Bridge found the body and told police just after 5:30 a.m., Albert said.

The woman’s body was “within 10 feet of the railroad tracks, and 5 feet of the river,” Albert said.

The Holyoke Police and State Police detectives with the Hampden District Attorney’s office are investigating.

Anyone with information about the woman’s death can call Holyoke police at 413-536-6431.
