New Haven police are investigating the death of a 24-year-old woman who fell from an upper level of a five-story city parking garage. Police said Joanna Abraham fell from a garage on State Street shortly before 3:30 p.m. Thursday. Witnesses said they heard a scream and the sound of something hitting the sidewalk. Abraham was pronounced dead at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Her last known address was in West Haven. Police said it is not clear which floor Abraham fell from.
