Woman Found Stabbed in Falls Apartment, Dies

Cuyahoga Falls Police are investigating the second murder in the city within the past two months. 

The Medical Examiner's Office and Police say a 27-year-old woman was found stabbed inside an apartment in the Falls in the 1000 block of Howe Avenue about 7:15 p.m. Saturday. The victim suffered multiple stab wounds, according to the ME's report. She died about 30 minutes later, according to the report. 

Positive identification of the victim has not been released, pending an autopsy and notification of next-of-kin. 

Prior to the shooting death of Kevin Tiearney back in early August, the last murder recorded in the Falls was the 2014 stabbing death of Amanda Russell outside her home on Eighth Street. Her former boyfriend, Jeffrey Conrad, is serving a life sentence for her murder.
