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.
