315 Hycliff Terrace in Stamford

STAMFORD — The death of a woman in an affluent Stamford neighborhood has been ruled a homicide.

Police said Wednesday the victim is Eden Claxton. The husband of the woman,  Allen Claxton, who called 911 is being cooperative, according to police. He has been hospitalized.

Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin says the Claxton’s husband called 911 around 8:30 a.m. Monday to report his wife was covered in blood and not breathing.

Police are calling the homicide an “isolated incident” and said the neighbors/community are not at risk.

Conklin did not describe the circumstances that lead to the woman’s death, but he says her body remained inside the Stamford home Monday afternoon as investigators combed through the scene.

Property records show the home is owned by a couple in their 70s, and it has an assessed value of close to $1 million.

An investigation into the Claxton’s death is ongoing. No arrests have been made.
