NORWICH -- Monday afternoon, Norwich police were called to the scene of the city's first homicide in two years. But Tuesday, police said residents of Spaulding Street should not be concerned for their own safety.
Casey Chadwick, 25, a certified nurses' assistant, was found dead in her apartment just after 2:30 p.m. Monday. Police said there were obvious signs of trauma on her body, but released no further details.
A neighbor said Chadwick and her boyfriend lived in their second-floor apartment for about a year and that the couple was very quiet.
A police source tells Fox CT Chadwick's boyfriend is not a suspect at this time.
A friend of Chadwick, who wished to remain anonymous, said she was a real home-body who liked hanging out with her dog and her boyfriend.
The Norwich Police Detective Division, in conjunction with the Connecticut State Police and the New London County State's Attorney's Office, is actively investigating the death as a homicide. Several leads are being followed.
Anyone with information about this or other criminal activity is asked to contact the Norwich Police Department at (860) 886-5561 or the anonymous tip-line at extension 500.
A GoFundMe page has been set up to help Chadwick's family pay for funeral expenses.
