Authorities identify woman found dead in Nashua apartment on Saturday
NASHUA - Authorities have identified the woman found dead inside of a Chestnut Street apartment this past weekend as 52-year-old Christina Hill.
The New Hampshire Attorney General's Office released the woman's identity Thursday, but are still not revealing her cause or manner of death.
"The investigation into the circumstances that led to Ms. Hill's death is active and ongoing. No further information will be released pending further investigative developments," said a statement issued by New Hampshire Attorney General Joseph Foster and Nashua Police Chief John Seusing.
An autopsy is being completed on Hill but is taking longer than expected for the results, Janice Rundles, senior assistant attorney general, said earlier this week.
City police were called to 32 Chestnut St. Saturday afternoon after the woman's body was discovered inside one of the apartments. Police and investigators have confirmed that the death is suspicious, but they have not provided any additional details.
Authorities have also refused to comment on reports that Hill's body was badly decomposed and found wrapped in a shower curtain.
According to online phone records, Hill was a resident of The Downtowner apartment complex at 32 Chestnut St., which is located near the Nashua Soup Kitchen and Shelter.
"Based on what we know so far, there is no reason for residents to take extraordinary measures, but we do encourage them to use ordinary caution," Rundles said recently. "There is no reason for a real alarm."
Since June 17, nine people have been reported dead in the Gate City, some of them under suspicious and criminal circumstances. Those investigations are ongoing.
No arrests have been made in connection with the suspicious death of Hill.
Anyone with information about her death is urged to contact police at 594-3500, or call the Nashua Crime Line anonymously at 589-1665.
