HARTFORD, Conn. (WTNH) – Hartford police are investigating a “suspicious death” after a body of a female was found inside an apartment on Mather Street Monday, according to authorities.

Hartford police responded to an apartment upon report of a body found inside. After arriving at the scene, police found the body of a female inside the apartment at 10:44 a.m.

Police said the female appeared to have been dead for several days.

The female has only been identified as Jane Doe.

The Office of the Chief Medical Examiner responded is conducting an investigation into the cause of death.

“It comes as a shock to me, that somebody was dead for several days, because it’s a tight building, where everybody knows everybody, everybody’s neighbors,” Brent Sanders said.

A person who lives on the floor below where the woman was found declined to be on-camera, but said that there had been an odor for a few days.

The Hartford Police Major Crimes and Crime Scenes Division responded and assumed the investigation.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with information on the case is asked to contact the Hartford Police Department’s tip line at 860-722-TIPS (8477).
