There are little details available in the circumstances surrounding the death of a woman reportedly found dead in an apartment in the city's South Ward on Friday afternoon.
Police were called to an apartment located in the single digit block of Stratford Place of Friday shortly before 6 p.m. on reports of an unconscious and unresponsive female at that location according to an RLS Metro reporter at the scene during that time.
According to family members that later contacted RLS Metro Breaking News, the woman was identified as Tiniquah Christine, 21, of Newark and reported that Christine was located by authorities inside a bathroom (bathtub) when she was pronounced dead of an unspecified injury by arriving medical staff.
The alleged condition of the victim and the circumstances behind the woman's death that was described by these family member sources will not be released by our organization out of respect to the victim.
A spokesperson for the Essex County Prosecutor's Office would only tell our staff that they are investigating the incident as a homicide.
