Hartford police suspect homicide in teen's death
HARTFORD, Wis. (AP) — Court documents indicate Hartford police are investigating the death of a 19-year-old woman as a homicide.
Jessie Blodgett was found dead in her bedroom July 15.
WISN-TV reported that according to court documents, Blodgett’s parents told police their daughter attended a cast party for a local theater production the night before and returned to her parents’ home around 1 a.m.
Documents indicate Blodgett’s mother placed clothing in her daughter’s bedroom around 8 a.m. When Blodgett’s mother returned home from work shortly after noon, she discovered her daughter dead in her bed and called 911.
The search warrant shows investigators observed a "ligature mark" on Blodgett’s neck but did not find anything in the room or house that could make such a mark.
Police declined to comment Monday.
