Beating Victim Identified
NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ A woman found dead in New Haven over the weekend has been identified.
Police say they are investigating the death of 22-year-old Cassandra Mead as a homicide, but have not made any arrests.
They say she had been beaten.
Mead’s father tells the New Haven Register that his daughter suffered from bipolar disorder and had a drug addiction, and had begun “hanging out with the wrong people.”
The medical examiner has not released a cause of death. Mead’s body was found Saturday morning on Union Street.
