NEW HAVEN, Conn. (AP) _ New Haven police are investigating the death of a 24-year-old woman who fell from an upper level of a five-story city parking garage.
Police say Joanna Abraham fell from a garage on State Street shortly before 3:30 p.m. Thursday. Witnesses say they heard a scream and the sound of something hitting the sidewalk.

Abraham was pronounced dead at Yale-New Haven Hospital. Her last known address was in West Haven.

Police say it’s not clear which floor Abraham fell from. Investigators will be looking at surveillance camera recordings and interviewing witnesses to try to determine if the woman fell by accident, jumped or was a victim of foul play.
