The Day | Slip on Stairs May Have Killed Carlisle Brigham

Boys Are StupidScott Lynch

Good morning, East Village.

The New York Post reports that Carlisle Brigham may have died from a slip down the stairs. “There was so much blood around Brigham’s neck when her body was found at 10:33 a.m. that investigators initially theorized she’d been slashed. But they later said it appeared to be just a tragic accident, during which she shattered her chin on a step of the first-floor stairwell in the building.” Former mayor Ed Koch called the victim “a wonderful young woman.”

The Post also reports that the woman killed yesterday by a flatbed truck turning onto Sixth Avenue is named Jessica Dworkin, and that she was known around the neighborhood as “the Scooter Lady.”
