20-year old Everett woman murdered

EVERETT – Authorities are continuing to investigate the slaying of a 20-year-old woman from Everett, according to a joint press release from Middlesex County District Attorney Gerry Leone and the Everett Police Department.

Officers responded to a call on Pearl Street at 6:44PM on Tuesday to find Jessica Cormier, 20, suffering from stab wounds in the hallway of the triple-decker where she lived with her parents and sister. She was taken to Massachusetts General Hospital where she was pronounced dead.

Police and the DA’s office have declined to comment on possible suspects or a potential motive for the violent crime, but have stated that it does not appear to be a random act.

Screams alerted neighbors who were then drawn to the scene, but no one was seen entering or leaving the victim’s home before police arrived.

Stay tuned to as more information becomes available.
