Sources: South Farmingdale woman was strangled
Residents in South Farmingdale told News 12 that they were shocked to hear about the death of a 27-year-old woman that’s being investigated as a homicide.
Nassau Police say when they responded to the home they found the body of Kelly Owen, a mother of a 6-year-old girl, in her bed. News 12 sources say she was strangled.
Authorities say there appears to be no obvious signs of a break in. Neighbors say the area has always been safe.
"I've always been safe on this block. Never had a problem,” says Norman Cohen. “Been living here since 1973, so nothing like this ever happened before."
Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick says Kelly was a nursing student, currently on a break, and an active member of the PTA at her daughter’s school.
Authorities say she was found dead by her parents after they noticed her car still in the driveway Wednesday afternoon – a time when she is normally at the school.
Nassau police are asking to public to help them with any and all information that may lead to a suspect by calling Crime Stoppers at 1-800-244-TIPS.
Detective Lt. Stephen Fitzpatrick speaks about Owen's death at the 3:26 mark in this news conference.
