ROCHESTER, N.Y. — Rochester Police say the woman found dead in her apartment in the South Wedge neighborhood on Tuesday was murdered.

Officers found Natasha Graham, 39, dead at apartment on Manor Parkway near Poplar Street. RPD got a call around 11:30 p.m. asking for a check on Graham’s welfare after she hadn’t been heard from by friends or family.

Investigators later determined that Graham was murdered but say they’re not released information on her cause of death.

Graham lived alone in the apartment. RPD says the murder is “likely an isolated incident and not a random act of violence.” Anyone with information on the murder is asked to call 911.
