Police Investigate Death of Drexel Grad
Police say a recent Drexel grad was beaten and possibly strangled to death in her West Philadelphia apartment.
Jasmine Wright, 27, was found dead Thursday afternoon at her apartment by the building’s property manager. She was a recent graduate of Drexel University’s School of Public Health.
“Right now it doesn’t appear there was any type of forced entry. It doesn’t appear anything was taken but obviously it’s very much a work in progress. Detectives are going door to door,”Philadelphia Police Capt. James Clark told 6ABC.
“It’s hurt me just to know that it’s right next door,” neighbor Keith Hooks told NBC10. “And to happen to that person who didn’t bother a soul.”
Police are looking for video surveillance from the area. Witnesses are asked to contact Philadelphia Police at 215-686-TIPS (8477), text a tip to PPD TIP (7738847) or online at www.phillypolice.com.
