    New Hampshire Woman Who Went Missing Was Murdered
    Manchester Police

    A body found in a New Hampshire apartment building crawl space has been identified as that of a woman who had been missing since September and whose roommate later killed himself.

    The state attorney general's office say 57-year-old Sue Hutchinson was strangled with a ligature. Autopsy results confirm her death was a homicide.

    Authorities said Thursday the investigation continues to focus on her roommate, 26-year-old Stephen Andrade, who killed himself in a motel room in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, on Oct. 6.

    Hutchinson had been missing since Sept. 20. Her body was found on Sunday after relatives called police and reported a strange odor in her Manchester apartment.

    Officials say they're investigating the circumstances leading up to Hutchinson's killing and Andrade's suicide.
