Police: Woman Found Dead in East Boston Garage Was Murdered

The body was discovered Wednesday morning

Authorities are investigating a homicide after woman was found dead inside an East Boston home's garage Wednesday morning.

Police were called around 8:30 a.m. to 54 Princeton St. after construction crews working on condos found the woman's body in a garage where they store equipment.

The woman has been identified as 19-year-old Blanca Lainez of East Boston. She died from undetermined traumatic injuries, according to police.

Boston EMS was the primary contact and brought the Boston Police Department into the investigation.

Neighbors on Princeton Street watched and waited all day Wednesday for answers.

"It's really, really scary because we have kids," resident Stephanie Lorenzena said.

The investigation is ongoing, and anyone with information is asked to call Boston police homicide detectives at 617-343-4470.
