Update: Grayson’s killer may have committed suicide

TRENTON - The killing of a woman found stabbed to death in her city home may be linked to a man who jumped off the Delaware Memorial Bridge, police said Wednesday.

Police received a 911 call from a resident at 1326 N. Olden Ave. at 12:14 a.m. Wednesday, police said. The caller had found the body of Florence Grayson, who had suffered stab wounds to the upper torso, said Sgt. Mark Kieffer. No weapon was recovered at the scene.

Grayson, 54, who lived with her boyfriend and several other people, likely knew her killer, Kieffer said. Police spent a day combing the home for evidence, with the body removed from the home sometime after 3 p.m. Wednesday, a neighbor said.
A source told The Trentonian Grayson’s body had been left in the house for two days. She becomes the city’s 16th homicide victim of 2012.

A police source said a man who lives in the home is believed to be Grayson’s killer, who allegedly stabbed Grayson to death and then jumped off the Delaware Memorial Bridge. The connection between the apparent suicide and the homicide was discovered when the vehicle of the jumper was connected to the man.
