Rosemarie Carriage was found clinging to life inside the Robert's Apartments on Grand River Avenue. Sources say she had been stabbed in the chest.
"I heard a lot of noise and by the time I got my pants on and I went out there and saw her being nude and blood gushing out," said Calvin Richardson. "And I immediately went to get a towel to put on her neck."
Police rushed Carriage to the hospital where she died from her injures.
"There was screams heard at 9:30 last night, but the neighbors thought that there were children playing in the hallway so they didn't notify authorities," said another resident. "This is just terrible; this crime in Detroit has got to stop. This is got to stop."
Police say they have a man in custody who use to live at the apartment complex. Police are still investigating a motive for the crime.
