Carlisle Brigham Identified As Victim Found Fatally Injured at 191 Orchard Street
The morning after the bloody incident, and more details have been released regarding the death of a 29-year-old woman at 191 Orchard Street. Mainstream media is reporting the identity of the victim as Carlisle Brigham, the daughter of St. Louis investment banker and onetime New York City budget director James Brigham Jr. She was reportedly estranged from her husband of one year and living with a roommate at the Lower East Side address.
Brigham was found fatally injured – broken arm, bleeding from the neck, and in cardiac arrest – between the first and second floor landing at 191 Orchard Street. She was later pronounced dead at Beth Israel Medical Center. Police are reportedly questioning the estranged husband. It’s unclear at the moment whether the death was suicide, murder, or an accident, however many believe it to be the latter. No official word yet.
Tragic footnote: here is the wedding announcement that was published in the New York Times last summer.
