Augusta Woman Stabbed to Death

State and Augusta Police are investigating the stabbing death of a young Augusta woman who was found dead inside her apartment at 32 Crosby Street last night.  The death is being investigated as a homicide.  The woman’s boyfriend is being treated at the Augusta hospital also for stab wounds that appear to be self-inflicted.

 

Dead is 24 year old Jillian Jones. Being treated at MaineGeneral is 38 year old Justin Pillsbury.  An autopsy on Jones’s body will begin this morning at the State Medical Examiner’s Office in Augusta. No one has been charged in the case and detectives hope to interview Pillsbury in the next day or so, as soon as his condition improves.

 

Augusta Police were called to the apartment at 8:08 p.m. when a friend of Pillsbury reported the stabbing.
