Worcester County DA’s Office Investigating Unattended Death in Shrewsbury

SHREWSBURY – The Worcester County District Attorney’s office is investigating an unattended death that occurred at 63 Howe Ave in Shrewsbury.

On Thursday, the DA’s office confirmed with ThisWeekinWorcester.com that there is an investigation into the death at that address. No other information was provided at this time.

An unattended death occurs when a person dies and is not found for days, weeks, or even months — or when someone commits suicide or when a person dies who does not have friends or family nearby to check on them.

According to multiple sources, police were called to the home late Sunday evening for reports of gun shots fired at the address. Additionally, according to sources, one body was removed from the home.
