Police are investigating a possible murder at 9th Street in Selinsgrove
A man is suspected of murdering his wife with a hammer at 9th Street in Selinsgrove, sources told the Orange Street News.
Law enforcement sources will not confirm.
“This is an ongoing investigation,” an officer told the Orange Street News.
Residents reported seeing a person taken out on a stretcher but were told by police not to talk to media.
“They told us we can’t talk about anything,” one neighbor told the Orange Street News.
The woman is a former Selinsgrove borough employee. Many neighbors remembered her fondly.
“This is terrible. Just terrible,” one neighbor told the OSN. “I can’t believe this happened. She was such a wonderful woman. Very kind.”
The suspected murdered was a retired school teacher at Selinsgrove and the victim also worked as branch manager at a local bank manager on Market Street, according to neighbors.
“They seemed like a good, loving couple,” one neighbor told the Orange Street News. “I’m just in shock.”
The Chief of police, District Attorney, PA State police, and Coroner are on the scene.
The Orange Street News is withholding the name of the victim to make sure friends and family are told first.
