The Press Democrat is reporting that a 24 year old woman from Humboldt was found stabbed to death near busy 4th street in the early hours of yesterday.


Police said the body likely had been on the sidewalk for only a few hours before being discovered at 5:21 a.m. The night before, hundreds of trick-or-treaters had thronged the McDonald Avenue neighborhood across the street.


Police identified the victim as Michela Wooldridge, who recently moved from Humboldt County and was possibly homeless.
