Two days after Karen Marchioni’s 41st birthday she was found murdered in her own home.
At 11:09am on Monday, October 8, 2001, Karen placed a 911 call to say she had been attacked in her Nelson Street apartment in Framingham, Massachusetts.
When police and paramedics arrived they found Karen unresponsive and lying in a pool of blood. Two hours later, after being airlifted to the hospital, she succumbed to the dozens of stab wounds on her face and neck.
Karen, a near lifelong resident of Framingham, was a founding member of the Framingham Animal Humane Society Shelter.
Almost 15 years after the incident, her family is asking for the help of anyone that might be able to offer new information.
