[Updated] Reports: 29-year-old woman found dead inside Orchard Street building

[Via The Lo-Down]

There are multiple reports today about a 29-year-old woman who was found "bleeding heavily from a neck wound" at the foot of the stairwell on the first floor of 191 Orchard St. this morning. The woman, identified as Carlisle Brigham, was declared dead at Beth Israel.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the woman was staying at 191 Orchard St. just south of Houston temporarily ... and that she was estranged from her husband, named as Anthony Lindley Champalimaud. (Here is their wedding announcement from the Times.)

The Times is reporting this afternoon that officials are still investigating whether her death "was a murder, a suicide or an accident."

Updated 6:45 p.m.
WCBS reports that the victim is the daughter of former New York City budget director James Brigham, Jr.

Updated 7:54 p.m.
The Daily News reports that the victim's husband was believed to be working in London. He is reportedly vice president of development for YTL Hotels and Properties.

Updated 9:23 p.m.
Police sources told DNAinfo that "it appeared that Brigham had fallen on the steps, cutting the side of her head and neck, and was bleeding heavily when she was found by a neighbor." Also, police did not find a weapon at the scene. In addition: "Sources said she had been drinking Monday morning and called another male friend to tell him, 'I am not happy with my life.'"

Updated 6:30 a.m.
According to the Post, this happened "possibly after tripping on her high heels following a night of drinking with college pals."

Per the Post:

There was so much blood around Brigham’s neck when her body was found at 10:33 a.m. that investigators initially theorized she’d been slashed.

But they later said it appeared to be just a tragic accident, during which she shattered her chin on a step of the first-floor stairwell in the building.
