Police: Woman found dead on sidewalk in Kentucky after falling on knife


BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (WKRN) — Police say a woman is dead after she was found lying on a sidewalk in Kentucky.

Bowling Green Police say they found the woman on Wednesday night on Durbin Drive after doing a welfare check.

Authorities say the 71-year-old woman, identified as Shirley Brince, was surrounded by a large amount of blood with a stab wound to her side.

Brince was taken to the hospital where she later died from her injuries.

Crime scene investigators found a large kitchen knife inside a shoulder bag near the spot where Brince was found.

The bag had a hole where the knife poked through the material.

Detectives found a video camera nearby. The video shows Brince walking down the road and falling.

Police say that she was carrying the bag over her shoulder. She fell with enough force to drive the knife into her side, causing the injury that would lead to her death.

Police are looking for the people in both of the cars below. They apparently stopped and checked on Brince after she fell, police said. According to police, the people in the car are not suspects.

Anyone with information about the people in the cars should call Bowling Green Police at 270-393-4000.
