Lackawanna police have identified the apparent stabbing victim whose body was found Sunday afternoon in her residence as Tequila Suter, 26, of Wilkesbarre Avenue.

Suter’s body was found at about 1 p.m. Sunday, when a friend’s brother checking on her welfare went into the residence with her landlord.

“It looks like it was stab wounds,” Capt. Joseph Leo said, without providing any more details about those wounds.

No arrest has been made, and detectives were mum on whether they have a possible suspect or even a person of interest in the case.

Lackawanna police believe Suter was killed where she was found, possibly some time Saturday afternoon or evening.

“We’ve got some pretty good leads to follow up on,” Leo said.

Anyone with any information about the case is asked to call Lackawanna detectives at 827-6410.
