Woman's Body Found at Stamford Gym

An elderly woman passed away while in a private changing room at the Stamford facility.

Workers of an L.A. Fitness on Sixth Street in the city discovered the body of an elderly patron in one of their changing rooms Monday, Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin said Tuesday.

The woman, described as a 71-year-old Stamford resident, had apparently gone for a swim earlier in the day and retired to a private changing room, Conklin described.

Investigators said the incident being considered a death by natural causes as the patron reportedly had some ongoing medical issues.


Two Stamford men were arrested on first-degree criminal trespass charges stemming from the removal of construction debris from a Caroline Place residence in Greenwich without building department permits.

However, police confirmed with the Greenwich Building Department that a stop-work order had been issued for the site until necessary permits were obtained.

Lucero and his boss, identified as Kai M. Young, 46, of 81 Pine Hill Ave., were both charged just before 1 p.m. Sept. 18. Each posted a $250 bond and were scheduled to appear Sept. 26 in state Superior Court in Stamford.
