Foul Play Suspected After Missing Massachusetts Woman is Found Dead in Marsh After Going Out with Man


A Massachusetts woman has been found dead in a marsh along the Salem Turnpike, and the district attorney says that she may be a victim of foul play.

Sherell Pringle, 40, was last seen on Saturday evening when she went out with her boyfriend. When she did not return home on Sunday, her son called police.

“I called my mom, texted my mom, and no answer,” her son, 19-year-old Jahmani Larionne told 7NEWS in Boston. “I gave it a couple of hours and still no answer.” Larionne then tracked her phone, locating it in a sewer were it had been discarded.

Police began to search for the missing woman, finally finding her body on Tuesday alongside the Turnpike.

Authorities have not named any suspects in the case, and a cause of death was not immediately disclosed.

“This is an active and fluid investigation,” a spokesperson for the Essex County DA told CBS Boston. “Foul play is suspected.”

As authorities investigate the case, Pringle’s family is mourning their loss of the vivacious event planner who was known for her upbeat, positive outlook.
