Homicide- Arrest Made

NRPD Press Release

On Friday September 15th, 2023, New Rochelle Police received a report that a deceased body was seen in a third-floor apartment of a multifamily home on Franklin Ave.  New Rochelle Detectives responded and located a deceased body of a female in her 20’s in the apartment.  Detectives quickly developed leads that led to them finding a person of interest who was located in a hotel in Elmsford, NY, who shortly thereafter was taken into custody without incident.  

The identity of the deceased is still under investigation but is believed at this time to possibly be a roommate of the person of interest.  New Rochelle Detectives are working closely with the Westchester County District Attorney’s Office and the Office of the Medical Examiner to determine the identity of the deceased female. 

The person of interest, who is the resident of the apartment where the body was found, was soon found to be a suspect in causing the death of the victim and charged as such.  This case is still an active investigation and anyone with information about this case is asked to call New Rochelle Police at 914-654-2300.   New Rochelle Police would like to acknowledge and thank Tarrytown Police and Elmsford Police for their assistance in this investigation.

ARRESTED: 

Kenya M. Tilford, 40 years of age, of New Rochelle, NY.

CHARGES:

NYS Penal Law 125.25 Murder in the Second Degree – A1 Felony

NYS Penal Law 195.02 Concealment of Human Corpse – E Felony
