SOUTH BRUNSWICK, NJ - Police officers, detectives and investgators spent much of Thursday at the scene of a suspicious death at the Woodhaven Apartments on Jones Drive.

By 7 p.m., two manned police cruisers sat in the front and rear of unit number 607, which was sealed off with yellow crime scene tape.

The officers at the scene would not comment on what had taken place, nor would police spokesman Capt. James Ryan.

Ryan referred all media inquiries to the Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office Thursday night.

Lara Brocklehurst, 18, said she was looking out of the window of a friend's house in the apartment complex around 10 a.m. and saw "a bunch of cop cars, investigators and an ambulance truck" in front of the unit.

According to a white page telephone listings website,the address was the home of Samantha N. Ross, 47.

As of 9:30 p.m., Middlesex County Prosecutor's Office Spokesman Jim O'Neill had not responded to requests for information on the incident, or to confirm anything the neighbors reported.

Brocklehurst said her mother, who lives in the complex, knew the woman that died and believed her name was Samantha and that she was married.

She also said her mother told her police officers were knocking on doors in the apartment complex looking for a man, possibly the victim's husband.

"I heard they are looking for him, I know he's missing," she said.

She also said neighbors told her that there was "screaming" coming from the apartment, but that it was not unusual.

"They were always arguing, so (the other neighbors) didn't think anything of it," she said.

Several other residents of the apartment complex declined to comment on the incident.

We will update this story as more information becomes available.
