1 min read

WINDHAM –– Vermont State Police are conducting an ongoing investigation into a February 20 homicide involving 73-year-old Claudia M. Voight in her Windham home. Initially perceived as a non-suspicious medical incident, an autopsy revealed evidence to the contrary.

The autopsy, performed at the Chief Medical Examiner’s Office in Burlington, revealed suspicious factors surrounding Voight’s death. Injuries undetectable without an autopsy were present, leading investigators to reevaluate the nature of her death.

By April, final autopsy findings had confirmed Voight’s cause of death as neck compression, and her manner of death was classified as a homicide.

In the early stages of the investigation, due to its sensitive nature, VSP chose to withhold the incident’s details from the public.

Now, with the investigation having advanced to a stage where information can be disclosed without jeopardizing the case, VSP is sharing details about the crime.

Authorities have indicated they believe Voight’s murder was not random, and at this time, there is no identified threat to the community. However, no suspects are currently in custody.

The ongoing investigation involves members of the Major Crime Unit, Bureau of Criminal Investigations, and Victim Services Unit. VSP assures that further updates will be provided as the case progresses.

At this time, no additional details are available.
