A 29-year-old woman was found bleeding from the neck, with a fractured arm, and in partial cardiac arrest this morning on Orchard Street and died soon after, the Times reports. "She did not look like she was homeless or a hooker," said one witness, who might have been too shaken up to be entirely compassionate. "She had too many accouterments of the average American young person in her 20s: An iPhone and wallet full of plastic." The Journal reports that the victim was living on the Lower East Side while estranged from her husband, and that detectives would like to speak with him. Update: The victim has been identified as Carlisle Brigham, the daughter of St. Louis investment banker and former New York City budget director James Brigham Jr. Last summer, Carlisle married Anthony Lindley Champalimaud, himself from a prominent Portuguese banking family.
