Police ID woman whose body was found on subway tracks
Police have identified the woman whose body was found on the subway tracks at the Canal Street station over the weekend as a 22-year-old theater student.
Emily Singleton, a Pennsylvania native who was living in Park Slope, appeared to have died from a fall onto the tracks and was not hit by a train, the New York Post reports.
The young woman was spotted at McKenna’s Pub in Chelsea early Sunday morning. She was later seen entering a subway station at 14th Street and Seventh Avenue. She was found Sunday afternoon covered in soot in between the tracks on the southbound side of the 1 train at the Canal Street station.
Police believe she had been drinking and fell off the subway platform, fatally hitting her head.
Singleton was a recent graduate of Bucknell University who moved to New York to pursue a theater career, the Post reports.
