A woman found suffering from serious injuries on Broadway in Chelsea early this morning has died, and authorities are asking for the public’s help to identify her killer.

The woman has been identified as a Revere resident in her 40s. Her name will be released once her next of kin has been notified, according to a joint statement issued by Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes and Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley.

Chelsea Police responded to the area of Broadway and Congress Avenue just after 1 a.m. for a report of a woman lying in the street. Civilian witnesses told police that the woman had been walking from the direction of nearby Everett Avenue when she fell to the ground.

Emergency medical technicians rushed her to Massachusetts General Hospital, where she died later this morning. Her death is being investigated as a homicide.

Chelsea Police detectives and homicide detectives assigned to the Suffolk County State Police Detective Unit are leading that investigation. They are assisted by the State Police Crime Scene Services Section and other specialized units.

Anyone with information about the incident, or who saw or heard suspicious activity early this morning in the area of Broadway, Everett Avenue and Third Street, is asked to call Chelsea Police detectives at 617-466-4843. Tipsters who wish to remain anonymous may also call the Chelsea Police CrimeStoppers tip line at 617-466-4880, text the word CHELSEA and their information to TIP411 (847411), or submit information online.
