Death of elderly Connecticut woman stuns quiet Stamford neighborhood

    The chaos was unusual in a quiet enclave of Westover where even car break-ins are considered extremely rare.

    Dozens of police officers and other first responders swarmed a $1M Tudor-style home on Hycliff Terrace where a blood-covered woman in her 70s was found dead Monday morning.

    Stamford Police Capt. Richard Conklin said investigators questioned the woman’s husband, who called 911 around 8:30 a.m. Monday to report his wife was “covered in blood and not breathing.” According to neighbors, noises were heard coming from the house at 2am on Monday, five hours before police arrived.

    Conklin declined to describe the circumstances of the woman’s death. Police have also not released the names of the couple, but Conklin said the victim was in her 70s.

    According to Stamford property records, the house is owned by Allen and Eden Claxton, who are both in their 70s.

    We saw them last night at 5, 5.30, 6. Just gardening. They loved gardening,' neighbor Malika McLaughlin said. “Nothing along the lines of what is suspected to have happened to this woman has ever happened in this neighborhood, as far as I know," said Keith Walsh, co-president of the Hycliff Neighborhood Association.

    The Claxtons do not have any children. Neighbors said they often liked traveling to a holiday home in England.

    Stamford Police detectives would not answer questions about the investigation on Tuesday morning.

    Police are being tight-lipped about the circumstances surrounding the death of a woman who was killed in her Westover home on Monday, but said they have interviewed the homeowner.

    Lt. Tom Barcello said police are questioning Allen Claxton, 75, who was at the Hycliff Terrace home when the woman, presumably his wife, Eden Claxton, 74, was killed. Barcello declined to release the woman’s name, unsure whether her closest relatives had been notified of her death.

    Neighbors described police searching back yards and combing the neighborhood for evidence — signs that would suggest the death is being investigated as a homicide, though no criminal charges have been filed in the case.

    They were quiet. They kept to themselves,” said Dean Godown, 82, who has lived in his home for 42 years and estimated the Claxtons had been there for at least 25 years. She was from the Philippines and he is from England and worked in information technology, Godown said.

    Husband of slain Stamford woman returns home to scene of grisly murder
    By John Nickerson

    STAMFORD — His face marked with bruises and a black eye, Allen Claxton has returned to his Westover home, where police say his wife was found dead this week — the victim of the city’s second homicide in the past month.

    Wearing an open shirt revealing ligature marks on his neck, the 75-year-old man opened the door to his Tudor-style home Thursday morning, but said he was advised to not speak about his wife’s death.

    Claxton said he plans to claim his wife’s body from the state Office of the Chief Medical Examiner, who determined Wednesday that Eden Claxton’s death was a homicide caused by her throat being slit.

    Interesting wording:

    Stamford Police Declare 74-Year-Old Woman's Death A Homicide


    Allen Claxton has provided a “certain level of cooperation,” officials said Wednesday afternoon.

    The incident was initially being investigated as an “untimely death,” but police declared the death a homicide after forensic testing, interviews and a search of the home, they said.

    Police believe the homicide was an isolated incident.
