A 41-year-old woman was found Saturday evening fatally stabbed in a Camden apartment, the county prosecutor’s office announced Sunday.

City firefighters found Christina Pierce with a “puncture wound” in her back after they responded to an apartment on the 800 block of Haddon Avenue around 9 p.m., authorities said. The firefighters were called to the home for an activated smoke alarm.

Pierce was discovered unresponsive in a room in the apartment after the firefighters extinguished a small stove fire, authorities said.

Firefighters and paramedics attempted CPR. They then rushed her to a local hospital where she was pronounced dead, authorities said.

No additional information was immediately available. The incident remains under investigation.

Officials asked anyone with information to contact Det. Kevin Courtney at the prosecutor’s office at 856-397-6770 or Camden County Police Det. Shawn Donlon at 856-757-7042. Tips can also be emailed to ccpotips@ccprosecutor.org.
