The husband of a Framingham woman who was found dead Monday has been called “a person of interest” in the investigation into her death, authorities said.
Police are trying to locate Kyle Alleyne, said to be in his mid 20s, for questioning about the death of his wife, Heather Alleyne.
Heather Alleyne, a 19-year-old mother of two, was found dead in the home they shared in Framingham on Monday, after her mother had called for a well-being check because she had not spoken with her.
Family members were particularly concerned because the two had a violent relationship in the past, and Kyle Alleyne recently discovered that he was not the father of Heather’s 2-week-old baby. She had apparently conceived the baby during a brief split last year. Kyle is the father of Heath’s year-old baby.
Cara O’Brien, a spokeswoman for Middlesex District Attorney Gerry Leone, said today that no one has been declared a suspect in the death, but that officials are trying to locate Kyle Alleyne.
“We believe he might have information that may be helpful to determine the circumstances of the victim’s death,” she said.
A cause of death has not been determined – officials are awaiting autopsy results, O’Brien said – but investigators have declared the death to be suspicious and are treating it as a homicide.
