Officials: Suspicious death investigation underway after woman’s body found in Rochester storage unit

Officials are investigating the suspicious death of a woman in Rochester.

Police found the body of 45-year-old Jessica Purslow in an open storage unit at Rochester Self Storage about midnight Sunday, the attorney general’s office said. An autopsy was expected to be performed later in the day.

Officials said the unit Purslow was found in was active, but it’s unclear who was renting it.

The attorney general’s office is seeking the public’s help as it tries to piece together Purslow’s final days.

“We’re looking for anyone that might have information about her recent whereabouts, her recent activities over this past weekend back to Friday … to contact the Rochester police and let them know what they saw or any interaction they might have had with her,” said Senior Assistant Attorney General Geoffrey Ward.

Officials said Purslow is from Rochester.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Rochester police at 603-330-7128.
