Stabbing death of 26-year-old Peoria woman under investigation as a homicide

Peoria County Coroner Jamie Harwood says a woman has died after she was stabbed in the chest Thursday night.

First responders were called to the 66 Gas Station at 1016 Western Ave. in Peoria just after 9 p.m. Tanazisha Green, 26, was initially conscious, but Harwood says her condition declined rapidly on scene.

She was later pronounced dead at OSF Saint Francis Medical Center.

The death is under investigation as a homicide. Peoria Police Sgt. Amy Dotson said 53-year-old Cathy A. Logan has been identified as a suspect in the case.
