One dead, one recovering after double stabbing in Amherst

AMHERST, OH (WOIO) - The Lorain County Sheriff's Office is investigating a double stabbing that happened at the Amherst Trail Mobile home park near Route 58 and Route 113 in Amherst.

It happened Tuesday night around 9 p.m. inside a mobile home. Why a 24-year-old woman was found dead is still unclear. 911 tape may help shed some light on what took place.

Neighbor Debbie Carr called 911, when 49-year-old Steven Bullard pounded on her door, asking for help.

"Our neighbor is pounding on the door telling us to call 911," Carr said on the 911 call.

"My neighbor is at the door saying he was shot or stabbed," said Carr's daughter during the call.

Residents said Bullard had blood all over his body. Deputies reported that he was stabbed multiple times, including in his stomach. Lorain County EMS arrived and he was taken to MetroHealth Medical Center by helicopter. He is in fair condition.

The caller on the tape adds, "Oh God there is blood everywhere."

When deputies arrived to Bullard's home, they also found Monica Freedman unresponsive, with one stab wound. She was taken to Amherst Health Center where she later died from her injuries.

Deputies then swept the area, searching for suspects.

Sgt. Randal Koubek with the sheriff's office said, "Bullard says there was someone in the house and he got attacked."

Preliminary investigation revealed there was some kind of scuffle inside the home, possibly between Bullard and Freedman, who deputies said are acquaintances.

There are no other suspects and no charges have been filed. Officers are investigating.
