Danielle Taylor of Mashpee was the victim of a suspected homicide at the CapeWind Waterfront Resort on Maravista Avenue Extension. She was 30 years old.

Cape & Islands District Attorney Michael O’Keefe announced today that on Monday evening, February 8, at 6:40 PM, Falmouth police conducted a well-being check at the motel after receiving a call from friends of the resident.

Ms. Taylor was transported to Falmouth Hospital where she was later pronounced dead. The second person was flown by medical helicopter to a hospital in Rhode Island.

The two had been in a previous dating relationship, according to the statement released today from the district attorney’s office.

An autopsy is scheduled for Wednesday morning, February 10, at the Medical Examiner’s Office in Boston.

The matter remains under investigation by Falmouth Police and Massachusetts State Police detectives assigned to the Cape & Islands District Attorney’s Office.
