PLYMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — Authorities are searching for a Plymouth man in connection with the slaying of his 76-year-old neighbor.

Plymouth County District Attorney Timothy Cruz said during a news conference Saturday that police are looking for 24-year-old Tyler Hagmaier in the killing of Vibeke Rasmussen.

Police say Rasmussen was stabbed more than 30 times in her Plymouth apartment Thursday evening. Hagmaier lives in the apartment across from Rasmussen’s.

Police found Hagmaier’s abandoned vehicle on a bridge in Gill, about 120 miles away, around 9:15 p.m. Friday. Investigators searched the Connecticut River below the bridge but didn’t find Hagmaier.

Authorities say Hagmaier has a history of mental illness. They say he should be considered dangerous and should not be approached.
