Angelica Escamilla fatally stabbed, two injured, during domestic dispute in Lincoln Square

Angelica Escamilla was fatally stabbed and two other people injured during a domestic-related fight Monday afternoon in the North Side Lincoln Square neighborhood, officials said.

The stabbing happened about 3:30 p.m. in the 2100 block of West Windsor, police said.

During the fight, a man armed with a knife stabbed the 20-year-old Escamilla and two other men, ages 19 and 21, according to police and the Cook County medical examiner’s office.

Escamilla, of the 4200 block of North Lincoln, was taken to Advocate Illinois Masonic Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 4:20 p.m., according to the medical examiner’s office.

An autopsy found she died of a stab wound to the chest and her death was ruled a homicide.

The two men were each taken to hospitals. The 21-year-old was in fair condition, and the 19-year-old suffered non-life-threatening lacerations to his face, authorities said.

A person of interest was being questioned Wednesday morning, police said, but no charges have been filed.
