Fox CT’s Jan Carabeo caught up with neighbors of Miriam Carey at her Stamford apartment building to find out what they knew about Carey before the incident in Washington D.C.

From the Hartford Courant:

Federal and local law enforcement officers who picked through Miriam Carey’s condominium in a quest to unravel of the mystery of the 34-year-old woman’s final minutes of life found no weapons or any evidence that she was angry with the government, sources have told the Courant.

But new evidence emerged Friday suggesting the woman who was shot and killed by police after a bizarre chase in the heart of the nation’s capital had battled mental-health issues.

Law enforcement sources said Carey’s boyfriend called Stamford police to report concerns about Carey’s mental health and whether her young child was at risk of being harmed. Sources said Carey had an obsession with President Obama and that she wanted to meet him. She called herself the “prophet of Stamford,” sources said. Stamford police refused to release the report detailing the incident on Friday.

Reports also indicated authorities found psychiatric medication in Carey’s home. Family members also told news outlets that Carey suffered postpartum depression following the birth of her daughter 18 months ago.
