A body was discovered Sunday night, stowed in the crawl space of a missing woman’s apartment at 169A Calef Road, authorities said.Police and firefighters started searching for Sue Hutchinson in the apartment after her relatives reported a strange odor in the building. The search let to a crawl space hidden behind a false wall panel inside a closet, authorities said. Police detectives removed the wall panel and discovered a woman’s body. The grisly discovery ends the mystery that started Sept. 20, when police said Hutchinson, who is 57, was missing. Eleven days later, authorities also included Hutchinson’s roommate, Stephen Andrade, 36, among the missing. His body was found Oct. 7 at a Motel 6 in Tewksbury, Mass., the apparent victim of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. Shortly before killing himself, Andrade made statements that he killed Hutchinson, concealed her body and fled, according to the news release issued by police and prosecutors. Hutchinson’s daughter reportedly dated Andrade, but had ended their relationship. Andrade, however, continued as Hutchinson’s roommate.
