Woman stabbed to death in Chesterton

A woman was found stabbed to death in a vehicle Wednesday morning behind a bar in northwest Indiana.

Officers responded at 9:14 a.m. to a report of an unresponsive woman in a vehicle behind a row of businesses, including the Upper Deck Lounge, in the 100 block of Lois Lane, an alley just east of South Calumet Road, according to Chesterton police and the Chesterton Fire Department.

Nicole Gland, 24, had been stabbed multiple times, according to the Porter County coroner’s office. Unconfirmed reports said she worked as a bartender at the Upper Deck and had left work earlier Wednesday morning.

Police “want to stress that we do not believe there is a continued threat to the community,” the department said in a statement.

The murder is believed to be the first in town in about three years.
