Woman’s body pulled from Lake Michigan in Gary

Five people — including three newborn babies — were stabbed at an overnight day care center inside a New York City home early Friday, and a woman who had slashed her wrist and was found in the basement was taken into custody, police said. The victims were listed in critical but stable condition.

A woman’s body was pulled from Lake Michigan Monday evening, roughly a day after she went missing while swimming at a beach in Gary, Indiana.

About 5:30 p.m., emergency crews searching the water near Marquette Beach, 1 N. Grand Blvd., found 24-year-old Tiara Hardy’s body about 150 yards from the shoreline, according to Gary Police.

The results of an autopsy were pending Tuesday night, according to the Lake County Coroner’s Office.

Officers initially responded to the beach Monday evening after a caller reported that Hardy had disappeared while she was in the water, police said.
